The Eyejammie gallery was founded in March 2003 * by Bill Adler, who worked with Russell Simmons at Def Jam records starting in 1984. Eyejammie was launched with the purpose of presenting "hip-hop imagery". Bill recognizes that the art form is now 30 years old, and bigger and more influential than ever before, and was quoted as saying, "Hip-hop music gets all the love in the world, but hiphop as a visual art tends to get overlooked. I founded Eyejammie to do what I could to correct that imbalance."
