"Young Thug As Paintings" Exhibit Scheduled For Art Basel Miami Beach 2018

The 'On the Rvn' rhymer is sponsoring the artist's work.

(AllHipHop News) Jeffery "Young Thug" Williams was the muse for Hajar Benjida's Instagram account @youngthugaspaintings. Thugger is now teaming with the Netherlands-based creator for an art installation titled "Young Thug As Paintings."

"I jokingly answered an interview question with 'I hope to discuss renaissance paintings with Thug someday.' 1.5 years later and I’m bringing my project to life together with Young Thug himself," stated Benjida.

The "Young Thug As Paintings" exhibit will be available for viewing December 4-9 at the 18th Annual SCOPE Miami Beach Art Fair during Miami Art Basel 2018. 300 Entertainment and Williams' Young Stoner Life Records are sponsoring the event.

"Young Thug is one of the most profound artists of this generation and we're going to continue to celebrate him in the most innovative ways. Hajar Benjida's display of Thug's influence through art disruption is incredible. This is also a celebration of Hajar's talent and her appreciation of the culture," says Rayna Bass, Head of Cultural Marketing at 300 Entertainment.
