When I was DJing last year in San Francisco, I saw my first glimpse of Justin Hager’s work at a Hip Hop boutique. My first reaction to his clever illustrations was hysteria, my second thought was witty art genius. His work screams “The joke is on you”, the viewer and “I’m laughing”.
The titles of his pieces are a mash up between different pop culture references, TV show title vs Rapper or Movie title vs band name. You get the picture, even if you do not know the artist. He is an amazing Hip Hop illustrator that we have the pleasure to have the scene.
