DETAILS
Hood College alumnus Taurean Washington ’11 will exhibit his work in an upcoming show called “The Re-Education of Taurean Washington.”

Washington’s work is an eclectic mix of modern and contemporary art. As a fan of hip-hop music, he taps into the art of “sampling,” in which lyrics from different songs are referenced directly or indirectly in each piece. Audio instrumentals are also used as a backdrop to provide a soundtrack for the viewer to follow. He has coined the phrase “Art-Hop,” which describes his hip-hop inspired art.

Born 1985 in Fort Worth, Texas, Washington earned his bachelor’s degree in studio art from Hood College in 2011. Prominent African-American artists such as Jean Michel Basquiat, Robert Colescott and Kerry James Marshall are role models for him.
