The Fridge: Aniekan * HKS 181 Paintings

For It Was Written, opening June 7, 7 – 11pm, see the latest from the greatest DC street artists and muralists HKS 181 and Aniekan Udofia. 

Hip hop’s guiding principle of chronicling the culture of urban Americans has been replaced by an egocentric bravado rooted in fantasy. The paintings in It Was Written are born out of the artists' desire to document the importance of the commonly shared narrative to hip hop music. HKS and Aniekan borrow lyrics from the likes of Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest and The Last Emperor to create inventive paintings that re-imagine these classic songs in the visual art arena. 

DJ Nick tha 1da will spin at the opening.
