Infamous JeanClaude opens his new solo show this Sunday in Charlotte, NC at Blacksheep, where they've been holding it down since the very beginning. JeanClaude's work created for the "Pops Slept, She Followed: Time's Remedy" show is a reflection and processing of some heart wrenching events the artist endured this year.
"This solo exhibition is based around one major tradgegy followed by multiple events that challenged my discipline, strength, will, and focus this year so far. This body of work is broken down into mini series. These series represent the major events, giving each part of the show's title a distinctive representation. Thoughts of life, coping with death, what is love?, lust, learning, living, forgiveness, self investing, reviving from darkness, hustle, 'keep going' mentality, strength, and understanding are all elements explored in this multiple mini series exhibition."As we've watched Infamous JeanClaude build his aesthetic, we have seen his work become filled with heavy symbolism and imagery. His NeoGlyph style often conveys optimistic ideas that tie into positive energy, focus, consciousness, sacred geometry, hip-hop, love, and creativity.
We're anticipating this show opening along with many others. Jah Freedom (OM Records) created a special beat tape to coincide with the art work for "Pops Slept, She Followed" that is available for free download. It's a perfect compliment to the art and assists the audience in feeling the vibe of the paintings and digital pieces. Click here to download the eight tracks (plus bonus iPhone backgrounds!).
