Last week, Pharrell made his way overseas to attend the Liberatum Hong Kong International Festival of Culture in Hong Kong. While over there, Hypebeast caught up with the multi-faceted influencer to dissect his creativity. In part one of their sit down, Pharrell speaks on how he was introduced to art via close friend Nigo, Asian culture being more open-minded and eclectic than American culture, and the importance of having a good team of people when it comes to approaching any of his current or future projects.

Watch the first part of Hypebeast and Pharrell’s sit down below….
