Often songs by the Notorious B.I.G will be heard in Sharps studio space. The rebellious, aggressive and explicit songs provide much motivation within his work and day-to-day expressive outlets. Sharp created a drawing of the Notorious B.I.G. to understand the artist better. Through the studies of the man's face and life, he was able to see the motive and reason behind the artist's creations. It has also allowed him the opportunity to work with a harsh dominant shadow within the work. It allowed Sharp to channel and be inspired by Caravaggio's masterful working and presentation of light.
