On Thursday, September 21, 2017 at The Royal American, local culture curators Ill Vibe the Tribe is back with the second installation of ‘Art Binge’! Staying true to the roots of bringing the vibe this Art Market will feature the works of Fart.PDF of Columbia, Maya Ajani of Conway, and Mado Smith and Destini Jihada of Charleston, SC. Prepare for the celestial sounds of Sunrhé, Sir Abstraxxx, and Quis KingSoul.
There will be a surprise treats vendor and Tarot card reading by Hakeem of DopeBlackKing.com. IllVibe’s own resident DJ SistaMisses will be holding down the sounds with DJ SCrib spinning live sets throughout the night.
Fart.Pdf is one of Columbia’s most talented and diverse visual artists. Known most for his salami eye portraits and his fragmented faces, Fart brings his playful portions and structures to life playing heavily with abstract imagery.
Mado Smith’s art bridges internal solitude, textual bursts of color, and earth tones that give off the feeling of the staring the universe in her soul. Destiny’s carefully coiled crystals compliment the vibrations of Mado’s artwork so perfectly it would be an injustice not to display these gems in the same market.
Maya Ajani’s incredible attention to detail and play on colorful cartoon realism is a spiritual glimpse into her world that you’d be crazy not to take apiece home with you. Hakeem will be the providing spiritual guidance through tarot card readings throughout the night.
The performances for the second installation of #ArtBinge are nothing short of soul snatching, in a good way of course. The only thing that shines brighter the Sunrhè’s beauty is her rich vibrato and her pen skills. This angel-faced songbird has bars. Sir Abrstraxxx is bringing his talents all the way from Charlotte with his melodic delivery.
This wordsmith is essentially poetry over a smooth beat. Quis KingSoul, though soft spoken in nature, his music is the perfect vibe on any given day. Nostalgic production coupled with sharp symbolic imagery.
‘Art Binge’ has been described as “the best Charleston has ever been”, drawing crowds of all walks and creativities under one roof. This masterful pop up is sure to be another huge success.
