André 3000 x SCAD "I Feel Ya"

  Savannah College of Art and Design and André 3000 Benjamin opened the co-produced exhibition i feel ya at Mana Miami this week, letting the public in on their longstanding relationship. The crowds that flocked to the VIP reception represented interests as diverse as the pieces in the installation, from SCAD alumni and students in fields like performance, sequential art and film, to die hard fans of hip-hop. After absorbing the interplay between the army of 47 suits André wore for Outkast’s reunion tour, Greg Brunkalla’s (B.F.A., film and television, 2001) film and Jimmy O’Neal's (B.F.A., illustration, 1989) reflective Rorschach-like paintings, guests left their reactions on an expression wall where André's drawing of his suit stood watch, ripped from the pages of his sketch book.

How could a simple black suit emblazoned with basic white words inspire a film and six paintings? Come visit and you may see.
