Hip hop influences manifest themselves in interesting ways. Obviously, graffiti and photography tend to lead the way in how we interpret the golden age of hip hop, but more and more, paintings have sprung up that start a conversation about the versatile and widespread culture. Los Angeles painter, Ken Flewllyn, who will have work on view concurrently with Brian Viveros’ Tougher Than Leather exhibition, will open Shine in the Thinkspace project room starting this Saturday, October 12. The works are heavily influenced by music culture, but also Japanese aesethetics and pop-culture motifs.
