Hip hop culture does not only include music, it also has art, clothing and lifestyle attached to it. Dan Lish is a English illustrator who lived in New York for several years prior to resettling in the UK. He now is bringing us a collection of hip hop inspired commissions in one cohesive project.

|Egostrip Vol 1 – The Essential Hip Hop Art Book, by Dan Lish|
|Illustrator’s stream of consciousness series led to collaborations with world-renowned music artists. Now it’s set to launch as a collectible hardback book, digital book and lithographic prints, after a Kickstarter campaign launching 3September for one month. |
English artist Dan Lish is acclaimed in the hip hop world for his recasting of MCs and producers as mages and cosmic forces. His 2017 album cover for Raekwon’s The Wild sees the rapper envisaged as a giant, towering over New York. This, commissions for De La Soul and Omar, and support from names like Pharoahe Monch and Pete Rock came about through his art series Egostrip. The project sprang organically from Lish’s irrepressible imagination, masterful pen craft and deep love for the genre’s music and culture.
