Kanye West: From Civilization to Power!

Check out this new video featuring Kanye West!

“From Civilization to Power,” from Marco Brambilla, pays homage to Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescos while depicting Kanye, characters and creatures all in slow motion.

Kanye‘s “Portrait of Power” premieres on Thursday (August 5) on MTV after Jersey Shore. “It’s not a video…it’s a painting!!!” he tweeted.

“This is a highly constructed, highly mannered, somewhat religious tabla that communicates the end of an empire,” Marco said, adding that his “work often deals with the seduction and the alienation present in contemporary culture.”

FYI: Video is not safe for work and includes artistic nudity.
