tolerable, I suppose

"I will not accept an inferior position in the art world. Nor have my art called African because I have not correctly and properly given expression to my reality.

I have consistently fought against that kind of philosophy because it is bogus. European artists like Picasso, Braque and Vlaminck were influenced by African art. Everybody sees that and is not opposed to it. But when they see African artists who are influenced by their European training and technique, they expect that African to stick to their traditional forms even if he bends down to copying them.

I do not copy traditional art. I like what I see in the works of people like Giacometti but I do not copy them. I knew Giacometti personally in England, you know. I knew he was influenced by African sculptures. But I would not be influenced by Giacometti, because he was influenced by my ancestors.”

There’s something very hot about the androgynous presentation of this model. I don’t care what gender he/she is, I just want to lick those abs.

I appreciate it sexandsad

This is from Philippa Rice’s comic ‘Soppy’. It upsets me to see so many notes and no credit to the artist.

Her tumblr is http://cardboardlife.tumblr.com

If you see a piece of work without credit take a minute to find the creator, try a reverse google image search, it can make a huge difference.

I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”
