2015 DTLA Art Walk: Dillart Photo Recap
This month, I finally had the chance to take a stroll to the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk, which normally occurs on the second Thursday of every month.
For February, the Art Walk Lounge had a special exhibit to commemorate the life and work of hip hop producer, James Yancey, better known as J. Dilla. J Dilla made beats for artists like A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Slum Village, Busta Rhymes, and Erykah Badu to name a few. His signature sound made of sampled vinyls and shuffled drum beats inspired the sound of producers like Kanye West’s debut College Dropout. To get an idea of Dilla’s unique sound, listen to this track featuring Common and D’Angelo.
The Dillart exhibit featured a handful of works inspired by Dilla’s music.
The back half of the Art Walk Lounge had an exhibit for artist Ashleigh Sumner’s mixed media works.
There was even a DJ to set the mood for the gallery.
