About the Event

Hip Hop Coast to Coast brings a collection of new works by Queens based Artist Kalif Ausby. Artwork based on social issues Ausby viewed while growing up in the hip hop community. Having a strong love for comic books and animation he addresses issues like the lack of his Black communities representation in comic books and animated media. He began developing characters that embodied the utopian world he grew up in as a youth. Ausbys work focuses on the retelling of urban culture, highlighting positive interactions he saw every day and the way his community channels negativity into music, art, dance and any other form of creative expression. The stories and characters he creates reflect all of his interests as a person from being a martial artist and dancer to a multifaceted visual artist.
