Andrew Thiele’s REWIND Exhibition Tonight at APT 78

What kind of art do you get when cross 1950s abstract expressionism with 1990s hip hop culture? That question will be answered tonight (June 20th) when Apt. 78, uptown Manhattan’s new mecca of cool culture, plays host to the work of Andrew Thiele of design agency Artek. Thiele’s “REWIND” exhibition features over one hundred 11″ x 14″ hip hop propaganda paintings based on flyers, album covers, promo and posters from the ’90s all created by Thiele himself.

As part of the presentation VH1’s “Master of Mix” host Amanda Seales will moderate a brief discusion between Thiele and Apt 78’s owner Jose Morlaes about hip hop’s role in bridging generational gaps. Before and after the talk former Mass Appeal music editor DJ Soul will provide the soundtrack to everyone’s art appreciation. To top it all off attendees will have a chance to enter a raffle in which they can win some of Thiele’s original art from the show.

Check out the flyer for full info on the Andrew Thiele exhibtion and check out some of the art below.
