Illustrator, graphic designer and painter Joseph “Joe Buck” Buckingham presents Hollis Park, a new website and digital store to showcase his (hip hop influenced) art. The title is a nod to Hollis in Queens (NYC); a neighbourhood he calls home, and a childhood home for hip hop pioneers like Russell Simmons, LL Cool J and Jam Master Jay.
Hip hop music is a leitmotif in Joe Buck’s designs. His work ranges from official cover art for the likes of Kev Brown, Dres (of Black Sheep), K-Def, Paul Nice and Damu The Fudgemunk, to posters inspired by Nas, Large Professor and The Notorious B.I.G., to a homage to drum beats, to De La Soul illustrations, and the list goes on and on…
You might recognize his winning Art4Dilla entry titled J Dilla The SpeciaLIST, a detailed visual documentation of Dilla’s lifework capturing the magnitude of the body of the legacy he left behind.
