Graffiti: Kid Acne The Birth Of Hip Hop

By - Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

THE BIRTH OF HIP-HOP / UNIVERSE RAP from Tom Sykes on Vimeo.

Festival of the Mind presents “The Birth of Hip Hop”, a collaborative mural with graffiti artist and illustrator Kid Acne. The piece is influenced by the work of Dr Katie Edwards, a lecturer who specialises in biblical studies and the impact the sacred text has had on contemporary culture. The large scale mural sees three wise hip-hop artists at a nativity scene bearing gifts of beats at the birth of hip-hop.

The video, shot and edited by Tom Sykes, features progress footage of the mural and a soundtrack from Kid Acne himself with fellow Mongrel Dj Benjamin on the ones and twos.
