About the Art.
Leo Green’s work explores the 1990s hip hop movement. These paintings were influenced by hip pop musicians and their music videos. Snoop Dogg, Aaliyah, Master P and TLC were some of the singers he listened to as a kid. They gave him an insight into a modern narrative of urban myth and fantasy.
When Leo was a child he would remember waking up jamming to his favorite rap artists, watching them portray their life on MTV. Fascinated by their swagger and endless currency. They showed him how to dress and act as a youth. Baggy jean, logo t-shirt, cornrows and a gold chain was the look of his era. The 1990s to 2000s was one of the finest eras to see creative urban people making a mark on the world.
In this series of paintings, Leo Green has chosen to only use black, white, gray and gold. Leo wants his viewers to see his work as the bling of the gallery.
