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.

So in-between sets by Kanye West, Arctic Monkeys, Spoon, Tegan & Sara, and hundreds more, we will have live-painting, art adorning the stages, and installations throughout the park to experience.

Nothing says summer vacation like the French Riviera. But in the case of David Choe and Estevan Oriol, they much prefer to spend the summer in one of the hardest places in the world to get into: Afghanistan. For the August 2013 issue, we get an exclusive, Anderson Cooper 360 style report from Afghanistan from the journals of David Choe and photos of Estevan Oriol. We follow their trek through the mountains, palaces, jails, and neighborhoods that most of the world has yet to see in over a decade. And they brought paint.
