The B.I.G. Picture: 20 Notorious Works of Art

Twenty years after Biggie’s passing, the Black Frank White keeps pumping inspiration into our lives via the creative arts—not only in the audio realm but also the visual artists. We’ve already taken a look at the illest Biggie murals, now let’s turn our attention to some of the other works created in honor of B.I.G. This is much more than eye candy; it’s an eye feast. A full-course meal of drawings, illustrations, paintings, and animations in honor of Biggie—plus a bonus Buddha sculpture. You like art? You like Big? You’ll like this. Get to it:
