Pioneering Hip-Hop personality Fab 5 Freddy is currently a featured artist in MOCA’s “Art in The Streets.” A long-time graffiti artist, the founding host of “Yo! MTV Raps” has his first solo exhibit on display at Gallery 151 in Manhattan’s Lower Eastside.
The pieces are a fusion of graffiti and Warhol-influenced painting that embody Fab 5 Freddy’s various experiences.
“I’m remixing forms and shapes from my past and kind of turning it into something new,” he told WPIX in New York. Watch the clip of Freddy discussing the exhibit, which runs through July 1st. For more info visit. .gallery151.com.
