Azikiwe Mohammed's hip-hop tapestries call for the freedom of incarcerated rappers. Rooted in the Internet, from Twitter's obsession with rappers to viral images to the creation of the works themselves (which are ordered from online stores), Mohammed composes iconography for imprisoned celebrities. His works speak to the divide between the flesh-and-blood people and their cult of fame.
