The exhibition lived up to its title in terms of the imagery in the gallery and the attendees opening night!
I was So honored to meet artist Janette Beckman and check out her collaborative efforts working with Gary Lictenstein Editions who together created some iconic silkscreen paintings of some of the games changers in Hip Hop music.
And to my surprise I chatted with a woman who like myself saw LL Cool J’s first ever performance at the ROXY and we both agreed that we knew from that moment on he was going to be a Hip Hop Star.
I also was excited to meet graffiti/graffic artist Cey Adams who literally put a face on Def Jam records with his legendary flyers and album covers that are great conceptual artworks in their own right.
The gallery was filled to the hilt with Hip Hop fans of all generations who enjoyed discussing the paintings and the subjects significants.
