Chuck D’s watercolor art will make its public debut January 12th at Shephard Fairey’s Subliminal Arts Gallery in Los Angeles. The show is a surprise because Chuck D is known as the founder of Public Enemy and a member of the Prophets Of Rage band. Artmageddon is the name of the exhibit and Chuck D said this in a press release:
“Like hip-hop, visual art has the power to deliver a message with an explosive force. Shepard has created a space to remind us all that visual art has a voice, a place, an impact on the world we are living in. It insists that you think and makes you feel. I’m humbled to have my work hang on the walls of Subliminal Projects.”
Chuck D’s visual art is in the permanent collection at The Smithsonian’s National Museum Of African American History And Culture. Last year the hip-hop legend released the solo album Celebration Of Ignorance. For more information on Subliminal Projects check out their website.
