Artist Rashaad Newsome

Working in video, performance, and collage, Rashaad Newsome (American, b. 1979) remixes seemingly chaotic expressions of street culture into rigorously formal compositions. Drawing from high and low sources, he mashes together American hip-hop culture and the European heraldic tradition as a way to celebrate African-American culture.
