Art Meets Music Presents: Stazzy Solo Exhibition - Vol 1
Art Meets Music returns with our first show of 2018. After a successful 2017, we kick off our first of many shows with a solo exhibition with Stazzy. He is a multidisciplinary artist based in North London who specialises in Portraiture.
This exhibition is a new series of work “IN THE HOOD” that fuses his favoured art styles, Realism & Illustration, and is based around popular figures he has a personal admiration for in one way or another. He uses the use of hoods as an iconic symbol of our younger generation. His biggest achievement as an artist was a commission for The Arsenal Foundation for Arsene Wenger's 20th Anniversary at Arsenal FC. The 5ft x 4ft portrait is formed from all kit colours since his arrival in ‘96 and features his iconic suit and a red, bleeding banner which reads “Arsene Knows” inspired by a photograph by AFCs Chief Photographer Stuart Macfarlane. It now hangs at Arsenal’s Training Ground.
Stazzy is heavily inspired by Londons diverse urban culture but he is also very much inspired by progression, not just in himself but also in the community of artists He has found himself apart of. Stazzy is inspired by the freedom that Art gives him, the journey it’s taken him on and where it will take him in the future. Creating art is his passion and being able to make a living as an artist is a dream.
