LA-based graphic designer and art director Rannel Ngumuya recently launched a show at a boutique called The Greens in Columbia, Missouri. For the exhibit entitled “IDOLS,” Ngumuya digitally reworked portraits of Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, Andre 3000, Chance the Rapper, Smino, SZA, and JAY-Z. Collectively, “Each piece was created based off a song, video, or project the artist has come out with,” the artist told us.
