LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
I'll be short and attempt to let the video do all the talking. But, the project is my dedication to Nipsey Hussle and the languorous unwinding that follows hard work; a tribute to g-funk, west coast hip-hop, and it’s opulence by appropriating tenets of the baroque and rococo; reverence for the low and slow precepts of the promenade from Mexican and low-rider social culture; and an exploration of magnifying minority representation beyond the painted 2D surfaces of mural making to a three dimensionalized veneration of community icons.
The procession through the space is a reference to Nipsey’s motto “The Marathon Continues”, a continuous promenade party which mediates three different party spaces and L.A.’s two primary colors, Red and Blue.
The project is titled "Oppositions: A Rose That Grew from Concrete”.
