New York's NWA

  • D.R.E.A.M. Poster Show
    MAKE Studio based in Vancouver BC recently held an art show featuring poster designs inspired by Hip Hop.
    I was invited to take part in this show.
    Only 15 limited edition prints of the posters are available for purchase.
    All proceeds from the sale of posters will go towards supporting the incredible work
    of the Community Arts Council of Vancouver.
    The Sheek Louch line “What more can I say, we’re New York’s NWA” is the inspiration for showing LOX as an entrenched part of New York Hip Hop. They speak on the social issues that matter to them much in the way NWA shed light on LAPD brutality and corruption. The overlay of the New York City map creates the body contours of the members and the illustration is reminiscent of map topography. They are a part of the weaving, complex fabric of the city and represent the grime, optimism, drive, and perseverance of New York.
