On New Years Eve we went to go check out the first annual Indie Hip-hop Expo at Club Zen in Maboneng Precinct, Johannesburg. We must say that there is so much right with this show giving artist the opportunity to showcase their talents as well as do some vital networking within the culture we hold so dear. We did take a few pic’s to show you but just note that these were mostly taken at the wrong time and don’t really do the attendance much justice… Check them out here:
Luckily we were able to get some merch manufactured in time for the event and had quite a few items on sale… It was a lot of fun to be at, and this one and really look forward to the next. Big up’s to the organizers, the artists, merchants and most importantly those who attended the show. Without all of you, there wouldn’t be one.
Last night we went to go check out a really awesome art exhibition in Strijdom Park called “Everything I do & Friends”, A 1 night exhibition by South African street artist Kevin Love that included Drawings, Sculptures & Paintings and also featuring his special friends Rasty Knayles, Rekso Le Hond, Veronika Paints, JESTR..
Here are some pic’s of what went down:
I must say it really well put together and everything was presented perfectly with artists even painting live giving there fans a rare opportunity to witness them doing what they do best.
Hope everyone is having a good Friday so far… Thought we’d extend the opportunity for you to have your say and let us know how you think we’re doing when we “do hiphop”…
So, we’ve put together a options for you to have your say and make some suggestions if you feel the need to… Really looking forward to your feedback so that we can continue to better and improve the site… Check it out here:
King Robbo was an underground graffiti artist who’s ongoing feud with street artist Banksy was among the longest “Graffiti Wars” in history.
Sadly, in 2011, due to what has been reported as a serious fall; Robbo fell into a coma and recently succumbed to his injuries on 31st July 2014. He will be sorely missed around the world. Thank you for all that you did Robbo; May you Rest in peace!
