Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts and classic ’90s hip-hop – now and forever bonded via “Deez Nuts.” Borne from the vintage hip-hop obsessed mind of Australian-born, Tokyo-based artist Mark Drew, it started out innocently enough as a self-produced zine featuring Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and Peppermint Patty (seen above on the request line) conversing in classic rap lines by Wu-Tang, Nas, Biggie, N.W.A, Snoop, P.E. and more. Now it’s a full fledged exhibition of large scale paint-on-canvas which recently opened at the China Heights gallery in suburban Sydney, Australia. And while previous monumental work of art entitled “Deez Nuts” will always stay near and dear to our hearts, this is pretty great. Take it from folks who luh us some re-worked Peanuts panels.
