Artworks Inspired by Hip Hop

Artworks Inspired by Hip Hop

50 years ago, DJ Kool Herc hosted a party in the Bronx that’s gone down in history as the birth place of hip hop. Since that day, the genre has been unstoppable, going on to influence all areas of popular culture, from music, film and fashion, to the world of modern art.

To celebrate this anniversary, at Enter Gallery this week we’re hailing all things hip hop with a collection of limited edition art inspired by the genre. Our collection includes two exclusive new pieces from RYCA, Hipfuckinhop and Sources of Hip Hop – an artwork which portrays the fundamental ingredients of hip hop, and its five pillars – MCing, DJing, graffiti, breakdancing and beatboxing.

In today’s blog, we’re diving a little deeper and exploring a selection of works that feature in this specially-curated collection.
