'It Was All a Dream'
30 x 40cm
Limited edition 5
An ode to Hollis, Queens, and the Kings of New York. Hip hop has always been a love of mine, and Biggie Smalls was, 'Mos Def', the illest.
When I was in primary school I always thought my name was weird, it didn't sound very 'cool' to me. At university, when I discovered A Tribe Called Quest - Hip hop immediately felt like home. I laughed when I realised Run DMC was from Hollis, Queens, Q-Tip, and Mos Def and all the people I loved we from either Queens or Brooklyn. Now I am proudly 'Hollis Carney', creating vivrant things ;)
I did my high school senior year in DE, then went to Boston University for my freshman year of college. After I graduated, I lived in Park Slope with some friends. No better feeling than being an English girl in New York. (before ICE)
Feat. Biggie Smalls, Mos Def, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay Z, Grandmaster Flowers, Run DMC, LL Cool J, Basquait, Brooklyn Subway.
