When it comes to Hip Hop Culture, the word “jam” refers to an impromptu moment of encounter and exchange, where writers, Bboys, MCs and DJs from different places, tackle the same space. Writers often develop collective works with a ‘single theme, as in previous years, for example: 2011, Staggioni of life, 2010 The Divine Comedy of Dante, 2009 Tribute to cartoonist Bode … So creating an impromptu moment and letting those that are contaminated by vibration, the ability and the incentives that the artists creating and releasing, giving rise to unique paintings that mark the path of a culture in constant evolution that moves through the streets of our cities to the most important galleries.
AMAZING DAY Brother 2013 is the most important international art event expected in Italy this year.
