A$AP Ferg Pays Homage to A$AP Yams in Painting for Art Basel Miami Beach 2015

Alongside a photo exhibit presented with adidas Skateboarding and curated by Brock Fetch.

adidas Skateboarding and Harlem-based rapper A$AP Ferg will host “Always Strive and Prosper: A Photo Exhibit by Brock Fetch” at this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach. To be used as a platform to unveil the “Traplord” collection, the show serves as a perfect union of art and fashion. The insightful photo exhibit is curated by esteemed photographer Brock Fetch and will highlight the close friendship and camaraderie of the A$AP Mob. In particular, the exhibit will pay tribute to A$AP Yams – who was the founder of the iconic group – with a large-scale painting by A$AP Ferg dedicated to the late artist. You can watch the third installment of the Traplord video series by adidas Skateboarding below, which documents A$AP Ferg’s creative process and discusses his integration of design and fine art in relation to fashion. The “Always Strive and Prosper” exhibition will debut at Art Basel Miami Beach on December 5.
