Within this fineliner pen portrait, I pay homage to the face of modern British music by depicting the ‘godfather’ of grime music, Wiley, drawn on W.J. Turner’s English Music text from the 1940s. Although the artwork is monochrome, there is a strong sense of pride within the pose of the subject as I look to celebrate blackness with nuanced mark making; as well as pragmatic placement of the composition.
The original artwork was exhibited at The John Lennon Building with the Liverpool Biennial 2018 and South London Gallery with Bloomberg New Contemporaries.
