Painter Will Cotton has a sweet tooth when it comes to art, fashion, eye candy, and real candy — including Katy Perry’s bubblegum pop.
Cotton’s lustrous, sticky-sweet visions of seductive innocence depict nude angels nestled in confections suitable for Marie Antoinette (the Sofia Coppola version). An accomplished painter with an already impressive c.v., Cotton skyrocketed to international attention for the cover art on Perry’s Teenage Dream, before going on to art direct the pop-culture touchstone that is the “California Gurls” video.
