Myspace Nostalgia is an exclusive shoot for La Gazette du Mauvais Gout. The two amazing talents behind the shoot are Hayley Pisaturo, Nicolas Formichetti assistant and Bijoux Altamirano, the art director behind Maluca’s Lola video.
“I wanted to do a piece inspired in part by Myspace gifs but also by No Limit Records album covers.” say Bijoux. “Last year I did a music video for Maluca’s song “Lola” and we were working on incorporating gifs into the video, thinking of different directions to take it artistically. And Maluca brought to my attention the art of No Limit Records covers. I had remembered seeing them, but her reminding me of them really brought it to the forefront of my attention. So that’s why I wanted all of these pieces to be square with lots of layers of smoke and fire and done in a kind of surrealist fashion. A lot of Myspace graphics were inspired by that type of hip hop imagery. But now, it moves.”
