Awol Erizku : Cosmic Drill
Ben Brown Fine Arts is proud to present Cosmic Drill, our third solo exhibition of Los Angeles-based artist Awol Erizku. The exhibition follows his highly acclaimed shows with Ben Brown Fine Arts, 慢慢燃燒 Slow Burn (Hong Kong, 2018) and Make America Great Again (London, 2017). This exhibition will unveil an alluring new body of work that converges the mediums of painting, photography, and sculpture, while harnessing myriad influences including street markings, hip-hop music, basketball, and NASA telescopic data.
The exhibition title Cosmic Drill references a subgenre of hip hop music, Drill music, which originated in the early 2010s and takes influence from an earlier subgenre of hip-hop, Trap music.
