Have you ever been guilty of using art to get girls?
Only when I attend art gallery openings but outside of that circle, I rarely bring it up because its not hip. They look at you differently and I just wanna be like every other guy sometimes . I'm not playing the victim by the way. You know the party type, the iPhone bearing guy, the guy that watches entourage, etc
Is that the guy you wanna be?
Sometimes, rarely though. Gotta balance things out. Don't wanna be too "crazy" now (Laughs)
Why do you sound like a tortured artist? What keeps you calm?
Hahahaha I am not tortured. Well except as a child and I stay calm by doing yoga and hiking to the top of the mountain every weekend. Just God and myself up there. A bit of solitude
How long does it take to get your hair ready before you leave the house.
I am not gonna lie to you, it definitely takes a while to have my hair proper, neat, presentable for other people (Laughs)
You have Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley hanging in your living room. Are you obsessed with dead people?
(Laughs) No not really. Its just that back in the day, that's when music was music and most of them today (I'm probably gonna sound like I take myself too seriously but I don't).....
Sometimes I like a little Akon. Thank God Prince is still around but majority of the stuff I listen to, yes most of the artists are now sadly gone.
Did you get your anti kinky hair funk from Prince?
No way!! gee. Its a mix between Hendrix, Lenny and MJ (laughs). Would soon be rocking the Obama cut though. Cant go on to be 30 still looking like I do.
Favorite movie of all time
Well I would give you my top 5
1) V for vendetta,
2) The Godfather trilogy
3) Into the wild,
4) The Prestige
5) Whatever works
Would you call yourself a Surrealist?
Oh yeah definitely! I like breaking things up. Things aren't always what you see, dream-like, and I love mystery.
Is there such a thing as bad art?
No some of em are just pure rubbish!
Rubbish could be art. Depends on the viewer. No?
Maybe that viewer doesn't know art but I'm not one to say
So what is art?
(Laughs) I don't know. By the way, I'm not an artist nor do I do art. I just simply happen to love paintings. All I do is talk about them so I wont know what art is lol
Thanks Deen. We need a part deux lol
Check out some of his works. Breathtaking!
