Pop art Portraits

The Venus Bushfires, Nigerian musician
 Source: "Kitsch meets uber cool in the dazzlingly colourful work of Moroccan/UK multi-media artist and photographer Hassan Hajjaj. Infused with the heady flavour of Marrakesh tea-shops and colours of the medina, Hassan’s work pictures a vibrant portrait of contemporary Morocco. Inspired by the late Malian studio photographer Malick Sidibé, Hassan’s portraits are artfully composed and styled, featuring elaborately patterned backdrops, clashing fashion and bold poses.

His 2014 photo series Kesh Angels featured a cool-as all-girl biker gang from Marrakesh and blew up on the internet. These no-nonsense ladies stare out at the viewer, challenging Arabic female stereotypes with their daring poses. In these images, as in all of Hassan’s work, east and west collide in a brilliant pop-culture mashup that amplifies both cultures rather than dilutes.

In his My Rock Stars series, Hassan photographs musician friends from over the years in the same pop aesthetic. Ubiquitous Coca-cola crates, bric-a-brac and other daily consumer goods infiltrate Hassan’s work as props and decorative details on his elaborate custom frames that he creates for each piece. Hanging on the walls of museums and commercial galleries, these pieces create a delightful juxtaposition between high and low brow."

A Simple Man


Hayo Niel sings beautifully.


I love this one - Reason My Matter - and all his songs.


See? Nigerian men are GOOD.

He's not a big name yet, and he will probably change monikers again, but I assure you his work is golden. I've been a lover of the six-track "Free Spirit" since last year.

I completely love track 3 - Move, e mu jo jo, ehn e re'di yen.
<<<Kai, na to begin sexy dance be that.>>>
