Every once in a while we need to throw something a little hip hop on the site, ’cause who doesn’t love some old school Pac or Biggie? There’s always room on our playlists for some throwback rap. San Francisco artist Michelle Guintu‘s latest work, including these tempera paintings of hip hop artists, has been labeled ‘Kindercore’ – part kindergarten part hardcore. Michelle’s installations play with a little of everything, from sewing cigarettes together to crafting McDonald’s paper mache dolls. When asked “what kind of art do you do” Guintu jumbles her words and things get awkward. Maybe because she plays with a little of everything.
New Image Art Gallery presents Michelle Guintu’s first solo exhibition “Walking Home”, opening December 14th, 2013, 7pm-10pm. That’s tomorrow folks! Guintu is creating a sculptural installation for the show as well as exhibiting her paintings of hip hop artists and rock stars. Check it out!
