Wake Up In The Sky

Art Palm Beach 2019, Rhymezlikedimez

Drawing from hip-hop stars like Lil Uzi Vert, Pharrell, Sheck Wes, and Playboi Carti, Velghe builds a visual interpretation of the music that moves him, so viewers can hear the soundtrack that the work is based on. Some of Velghe’s most notable works have been with Bruno Mars, Gucci Mane and Kodak Black.

In January, Art Palm Beach collectors and crowds could find a recreation of this work inside The Art Plug Powerhouse.

“I wanted to create a place that’s further away from reality. I want to make the viewer feel like they’re in the clouds, as if they were flying with these flashy icons.”
