Do My Dirt(Naughty by Nature)
An Australian artist based in Tokyo since 2009, and co-founder of China Heights gallery (Sydney, AU). His artwork revolves around pop culture references, 90s rap samples and the visual side of music.
"The 90s rap music I surround myself with is made up of layered samples from older music (and often a different genre). Taking a drum beat from one record, and adding a vocal or riff from another to form something new. To paraphrase RUN-DMC: making something out of nothing, or expressing yourself with what you have readily available. My art practice follows a pre-2000s hip hop approach, visually sampling and re- presenting these unrelated and personally nostalgic things as one."
