Art Basel

Art Basel is the most celebrated haven for art lovers. My favorite exhibit this year during Art Basel were the hip-hop portraits taken by artist/photographer Jonathon Mannion showcased and sponsored by Reebok.

Jonathan has taken photo’s of hip-hop’s greats over the years and found a brilliant, artistic way to turn the collective of images into coveted pieces of art. He captured such poignant moments that truly encapsulate the culture at it’s best. The joy, pain, and sorrow coupled with the expressive characters that represent the culture were on display for all to enjoy.
