The world of Todd James is abstract and colorful. The New York based contemporary artist gained recognition after he started tagging in the subway and went on to work with artists like the Beastie Boys, Mobb Deep and Eminem. In his latest project, he created an animated music video for "The Troubles" by U2 featuring Lykke Li. The song is the closing act off of Songs of Innocence, which iPhone owners will recognize as the free album that came along with the device. The video is just as deep, profound and confusing as the song itself, filled with bright war-like images of violence, riots and oddly enough, cats. But at the end of the day, it's a beautiful visual experience that perfectly captures the essence of the track. Check out the video for "The Troubles" below.
