life & style: Tiffanie Anderson’s Powerful Masterpiece On Nipsey Hussle Resulted In A $101K Bid, Here’s How

Is there anyone in doubt that Tiffanie Anderson’s pieces are true works of art? Her recent tribute to Nipsey Hussle is definitely a powerful masterpiece and it has resulted in a $101,000 bid at the 2019 Wearable Art Gala hosted by Tina Knowles-Lawson and Richard Lawson. It’s understood the art was an instant crowd favourite and even sparking a bidding war between stars Tiffany Haddish, Issa Rae, Tyler Perry and Phylicia Horowitz. All proceeds went to support teen programs at the Lawson’s community-based arts and performance center the WACO Theater. Anderson told Blavity:

Tiffanie Anderson’s Art On Nipsey Hussle $101K Bid

“When I found it sold for $101,000 I was in complete shock.”

“I get very stressed out during auction, you always want things to go well but this was just so next level, I couldn’t even get up from my seat. I was just happy to help contribute to such an incredible cause.”

According to Anderson, she was introduced to the WACO Theater and Ms. Tina by her friend Trell Thomas. However, this isn’t Anderson’s first time contributing her work to the gala. In 2018, her standout piece on Sidney Poitier sparked a bidding war between Blue Ivy and Tyler Perry. She said:

“Being a top seller at The Wearable Art gala 2 years in a row is very humbling.”

“Shining like that in front of so many people I admire and probably couldn’t stop myself from crying in front of if we met is crazy.  Anything they need from me at any time I will deliver.”

Anderson began her work as an artist aged 20, “not knowing I’d be any good at it.”

“For a long time, it was difficult to sell anything so I knew I had to take it to the next level, so I created a style I hadn’t seen before: Broken glass.”

According to Anderson, she worked on her Nipsey piece for nearly three weeks. Her process began by drawing out the image, creating the background, painting the image and then meticulously adding glass to it. She stated:

“It’s TEDIOUS!”

“I’m from Los Angeles so for my entire community, [Nipsey’s death] was a gut punch. We have a housing crisis and gentrification in South LA  and it pushes residents, especially people of color out. Nipsey did a lot to change that provided opportunity, jobs and support to young people and those in need. He inspires me to work very hard.”

“More FIRE”.

“I just want to keep creating bigger and better pieces and wherever it takes me, so be it.”
