Jay Shells New Street Art Project: “Rap Quotes”

5 May

This is awesome! For this ongoing project, Jay Shells creates official-looking street signs that quote famous rap lyrics that shout out specific street corners and locations. He then installs them at those specific street corners and locations. I really love this concept! It combines the poetry of hip hop with a sense of cultural context while simultaneously making the experience social and interactive. Check out the video above and a selection of the signs below!
