This is one of the most interesting visual art pieces that I have seen in a long time. The “purple heads” will love it, like I did, one, because it includes an reenactment of “The Last Supper,” but instead of food, it’s “The Last Session,” with a lot of the famous artists that have passed on.
Bob Marley, Pac, Big, Left Eye, Kurt Kobain, Marvin Gaye, Pun and Pimp C are a few of the artists represented. It’s kind of like a marijuana-meets-music piece that Broham, a Los Angeles artist most known for his rapping, had commissioned. Check it out as we do a Q & A to discuss the controversial yet historic piece of art …
M.O.I. JR: Tell us about your piece that you commissioned to be made? What is it called? What is it about?
Broham: The portrait I commissioned is a tribute to the some of the greatest and most influential musicians of the last 40 years. It also flirts with the concept and idea that creativity and weed may go hand in hand. It’s named “The Last Session” and it is an eye catcher.
M.O.I. JR: What makes this piece unique?
Broham: It’s my attempt to make people think, what if this is how it unfolded. Think about how many fans these entertainers must have from a global standpoint and from all walks of life. Can the number of fans for artists from The Last Session equal believers of The Last Supper? Hmmm. All thinking aside, my overall message of The Last Session is unity.
The most unique feature is the effect it has on people. The other is the second look and the appreciation effect it creates. I enjoy the metaphor the most.
M.O.I. JR: How has the response been?
Broham: The response has been electric with 90 percent loving it and 10 percent getting angry or can’t believe I took it there. As The Last Poets would say, “related to what?”
M.O.I. JR: What are you going to commission next?
Broham: I am currently working on Volume Two, which is the same concept, however different artists and totally different setting. The only thing I can promise is that it will be just as hot.
M.O.I. JR: How could someone get in contact with you if they wanted to buy a print?
