Soviet Painter Makes Hip-Hop His Main Focus

Kanye West

So now we see Hip-Hop x Art mixing in wonderful ways (and I don’t mean that crappy re-done Andy Warhol painting everyone with money gets sh*t). Painter Alexander Melamid has made some great paintings of some of the biggest names in Hip-Hop, past & present. Enjoy the different outlets that Hip-Hop has made over these past 30+ years.

More pics after the jump.
