T.I. by Jose Parla

Publication: Complex 
Date: August/September 2010

Back in 2010, we had T.I. grace the cover of our August/September issue. The mag also featured the signature script of Brooklyn-based contemporary artist José Parlá. Parlá works with calligraphy to create pieces that resemble the painted, plastered, worn, and sometimes neglected walls of a city, and his style worked perfectly with T.I.'s energy in this shot.
