Eine ganz entzückende Rutsche Arbeiten bekommen wir heute, vom in New York City ansässigen Fine Artist Amar Stewart präsentiert. In seinen grandiosen “Master Impressions” masht der gute Mann, royale Gemälde des 17ten Jahrhunderts mit bekannten Ikonen des Hip Hop-Bizz. Inspiration zu dieser Reihe fand Stewart laut eigenen Angaben beim niederländischen Golden-Age Maler Frans Hals, sowie natürlich bei diversen Rap-Artists, wie z.B. Biggie Smalls, 2Pac, Eminem, Jay Z, Nas, Eazy-E, Action Bronson, J Dilla und vielen mehr. Einige Beispiele dieser wirklich extrem dopen “Master Impressions” lassen sich direkt hier unten in Augenschein nehmen. Just have a look + Enjoy:

Amar Stewart’s “Master Impressions” has been expanded into a two part series. In this iteration, New York-based fine artist Stewart is transforming contemporary cultural royalty into their 17th century ‘blue-blooded’ equivalents. Inspired by Dutch Golden-age painter Frans Hals, Stewart is outfitting his subjects in the finest linens of the 17th Century, and thusly asking pertinent questions about the concept of ‘royalty’ in our and other centuries. His strokes are rough yet effervescent, and perfectly embody the artistic integrity and diversity of his influences. In essence, the collection is more than just an exploration of didactic cultural conventions; it is an ode to the Hip-Hop artists that have served as a motivation and inspiration to Stewart throughout his career.
