He did a new interview with NY Times and said the following.

"I was almost in tears," Mr. Desiderio said. "We just hugged each other."

What was your initial reaction to the video?

"As I'm watching the thing, they're smiling and filming my response, and all of a sudden, I realized that it is my "Sleep" painting: "Holy [expletive]! Oh my God!' I was really speechless. Kanye saw things in it that I don't know how he could've seen. Kanye is truly an artist. Talking to him was like speaking to any of my peers in the art world - actually, more like talking to the brightest art students that have their eyes wide open.
For Kanye, who lives in this world of celebrity and fame, the way I understand him now is that he's much more like Andy Warhol. He said one time, "I am Warhol" out of frustration. But he's like an exploded internet version of Warhol allowing these celebs to hang themselves with their own words while he sits there and says, "That's fabulous." Warhol was a mirror for the times. When Kanye goes through all these shenanigans, he's mirroring the times. He said it himself: It's performance art. His whole life is performance art."

This is the best way anyone can describe this era
