A private tour of the Lourve, a photo-op inches away from the Mona Lisa, a night at London's prestigious Arts Club, gallery hopping with artist Anish Kapoor, a visit to David Zwirner gallery, and now a trip to Frieze London—Beyoncé and Jay Z are living the #artlife right.
During their trip across Europe, America's royal couple has been taking time to see the best art offerings from different international cities. In Paris, Bey and Jay's photo in front of the Mona Lisa became the inspiration for hilarious Photoshopped parodies. In London, a visit to David Zwirner gallery resulted in Beyoncé imitating another painting (her version of the Mona Lisa, while possibly unintentional, was dead on). This time, the painting Yonceé is imitating depicts a pageant winner in a headdress, created by Kerry James Marshall, an American artist who depicts real and fictional scenes from African-American history.
The couple also visited Frieze London, which opened yesterday and runs until Oct. 18. At the art fair, Beyonce and Jay took #artselfies in front of various pieces on display. Perhaps they are shopping for a new work to deck out their recently purchased $8.7 million townhouse in London. Whatever their mission, Beyoncé and Jay Z's cultural excursions are making us green with envy.
