China Heights presents Deez Nuts, a series of paintings on canvas accompanied by a self-produced publication by artist Mark Drew. As well as being the co-founder of China Heights, Mark Drew is an Australian graphic artist, based in Tokyo since 2009. His works primarily reference music, pivoting on a heavy nostalgia for ’90s rap music.

Deez Nuts is a new body of work, which began as a zine of the same name. For this exhibition, Drew has painted large-scale versions of the illustrations found within the zine. The works show Peanuts comics with lyrics from Nas, Wu-Tang Clan, N.W.A, Gang Starr, Public Enemy and more, as dialogue.

Check out the pieces in the gallery above.

Brian Farmer is Highsnobiety's Managing Editor and is based in New York City.
