Checked out original Hip Hop documenter Janette Beckman's "Punk Rock Hip Hop Mash Up" exhibition at new London gallery space The Punctum on Saturday. The show consists of a mix of original black & white classic photography alongside colourful colabs with legendary New York Graffiti writers put together by Cey Adams. Also on display are a new series of punk mash ups by London artists including Swifty, Ian Wright & Hattie Stewart created especially for the exhibition.
It was dope to meet Janette at the gallery & hear stories about Def Jam's early days shooting the likes of the Beastie Boys, RUN DMC, EPMD, Slick Rick & more. I had to get my copy of 'RAP' signed, her rare '90's photography book. I look forward to future mash ups!
The exhibition runs until Sunday 31st January 2016 at The Punctum Gallery, 16 John Islip Street, London SW1P 4JU (Next to Tate Britain) Facebook page here
