Wu Tang-Inspired Art Show "Champagne Tigers"

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 26, 2014
Wu Tang Clan as a rap group and each solo artist within it, has produced more than a legacy within hip hop but a multifaceted brand that has touched various areas of popular culture. That being said, visual art and music have gone hand-n-hand since the beginning of time. The relationship is joyfully symbiotic and the art forms exchange a dialogue with each other that is interchangeably inspirational. The exhibiting artists are using Wu Tang as the essence of their inspiration. This driving force brings not only a synergy to the work shown but also an admiration of its subjects. Each piece is homage to Wu Tang Clan and a kind of visual “dap” or handshake their amongst fans.
