Nairobi Alt-Rapper Wangechi's 'Artilude Noire' Dreamscapes

Watch Kenyan alt-rapper Wangechi's visual collage 'Artilude Noire (A Theatrical Notion of Disguise).'


In the lead up to her upcoming full-length debut, young Kenyan alt-rapper Wangechi recently took to unveiling her dream-influenced ponderings on the age old question of what constitutes art. The striking yet divisive Artilude Noire alternates between Rhye sensuality and Where The Wild Things Are dreamscapes. Luxury advertising aesthetics and fashion show similarities aside, the images are undoubtedly beautiful. According to HBR, the spoken word piece that accompanies all this visual mind-fuzzing will feature on Wangechi's forthcoming Art 19 LP. Watch the midnight marauding Artilude Noire teaser below.
