11x14" watercolors, inks on paper $750
Mr Musichead Gallery
Chuck’s next show of watercolors, “Artput," debuted at Mr Musichead Gallery in West Hollywood June 1st.
With ARTPUT, Chuck D cracks open his unique access to the worlds of Rock and Hip Hop again, this time with laser sharp detours into sport and social commentary as well. His off-the-cuff, courtroom sketch aesthetic belies an innate, distinctive, and prodigious compositional sensibility. Chuck pours forth a here-to-fore undocumented aspect of pop culture history: the point of view of one who has lived it.
Much of the work was completed while on tour, most recently in New Zealand, Australia, Japan, and Korea, with Prophets of Rage, and members of Public Enemy. Each piece is thereby imbued with an incomparable vitality, having in some instances been created while ON stage, as well as the unparalleled provenance of an instant entertainment artifact.
