Hit-maker Pharrell was most definitely feeling happy in Paris as he launched an art exhibition at Galerie Perrotin inspired by his album G I R L.

The multi-award winning singer, songwriter and producer added yet another feather to his lofty cap as gallery owner Emmanuel Perrotin revealed that Pharrell was in fact the co-curator of this 48-piece art collection. All the artworks echoed themes in his latest album; a celebration of femininity, love and freedom.

Twelve pieces were specially created for the collection, including a portrait of Williams dancing with his wife Helen Lasichanh. The idea for the show began to come together in 2013, when Williams attended Perrotin's gallery opening in New York.

Perrotin says, "Pharrell took a few of us to listen to the first five tracks of his upcoming album G I R L... At this moment, we realised that this tribute to women was going to be a worldwide success and would represent a shift in his career. Pharrell made us feel like we were part of it. This project at the gallery in Paris is a natural continuation of this adventure."
