Check Out Hip Hop’s Hottest Illustrator Will Prince’s Pop Up Gallery Saturday in NYC

+

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.”

Price will have his NYC debut pop up gallery on Saturday, November 22, in an event sponsored by Why Empire and Blind Barber. RSVP at DoNYC.  Check out some of his work above, and see more here.
