Danny Cortes is gaining acclaim for his miniatures, which depict scenes from his Bushwick, Brooklyn neighborhood as well as those influenced by Hip-Hop culture. He details how his work has caught on to being prized purchases in an auction held by Sotheby's which contained other artifacts from the culture.


Before gentrification, Bushwick was a hood that was known for having a mostly Latino and Black community that white folks wouldn’t even consider visiting unless they needed to get some weed for the weekend. But in 2018 Bushwick has become a haven for hipsters, yuppies, and apparently racist Trumpian-types.
