FLIP HOP | A HIP HOP FLIP BOOK is a series of flip books in tribute to the amazing talents of local hip hop practitioners. Witness these gifted artists process, frame by frame, and be inspired to master your own craft. Photography & Project Instigator: Che Kothari Subject & Artist #1: Elicser Subject & Artist #2: Skam Technical Production & Project Advisor: James Kachan Photo Assistants: Giles Monette, Yannik Anton Special Thanks: Jason Eano, Jacquelyn West and the entire team at Hermann & Audrey, and Ron D As issues with graffiti have been at the forefront of Toronto politics of late, this collection examines graffiti as a legitimate art form. Che Kothari in partnership with acclaimed graffiti artists Skam and Elicser, create two original pieces of Graffiti Art. The spectator is given the opportunity to delve into the process behind the work. This approach brings a context to a medium that is typically understood at face value with little consideration or understanding of the purpose and meaning inherent to the work. The illuminated approach to the graffiti medium puts an artistic lens to a craft that has been a fundamental form of expression throughout history. Posing graffiti as a beautiful expression of very public and accessible art comes at a time of most urgency when the threat of citations to business owners who bare these types of artistic expressions loom on the daily.
