Originally a school project, Benjida ’s new exhibit pays homage to the cultural capital, by juxtaposing him with some of history’s most revered works of art. Each combination offers a glimpse into his fluid sense of style and musicality.

I jokingly answered an interview question with “I hope to discuss renaissance paintings with him someday.” 1.5 years later and I’m bringing my project to life together with Young Thug himself,” stated Benjida.

The exhibit will be available for viewing December 4th through December 9th at the 18th Annual SCOPE Miami Beach Art Fair. SCOPE is one of the most important satellite art fairs that take place during Miami Art Basel. The exhibit is sponsored by Young Stoner Life Records and 300 Entertainment.

He is one of the most profound artists of this generation and we’re going to continue to celebrate him in the most innovative ways.  Hajar Benjida’s display of Thug’s influence through art disruption is incredible. This is also a celebration of Hajar’s talent and her appreciation of the culture,” says Rayna Bass, Head of Cultural Marketing at 300 Entertainment.

His exhibit comes shortly after the release of his latest EP, On the Rvn, which featured surprise appearances from Elton John, Jaden Smith, 6lack, and Offset.
