We're proud to announce the 2019 RapCaviar PANTHEON created by Spotify, and we're honored to be the fabrication partner for this project. For those in the New York City area, the four pieces will be on display at the Brooklyn Museum through Sunday, April 7.
This has been the culmination of so much work and collaboration between artists, designers, sculptors, and creatives. We're bridging art, music, fabrication, design and technology, combining the efforts of many teams and talented people.
Our in-house team of artists immortalized the talents of disruptors Cardi B, Jaden Smith, Gunna, and Juice WRLD by combining traditional sculpture techniques like hand-sculpting with the latest technology available from photogrammetry 3D scanning to digital printing.
Stay tuned for our next article, which will feature an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how this project came together.
Cardi B, Juice WRLD, Jaden Smith and Gunna have been announced as the 2019 inductees to Spotify’s RapCaviar “Pantheon,” the streaming giant announced. Last year, Spotify created the Pantheon, which includes life-sized sculptures of the biggest breakthrough artists of the year, “cultural disruptors who are making an undeniable impact on hip-hop.”
According to the rather humorously worded announcement, “Through Pantheon, Spotify equates the art form of rap to the origins of art and civilization. Much like the ancient Greeks, rap has a pantheon of icons, names that are forever etched into culture, and songs that no one will ever forget… In ancient times, when a hero was celebrated, they were solidified in materials like stone, marble, or bronze in positions that embodied their achievements. The four 2019 RapCaviar inductees will be honored similarly, with masterfully crafted, ornate, life-size sculptures that capture their vibrant personalities.”
