FEBRUARY: J Dilla Birthday Show

Posted by on May 16, 2015 in Mixed Media, Sculpture | No Comments

Almost all caught up with my art posts! So happy WordPress is still up and working! Onto February.

Friend and DJ and artist all around awesome colleague Craig BBC Long put out an art call for a spur of the moment art show to honor the birthday and life of J Dilla – an American record producer and rapper who emerged from the mid-1990s underground hip hop scene in DetroitMichigan. According to his obituary at NPR.org, he “was one of the music industry’s most influential hip-hop artists.”

I had recently heard an interview with his mother on NPR (in honor of his life and death) and realized I heard some of his music from friends in college. I had about a week and a half to crank out some cool stuff for the group show:
