Excerpt from an interview with ex-prisoner
Henry Perez, 55
Interviewer (I): Is there forced labor?
H: You have to work and if someone doesn’t want to work they put them somewhere called the Special Housing Unit or S.H.U. It’s a place where you only get to come out for one hour a day. It’s a 6x6 feet cube, [with] no windows. I’ve experienced it once because the prison was overcrowded. All you hear is guys screaming from one cell to another.

In a boiling hot studio, working on this beast today (swipe left for painting progress shot) This is the painting that I started at #beestonstreetartfestival the other week. It’s changed quite a lot since then, and will continue to do so, until it’s finished. #graffiti#streetart
The greats weren't great because at birth they could paint//The greats were great because they paint a lot 👩🎨
I’ve always had a soft spot for street art. I love peeking into the soul of a community, even if it’s just through the eyes of a single artist. While I was studying abroad in Belfast, my final project was on street art. I learned so much and realized how important it is that such a medium is supported. There’s a lot of stigma around street art, but I think the more we try to understand the more we’ll all come to appreciate it. This gem is along Portobello Road and was created by @catman_artist featuring some of the best artists of all time including my favourite street artist, Keith Haring.
⚡⭐Imagine if you’d never seen 'Labyrinth'.⚡⭐ How empty and devoid of meaning life would be. You wouldn’t know how to navigate mazes and bogs, get along with muppet creatures, or the power of Magic Dance.Well, for younger generations and the uninitiated, this is a sad reality they must endure.But that could all change this year as Labyrinth returns to theatersnationwide (in the US) after almost 32 years since it premiered.
The films featuring David Bowie you should revisit: ⚡⭐The Last Temptation of Christ, 1988.
Bowie’s Pilate is portrayed not as the craven, villainous character of popular lore, but as something much more implacable and immovable: a bureaucrat with no ideology save the maintenance of the status quo⭐⚡
Bowie is perfect as Andy Warhol — wryly funny, pouring his own innate weirdness into a Warhol-shape, but never quite becoming a caricature, with his mentorship of Basquiat becoming oddly touching. It felt, from a distance, like stunt casting, but Bowie never lets it become so⭐⚡
⚡⭐The Man Who Fell To Earth⭐⚡
For something so influential, David Bowie’s pansexual alien persona of Ziggy Stardust was relatively short-lived, and had come and gone before he was cast as an alien in his first starring role⭐⚡

Vive la France 🇫🇷 ⚽️ J.M. Basquiat, ‘ThreeDelegates’ , 1982.
#JeanMichelBasquiat @mudecmi Mudec Milano 28.10.16- 26.02.17 “Jean-Michel Basquiat is the protagonist of the namesake exhibition at Mudec, the Museum of Cultures of Milan, curated by Jeffrey Deitch and Gianni Mercurio. The museum program itself would deserve a separate text since it wisely provides as link between didactic exhibitions and contemporary art, in this case between the museum’s ethnographic collections and the so-called “primitive art”and the work of Basquiat, one of the most known American artist of the eighties. As manichaean as it sounds, such approach to a museum program provides context and references to the occasional museum visitor, weakening the distance often perceived between artistic production (intellectual and formal) and more conventional, easily relatable subjects.”
I have very little hair on my head so I’m a bit envious of those with luscious locks.
Decided to continue this series of childlike drawings for a few reasons...
The drawings are an exercise in freedom and not giving a fuck like when we were kids.
Screen printing them HUGE would look amazing.
It’s a reminder to tap into childlike creativity and get loose from time to time.
It’s a nice contrast to the more detailed, technical work I’m doing.
Your kid could do them and probably better. But doing childlike work as an adult is more difficult and ultimately beneficial. This reason is for those who don’t understand Basquiat.
Lastly and most importantly... I like ‘em.
