Portraits of Hip-Hop’s Golden Era: Double Tapped with Andy Katz

The Instagram feed of Andy Katz shows a well seasoned and multidisciplinary artist celebrating the pioneers of hip-hop. This digital slice of his artistic pie includes charcoal drawings, watercolors, murals in the works, and even portraits in grip tape.

While he mostly portrays rappers and athletes, Katz also has a folio stacked with more unexpected work: hailing from Chester, Maryland, he has entire collection of nautical themed paintings, as well as multiple colorful drawings of crabs, called “crabscapes.”

Head over to his feed to check out portraits of everyone from LL Cool J to DJ Premier to J Dilla.
