If you are not familiar with Reuben Dangoor, the illustrators name has been circulating for a while since his instagram posts which seemed to depict grime legends such as Skepta, Dizee Rascal and D double E as old 18th century Gentry which sent Mcs and fans alike into a frenzy.
So much so, Reuben Dangoor, was invited to join Late at the Tate at Tate Britain and will showcase his " Legends of the Scene " exhibit to gallery-goers young and old, today on Friday 4th December. Speaking at an interview with i-D magazine, Reuben detailed his inspiration behind the paintings, stating " Historically if you were someone important you had a portrait painted of you, and all these MCs were an important part of my life growing up and still are now, and I wanted to honour them in the same sort of way. "
So, head down to Tate from 6pm to witness a little bit of Grime history with Late at the Tate. The night also includes performances from Kurupt FM, DJ Melody Kane as well as a panel discussion in conjunction with Crep Protect which aims to explore the power and influence of celebrity, and the relationship between sneakers and status. Crep Protect founder J2K will be joined by Capital Xtra DJ Manny Norte and Akua Agyemfra Senior Manager, Global Entertainment amongst others.
