Brooklyn Street Art Invades New York City Art Museums (by Lambros StreetArt)
One Street Artist takes his love of hip-hop too far
A Brooklyn-based Street Artist named LAMBROS opened his own Art Exhibits at both the MET and MOMA in late May. Over 6 pieces of Art were put on display.
One of the paintings was directly inspired by the lyrics from a Jay-Z song, where he rhetorically states;
“Put some colored girls in the MoMA” Jay-Z and Kanye West – That’s My Bitch
The Artist did just that. Creating a work of Art that depicts Beyonce Knowles’ in a pose made famous by Audrey Hepburn. The painting was done in a style that combines Street Art with the Harlem Renaissance movement.
What’s more intriguing than the artwork itself is how it was labeled. On the back of the painting was a message claiming that it was “Property of Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter.” The fake placard placed next to the painting denoted that the work of art was from Jay-Z’s Personal Collection.
The Street Artist has since gone on record to state that the painting was meant as a gift to the hip hop legend and that Jay-Z had nothing to do with the questionably illegal act.
Whether or not the MoMA is even legally obligated to return the painting it to its rightful owner remains a question. The scandal surrounding this piece of art already grants it immense value, infamy, and certainly an unknown fate!
