Art is relevant wherever there is life, but to say it’s as appreciated or as relevant as it had been in say the Renaissance Era or really any Era of great strife would be wrong. Artists will always exists. People still want to communicate in different ways to express emotions they can’t vocalize through common day vernacular. The difference between today & yesterday is the artistic capacity the average human being to understand said form of communication. I speak mainly about America. When you have apple & other brands mainly feeding you user friendly technology which doesn’t require you to think, it takes away from that artistic capacity to understand. You sit in front of a MacBook all day. What will you think of a still painting or contemporary dance? Not to say it’s a direct correlation either. You could use technology to broaden that view, but you’d have to have a previous affinity for art. These brands lack user friendliness regardless. Europe escapes this fate only because art is so heavily intertwined with their history that it’s common to be exposed to art even with the technology. The same in Asia, but here, our ability to receive the art input today is a dull blade that hasn’t been sharp for almost 30 years.
NYC in the 1980s.
”After picking up a camera at the age of 15, Jamel Shabazz has been unknowingly become the first “visual documentarian” of hip hop. For over 30 years he’s captured the world around him. Every frame of that world is a time portal that sparks emotion stemming from the scenes they represent. And if there is ever a glimpse into the foundations of street wear and its surrounding culture, it can be found in the pages of his first book.
“Back In The Days” is real deal documentation as it pertains to the origins of hip hop, not to mention hip hop fashion. No 2oK a day models. No makeup artists. No food trucks. The models in the book don’t need runways because they lived the life of style. Jamel Shabazz was there to capture it all.”
