Cotton’s work also inspired the video for Perry’s hit “California Gurls,” on which he acted as artistic director. Perry herself was present for the unveiling at Cotton’s Manhattan studio.

“The day I found Will Cotton, I knew I wanted to live in his cinematic cotton candy world,” the singer said in a statement. “A fantastically art-directed music video and one piece of timeless album artwork later, I can proudly say I am more than a fan.”

You can see an image of the painting above. Certainly it seems to fit in with Perry’s naughty-but-nice persona.

But what do you think of this latest trip by the star into “cotton candy world”?
