Over the past year or so London artist Will Prince has been carving out a space for himself as one of the go-to illustrators in the world of hip hop. The artist, who’s had pieces commissioned by the likes of Action Bronson, Chief Keef, A$AP Mob, Mac Miller, and others, traffics in a style that rides the line between caricature and realism.
“Hip-hop is a huge part of my life’ I live on it, so I guess, subconsciously, I brought my two passions together,” he explained in an interview with MTV News. “As a kid, I was more into cartoons and kid shit, so I was drawing Batman, Dragon Ball Z characters and making my own comics books. If you scroll through my Tumblr you’ll notice I also make a lot of pop art-influenced pieces, very seductive and erotic. I love women like I love hip-hop, so I brought those two passions together, too.”
