1PLUS1PLUS1 ART SHOW PHOTOS
“White Rabbit, hosted the opening reception for the 1Plus1Plus1 art show featuring works by artists TTK, Klashwon, and Sam Woolley. A good amount of the artwork was hip hop themed and/or had references to the 80′s. Some surprise guests appearances at the art show opening ceremony included Big Daddy Kane, Large Professor and Meyhem Lauren.
DJ TJ Mizell [son of Run DMC’s own Jam Master Jay] played nostalgic music from the 80′s and 90′s to create an overall nice balance of retro themed art and music. You can catch TJ live on Beatminerz Radio this week, spinning a popup DJ set in honor of the continuing art show, and spilling the beans on what went on behind scenes at the opening.
If you are looking to purchase art, the price range of all of the pieces was anywhere between $350-$1500+.
