Music streaming giants Spotify hosted their first-ever live music event, 'Who We Be', at London's Alexandra Palace in November, and our artist Emma Grzonkowski ensured she was on the front row with her celebrity-inspired painting.
As an avid collector of Emma's work, Spotify's senior editor Austin Daboh called upon her to depict the show's headline acts: urban artists Bugzy Malone, Dizzee Rascal, Cardi B, Giggs, J Hus and Stefflon Don.
Following its unveiling at the sell-out event, the painting took pride of place at Spotify HQ before being gifted to Bugzy Malone to put in his home.
Emma reveals: "Listening to the 'Who We Be' playlist really helped with my creative process and allowed me to get inside each musician's character. I'm over the moon that Bugzy Malone himself has the piece hanging on his wall!"
