Hennessy Artistry is an annual event that celebrates various aspects and genres of music through series of engaging concerts and special feature shows. As part of the line up for this year’s gig, the American hiphop image captor was invited to share his vast wealth of knowledge in photography, its place in music and everything in between.

“We are excited about bringing Jonathan Mannion to Nigeria. Both Hennessy and Jonathan have played a key role in the development and formation of the DNA of the Hip Hop Music & Culture. Art and Hip Hop Enthusiasts will be presented with an invaluable opportunity to explore some of Jonathan Mannion’s legendary body of work.  For us, this is an initiative which remains true to Hennessy Artistry – celebrating Music, and in this case, rather creatively and hopefully, memorably” Lere Awokoya – Brand Manager for Hennessy Nigeria.

Some of his choice works will be displayed at the Red Door Gallery in Victoria Island , Lagos in an exhibition which will be accessible to interested members of the public till the 5th of November 2016.

He will be speaking at an interactive session themed “Beyond The Music: Talk Presentation With  Jonathan Mannion” tomorrow the 29th of October 2016 as well as being involved in a photography session and a club tour during the course of his stay.

Mannion is responsible for some of the most prolific hip hop album covers including Jay Z’s debut, Reasonable Doubt. He has had the pleasure of working with some of the most reputable rappers on the planet and is also respected for his works in the frontiers of film, fashion, sports and other industries alike.
