CP The Artist

Jersey-raised/ATL-relocated CP's a self-taught, mixed-medium fine/graphic artist who creates vivid portraits of legendary musicians, athletes, and lovely ladies; his collection includes canvased art like the "25th anniversary of Purple Rain" (w/ a guitar-thrashing Prince in front of pink clouds) and a business-suited "Michael Jordan" backed by a bronze city skyline, plus posters like "Swagger Like Us", featuring the heads of Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, and T.I. all set in the torso of a spectacled, smoke-emitting Kanye West, who was nice enough to let CP finish the piece.
