Pharrell and Friends With You (Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III)
Why you should know about them: FriendsWithYou is the fine art collaborative of Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, who work in a range of mediums — paintings, sculptures, large-scale experiential installations, public playgrounds, published works, and live performances. Their post pop visual language is the main theme of their experiential art, which has been shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCANoMi), the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA), Haus der Kulturen der Welt Museum in Berlin, Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum (SBCAF), and Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin.
In 2010, Friends With You and Pharrell collaborated on a psychedelic outdoor installation at Art Basel titled Rainbow City. The same year, FWY designed a wrap for a vintage Rolls Royce, seen in N.E.R.D.'s "Hot and Fun" video. They most recently made a film called "Cloudy" for Pharrell's IAmOther.com.
