Jay-Z was the appropriate figure to break my typical medium of oil paint. After 7,633 thumbtacks, this is what materialized. A piece that illustrates that every line unveils a glimpse into who Jay-Z is. The collective lines and lyrics are what has made this picture clearer and defined Shawn Carter as one of the best. It should also appear as if time moves slower when a genius is at work.
"I’m in the hall already, on the wall already
I’m a work of art, I'm a Warhol already
On another level, on another plane already..." ~ Jay-Z
