The rappers participate in collaborative art show.
Wu Tang Clan’s RZA, Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Parliament-Funkadelic’s Bootsy Collins joined the ranks of fine artists with the opening of Come Together, a collaborative art show at the Andrew Weiss Gallery in Beverly Hills, California.
The displayed works were created over the last few years by teams of musicians from various genres (including hip-hop, rock and funk), under the banner of art house SceneFour. “When Warhol had his factory, people thought it was a joke at the time,” says gallery owner Weiss. “[The Come Together collection] is reminiscent of that. You have the artists, designers and printers all involved in the creation of the art.”
All the artwork is numbered and signed by the artists. A piece featuring the likenesses of RZA, ODB and The Genius was named “The Greatest Painting Of 2010” by the Village Voice. View RZA’s full 360-piece collection here; Chuck D’s work is featured here; and Bootsy’s is available here.
The exhibit will run through November 1.
