19 Oct 2021
In 1985, Chuck D emerged onto the hip-hop scene as part of the politically fuelled group, Public Enemy. Three decades later, Chuck D is a multi-platinum recording artist, recipient of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, an educator, activist and celebrated visual artist. Genesis is proud to announce the first official book of his artwork. Accompanied by a perceptive, insightful commentary composed by the finest mind in hip-hop, Chuck D will guide the reader through his thought process and inspirations, sharing anecdotes and discussing the connotations behind his striking, one-of-a-kind pieces of art.
'I was raised with an artist's mentality; my first 25 years were spent as somebody who wanted to live among graphics and artwork and illustration, and then for the next 30 years it was all music. In the last six years, I've reverted back into the arts, combining all of these elements in my work, still trying to change the world.' - Chuck D
From portraits of his biggest musical inspirations including Nina Simone, Bob Dylan, and the Beastie Boys, to his original creation of the Public Enemy logo, to his political cartoons and sketches that provide a social commentary on the world around him, Chuck D's new book of artwork will offer readers a unique perspective into his life and work.
