What does hip-hop look like? Well, Louisville artist Victor Sweatt shows his vision in the new exhibit “This Is What Hip Hop Looks Like,” at the Krantz Art Gallery, which is tucked in the Jefferson Community & Technical College building at First and Chestnut streets.
Sweatt, a self-taught artist whose work has been shown in galleries around the state and on the East Coast, has created acrylic paintings that show a hip-hop world with members of the animal kingdom standing in for people. He also adopts visual cues from contemporary society, clothing and certain props, that spring from the idea of hip-hop as an internationally shared urban identity.
The exhibit runs through Oct. 2. For more information, call (502) 213-2393 or visit www.jefferson.kctcs.edu.
