JK Keller

Artist/designer JK Keller (lives and works with Keetra Dean Dixon). Found matchbooks manipulated into little hands spelling letters in sign language. Just one of Keller’s many genius projects.

Music Video: GTA “Red Lips feat. Sam Bruno (Skrillex Remix)”

skrillex-redlips-gta04skrillex-redlips-gta02 skrillex-redlips-gta03

We’ve got a contender for music video of the year! Director Grant Singer takes a page out of the Nabil playbook in this surreal visual for Skrillex’s remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”. Fantastic set and costume design here; a terrific follow up to Skrillex and Singer’s “Burial” video, both of which feature the bone-breaking choreography and dancing of Brooklyn’s Adedamola Orisagbemi (better known as Ringmaster Nugget). You’ll wanna watch this one twice.

Watch the official video for “Red Lips” below.
