“My works are planes of temporal accumulation and push the image towards its dissolution. My attention is focused on the last moments of a work when a form of exhausted, at-the-limit beauty is impressed in it. I like taking the image to a breaking point, putting its form into danger.” - Nicola Samorì (x)
Pac was really funny. That’s what people don’t know about him. I used to always tease him. I used to call him the Palmolive Thug ’cause if you ever touch his hand…the boy had the softest hands in the world. Like softest hands with really nice manicured nails and a little bit of weed stuck in them. We used to laugh and I used to tell him he had eyes like Snuffleupagus. Like how you gon’ be a gangsta with Snuffleupagus eyes. What kind of gangsta is that? You a thug in Sesame Street? You know what I’m sayin? You know, real long eyelashes. But it was just me and him being silly. We was kids when we was around each other. I think it was good for him to have that. - Marlon Wayanas about Tupac.
