Jehst presents Matt Littler x LetterShepherd - The Art of 'Billy Green is Dead' - Jun 17th, 2017

Iconic Hip Hop musician Jehst commissioned hand-cut collage artist Matt Littler and calligrapher Oli Smart aka LetterShepherd to produce a set of 13 original art pieces – each one to accompany a track from his latest album. His first solo album in 6 years, Jehst’s ‘Billy Green is Dead’ takes its inspiration from the Gil Scott Heron poem of the same name.

“I wanted every track to have it’s own artwork that could stand up on it’s own. I asked Matt specifically to treat it as a body of work for exhibition beyond the album packaging. The artwork is a story and a world within itself. Because for me this album is about a concept; and the artistic statement behind that concept. I’ve expressed it through the music, but this is how Matt and Oli have reinterpreted it within the visual medium. “
