The centers of an American creative industry, aware of its responsibility to make the world a better place, are located along an axis connecting New York, Chicago, and L.A. With intelligent interviews and breathtaking illustrations GOWEST! introduces sixty prominent representatives from the fields of advertising, architecture, art, design, fashion, and photography. However, artists like Terence Koh – who inspired Lady Gaga’s quote, “When I’m around Terence I just want to poop out ideas nonstop” (ArtForum) – refuse to be restricted to one sphere of interest only. GOWEST!, a brilliant realization of the theme by Meiré and Meiré, from the first to the last page offers a fascinating panorama of new horizons.
