World Wide Arts Federation art battles

Staff Pick

The disparate worlds of hip-hop, pro-wrestling and live art collide in artist Fabian Williams' World Wide Arts Federation art battles. A nod to the Hulk Hogan era of the World Wrestling Federation, WWAF puts swagger and showmanship on display for alter ego artist throwdowns. Artists such as Fahamu Pecou, Michi Meko, CP the Artist Palmer, Grace Kisa, Charly Palmer and more dress as gangstas, psycho killers and martial arts mercenaries to talk trash, face off on canvas and be judged Roman coliseum style by a frenzied crowd at Stuart McClean Gallery. Not to be outdone by his peers, Williams dives into the action, too, alternating between two alter egos: the pimptastic Occasional Superstar and trench-coated masked man Exacto. Whatcha gonna do, when the WWAF runs wild on you?
