For Fall & Winter 2020, Givenchy unveils Antigona soft bags for men

Accessories For Fall-Winter 2020, the House of Givenchy has adapted its new Antigona Soft bag especially for the Givenchy man.     Named for the heroine of Greek mythology who inspired the original, iconic Antigona, the Antigona Soft first appeared in the Pre-Fall 2020 women’s lookbook. Revisited in a men’s version, the maxi style debuted on the Fall-Winter 2020 runway in Paris, as a natural extension of this season’s mood.     At a glance, the family resemblance is clear. Like the classic Antigona, the Antigona Soft is based on rigorous geometry and purity of line, transposed into a suppler construction. Inspired by Givenchy’s dual signature, the new men’s bag blends the subtle sensuality found in the women’s style now enhanced with more generous, masculine proportions.     A directional statement among Givenchy leather accessories for men, the Antigona Soft is sophisticated yet versatile. Gliding seamlessly from everyday use to weekender or extended getaways, it comes in a large size (in black or sand beige) and a maxi size; in woven black, white and red leather; with the Givenchy chains print on wool; or in timeless black calf leather. Sleek, practical features include a removable shoulder strap for extra versatility, two spacious zipped compartments, and a zipped inner pocket. Two outer handles with turn-lock hardware add to its refined allure.     The Antigona Soft maxi bag for men will debut in Givenchy boutiques on September, 2020. Retail prices: from 2,290 euros (large).

In conversation with Daan Baeten

Accessories Exclusive interview with the founder of NUBIKK, Daan Baeten.     What made you decide to start your footwear company back in 2012?    As a son from a family with three generations of leather and shoemaking experience, I rolled into the shoe business. Back in 2012, I felt the need to start my own business because I missed a comfortable, fashionable shoe at a fair price. With all the experience I’ve gained from my family in combination with my drive and passion to create things, I started NUBIKK, a shoe brand that believes fashion should go hand in hand with comfort.       What makes Nubikk unique and what is the purpose of creating the shoes?   At NUBIKK we create leather products, from the best Italian leathers, with lightweight soles throughout the entire collection to reach the best comfort. Because customers like the same lush feeling as experienced when wearing sportswear. Additionally, the same level of cushioned insoles is now also used in NUBIKK’s formal wear for women and men, like the high heeled boots and espadrilles. So the purpose of it all is to bring fashionable shoes, combined with comfort, to a wide audience.      How important do you think sustainability is becoming, and how do you incorporate it within your brand?   Sustainability is indeed a very important topic. At NUBIKK, every department is working very hard to look at the possibilities to leave the smallest footprint possible. For example, we care very much about the work environment of our team, in our factories and all suppliers and places where our materials come from. We deliver all our goods completely plastic-free, develop soles made of pure latex, use sugar cane as a material for lightweight soles, hence, the least amount of chemicals are used during the production of our materials. There is an entire section on our website that explains everything we do.      What made you expand your product line to accessories and t-shirts?   Our focus and expertise lie with shoes, but our passion lies with fashion in general. Hence, during the last few seasons, we are exploring other products as well such as handbags for women, accessories like phone cases, and lately t-shirts and sweaters. We had the idea to make a great fitting shirt from organic cotton. To show that shirts made of more sustainable material look and fit much better as compared to products with cheaper and polluting materials.  I am coming from a shoe family. That means my heart is with shoes and a different variety of shoes. We do not solely focus on sneakers but try to expand our horizon.     What can we look forward to from Nubikk to come in the future?   Currently, we are working on several square-toe shaped boots and we recently dropped boots with ‘see-through' glass heels in different colors, with a great fit and removable cushioned insoles. But we also see a shift in our product range moving slowly from sneakers to boots and derby shoes. We have made them all in a cool way. They will drop this winter.  2019 was a great year for us with international expansion and opening our very first flagship store in Amsterdam. For the winter collection of 2020, we have a lot of great new designs coming up and also a big collaboration. On which I can’t say too much but it’s coming soon.   NUBIKK.com Exclusive interview with the founder of NUBIKK, Daan Baeten.     What made you decide to start your footwear company back in 2012?    As a son from a family with three generations of leather and shoemaking experience, I rolled into the shoe business.

I am a 27 year old professional BMX, Photographer and Aspiring Director.  Each of these professions give me creative freedom.. allowing me to work on my own time and do things that not only make me happy but also keep me busy. I have worked in many different fields Dishwasher, Insurance Salesman, Pizza Delivery Driver etc. Also joined the army at one point but quit before they shipped me out.      How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   I can honestly say I have no idea… im focused on succeeding no matter what obstacle stands in front of me.. this is just an obstacle that not only the fashion world but the world in general, will have to conquer.  I see a lot of companies adapting to this new situation. Home shoots, facetime shoots, 3d digital music videos (sam cannon) its amazing to see what we can can do when the waves crash on us!      How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?   Its actually been pretty good giving the circumstances. I am lucky to have a bestfriend and a girlfriend who are both models. I was able to curate and  shoot stories for both Zara Man and Zara women. Other then that its been pretty chill.. playing guitar, hanging with my dog.. smoking a lot of weed if were being honest! Hahahaha…. I also started a radio show on my youtube Channel called “radio augie” where I put together playlist and introduce my audience to new music… its been pretty fun.      What is your first memory with fashion? And how did you start modeling?   Its funny… in Indiana we didn’t have much fashion.. I was always the odd ball though, in my teen years..  I hated how everyone dressed the same…Hollister, Abercrombie and fitch, American eagle those were the go toos for the majority of my peers.  I was always inspired by my skater friends who would get there look from the pages of Thrasher Magazine or a new skate Video that came out.  Modeling came about out of nowhere.. I was living in Long Beach working at a juice bar.. and my buddy Tom took me to a casting for a timberland job… it was my first ever casting… and I booked it. I had to get my passport in under 24 hours and then fly to Mexico City for a week. I met Deb Watson (the stylist on the shoot) She recommended I leave cali and move to nyc to pursue modeling. I owe a lot to her I wouldn’t be where im at now if it wasn’t for her.         What is your daily beauty routine like? And what beauty products you cannot go without?   This doesn’t really apply to me.. I use my girlfriends face stuff and that’s about it… I make sure to wear sunscreen..       What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it?   I would say playing the blues on guitar.. I bought this program online and just started following the step by step guide. Im no chuck berry but maybe one day!     Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your resume.   I lived with the amish for 3 months when I was in 6th grade.. didn’t mind it. Actually fell in love with this amish girl told her I wanted to marry her… got the whole community in an uproar haha       What is your favorite song at the moment and why? Do you have a playlist that you would like to share with us?   I have been listening to a lot of The Growlers and Bon iver  but I have a huge playlist on my Spotify that hits every genre… just look up augie playlist on Spotify and enjoy.      What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?   Walk my dog and drink coffee every morning  used to smoke a spliff but im trying to chill out on smoking throughout the day.      Have you ever been to Amsterdam? If yes, describe your experience of Amsterdam in one sentence.   Yes one time on a trip around Europe.  Lets just say my brain was a little hazy.     What is your go-to work-out for staying in shape? What does working out mean to you?   I just ride my bike everyday tends to work. I cant stand doing things I don’t like… working out being one of them! dont get it twisted if get a little chubby you best believe ill be hitting the gym.     What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far?   I bought a painting from a friend Taras in Paris.. we were at his house drinking wine and I drunkingly purchased his painting… pretty heft expense but well worth it!      At what age did you start with BMX  riding?   At age 14.      What is the most exciting part about BMX riding for you?    It used to be scaring the shit out of myself.. whatever I could do to get my blood going.. but now its just going out with my friends and hanging out…   At home with Austin Aughinbaugh at IMG MODELS.     Who are you  and what is your profession?   My name is Austin Augie or Austin Aughinbaugh.

In conversation with Adam Katz Sinding

Photography In conversation with the incredibly talented photographer Adam Katz Sinding.     Who are you and what is your profession?   My name is Adam Katz Sinding.  Not Adam Katz.  I’m an american photographer but am based in Copenhagen, Denmark for the past 3.5 years.  I grew up in Tacoma, WA, lived in Seattle for 10 years, Paris for 6 months, New York City for 6 years, Amsterdam for 1 year and now here.  I travel(led) to fashion weeks and events around the world for the past 10 years shooting street fashion, backstage, editorials, lookbooks, and campaigns.  Lots of people think I’m a “street style photographer” but…I do a lot more than that. Currently, however…I’m sitting on my ass in Nørrebro and I’m likely the happiest I’ve ever been.     How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   Well, currently, as stated, I’m not working. That opportunity has given me a lot of perspective.  I’m of course worried about finances, but for the most part, it’s being a positive situation. That being said, I assume Fashion Week will resume.  I HOPE not to the same extent as before.  There are talks by the BFC and CFDA of combining women’s and men’s shows into one, and that could be wonderful.  We would all have to travel less, reducing our massive carbon footprint.  We would have more time for real life as well. That being said, the fashion industry is one of excess and glutony.  So who knows…but I would love to see shows combined in order to reduce my impact on the environment, increase my mental health, and generally have a higher quality of life.  People will likely go back to their original consumption levels once the economy bounces back, which is sad.  I just hope that a percentage of them can see a bit clearer what is really a “need” and not just a “want”.     How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?   I ride my bike.  A lot.  As of today I’ve ridden 6488km this year.  Last year I rode 7000km for the whole year.  I’m exploring the beautiful countryside of Denmark, seeing more than likely most Danes have!  It’s an incredible experience, and I bring along a camera and shoot some of the pastoral landscapes I find.  You can see that all on my website in the travel section.     What is in your planning or was in your planning for this year and how will Covid -19 effect that?   I mean…my job is travel.  And that has halted.  I have been in Copenhagen since March 8th, and I dont have a fashion week to look forward to until CPHFW in mid August.  I have a flight to Seattle/Tacoma on July 3rd to visit my mom for the month, and I hope I’m able to take it.  All of my jobs and other travel has been cancelled.  It’s been a bummer, I was meant to be in Mallorca and Girona to ride.  Then Utah right now to ride.  London Men’s FW should be starting in a few days, but that’s cancelled.  Pitti is moved to September.  Milan and Paris mens are cancelled or moved to September. Couture is cancelled.  It’s wild.  But I’m loving being domestic.  Buying groceries.  Riding my bike.  Doing NOTHING.  This interview is the only thing in my planner for today aside from a gravel ride later tonight and then dinner with a friend.  It’s pretty great to have NOTHING to do.     What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it?   I ran 700+km this year prior to being stuck in DK. I lost 500g.  I’ve ridden 6500km (I’d say the approximate equal to running 700km) and I’ve lost 10kg. Seeing how your body works when you’re not travelling, when you can have a routine.  Eating better (slightly) and having lower stress has done wonders for me. It’s been awesome.  Also seeing how people have come together in their isolation is pretty incredible.  In Denmark people really followed the rules for the most part.  We didnt get hit too hard here, but it was great to see people really doing their part to slow the spread.     Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your resume.   I’m a neat-freak.  I spend most of my free time of the bike cleaning and redecorating my apartment in Nørrebro.  I walk around lining up books, wiping down dusty surfaces, polishing off the calcium stains from the hard Danish water.  Vacuumming like a motherfucker (send me free stuff, Dyson!).  My apartment is finally feeling like a home, and that’s such a nice change to Airbnbs and hotels 300 days a year.     What's the first place you'd want to go when it's safe again to travel and go out of our homes and why there?   If I could go anywhere it would be home to Tacoma. If it’s not going to be a “home” place then I’d go to Tbilisi, Georgia.  The FW was cancelled there in May, and I’m really missing Khatchapuri and the Georgian landscapes and people.       What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?   Boil water and make coffee.  Before bed, I watch netflix for the first time in a decade. Before this, I had an account but only my mom used it as I was too busy with work.      What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far? Hmmmmm…that’s hard. Probably Guernica or The Third of May 1808.  They are both hard hard hard subjects, but I love these paintings.  They are especialy relevant in this moment of horrible police brutality in the USA.   Subjugated people being further subjugated or killed by the establishment.  History repeating.  I dont see how they can inspire my work in anyway, but their images do live in my brain, and it’s important to recall these moments of struggle and pain in order to remember how lucky we are in our cozy little bubbles.     What is your work-out routine like, especially nowadays with more time on your hands?   Wake up, ride, ride, ride, coca-cola, rideriderideride, home, shower, falafel pita…sleep.  I rode 926km last week and I feel like I’m unstoppable now. I’m not trying to be faster.  Not trying to be better.  Just trying to explore, use my body, get a nice ugly tan from the Lycra, and see/hear/smell/feel the world that’s outside the city.      Are you able to rest during this time of stillness? 200%.  I like to be busy, but excercise if cathartic for me, so working out is rest for my brain.      What do you miss the most during these times? My friends from FW.  My mom.  My friends back home.  That’s about it.  Nothing else from “before” seems that important anymore.     Follow Adam: WEBSITE: AdamKatzSinding.com INSTAGRAM: @ AKS and @AdamKatzSinding     portrait of Adam by Willem Sizoo and all images in the article by AKS In conversation with the incredibly talented photographer Adam Katz Sinding.     Who are you and what is your profession?   My name is Adam Katz Sinding.  Not Adam Katz.  I’m an american photographer but am based in Copenhagen, Denmark for the past 3.5 years.  I grew up in Tacoma, WA, lived in Seattle for 10 years, Paris for 6 months, New York City for 6 years, Amsterdam for 1 year and now here.  I travel(led) to fashion weeks and events around the world for the past 10 years shooting street fashion, backstage, editorials, lookbooks, and campaigns.  Lots of people think I’m a “street style photographer” but…I do a lot more than that. Currently, however…I’m sitting on my ass in Nørrebro and I’m likely the happiest I’ve ever been.     How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   Well, currently, as stated, I’m not working. That opportunity has given me a lot of perspective.  I’m of course worried about finances, but for the most part, it’s being a positive situation. That being said, I assume Fashion Week will resume.  I HOPE not to the same extent as before.  There are talks by the BFC and CFDA of combining women’s and men’s shows into one, and that could be wonderful.  We would all have to travel less, reducing our massive carbon footprint.  We would have more time for real life as well. That being said, the fashion industry is one of excess and glutony.  So who knows…but I would love to see shows combined in order to reduce my impact on the environment, increase my mental health, and generally have a higher quality of life.  People will likely go back to their original consumption levels once the economy bounces back, which is sad.  I just hope that a percentage of them can see a bit clearer what is really a “need” and not just a “want”.     How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?   I ride my bike.  A lot.  As of today I’ve ridden 6488km this year.  Last year I rode 7000km for the whole year.  I’m exploring the beautiful countryside of Denmark, seeing more than likely most Danes have!  It’s an incredible experience, and I bring along a camera and shoot some of the pastoral landscapes I find.  You can see that all on my website in the travel section.     What is in your planning or was in your planning for this year and how will Covid -19 effect that?   I mean…my job is travel.  And that has halted.  I have been in Copenhagen since March 8th, and I dont have a fashion week to look forward to until CPHFW in mid August.  I have a flight to Seattle/Tacoma on July 3rd to visit my mom for the month, and I hope I’m able to take it.  All of my jobs and other travel has been cancelled.  It’s been a bummer, I was meant to be in Mallorca and Girona to ride.  Then Utah right now to ride.  London Men’s FW should be starting in a few days, but that’s cancelled.  Pitti is moved to September.  Milan and Paris mens are cancelled or moved to September. Couture is cancelled.  It’s wild.  But I’m loving being domestic.  Buying groceries.  Riding my bike.  Doing NOTHING.  This interview is the only thing in my planner for today aside from a gravel ride later tonight and then dinner with a friend.  It’s pretty great to have NOTHING to do.     What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it?   I ran 700+km this year prior to being stuck in DK. I lost 500g.  I’ve ridden 6500km (I’d say the approximate equal to running 700km) and I’ve lost 10kg. Seeing how your body works when you’re not travelling, when you can have a routine.  Eating better (slightly) and having lower stress has done wonders for me. It’s been awesome.  Also seeing how people have come together in their isolation is pretty incredible.  In Denmark people really followed the rules for the most part.  We didnt get hit too hard here, but it was great to see people really doing their part to slow the spread.     Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your resume.   I’m a neat-freak.  I spend most of my free time of the bike cleaning and redecorating my apartment in Nørrebro.  I walk around lining up books, wiping down dusty surfaces, polishing off the calcium stains from the hard Danish water.  Vacuumming like a motherfucker (send me free stuff, Dyson!).  My apartment is finally feeling like a home, and that’s such a nice change to Airbnbs and hotels 300 days a year.     What's the first place you'd want to go when it's safe again to travel and go out of our homes and why there?   If I could go anywhere it would be home to Tacoma. If it’s not going to be a “home” place then I’d go to Tbilisi, Georgia.  The FW was cancelled there in May, and I’m really missing Khatchapuri and the Georgian landscapes and people.       What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?   Boil water and make coffee.  Before bed, I watch netflix for the first time in a decade. Before this, I had an account but only my mom used it as I was too busy with work.      What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far?

How to make Montblanc's NATO strap?

How to make Montblanc's NATO strap?

Watches The Montblanc 1858 collection is inspired by the heritage of Minerva. The design is anchored in the world of mountaineering, with distinctive features referring to the original 1930s chronographs. The vintage look can be finished with a NATO strap. Montblanc has been working together with Julien Faure, a French company specializing in woven straps since 1864, to create the NATO strap.     The collaboration with Julien Faure is a logical choice for Davide Cerrato, Managing Watch Director at Montblanc. Both Houses share the same values: preserving, celebrating and passing on craftsmanship, tradition and know-how. Moreover, they have a rich history and stand for quality, comfort and unique designs.     Julien Faure still works with machines from the 18th century and even has custom made machines so that the traditional methods were not lost, a choice they made in the 1970s as a result of technological innovations in the industry. With the old machines, the company can preserve the richness of the craft and is able to weave with techniques that are no longer possible on new, automatic machines.     The old machines make it possible to design a unique NATO strap for Montblanc. Extra light and flexible, including a blue and white striped design. The woven ribbon becomes a real watch strap by using a specific technique to create two “tunnels” in the strap to which the watch case can be attached.     More on MontBlanc.com The Montblanc 1858 collection is inspired by the heritage of Minerva.

At home with Alexander DiPersia

At home with Alexander DiPersia

Men In New York City with Alexander DiPersia, captured by Kat Irlin.   Who are you  and what is your profession?   It likely says this above somewhere but for the record, I am Alexander DiPersia, called Alexander by some, Alex by others, and AJ since I was a kid and my brother couldn’t pronounce Alexander. I am, according to google, an actor but I am also a writer and in fact most of my time is taken up but what was once my side-gig, art dealing and curation. I collect art passionately (addictively) and fund that by placing art in both private and public collections across the world. It allows me to have an element of control and input that simply sitting back and waiting for meetings and auditions to work out doesn’t. Plus I constantly get to see beautiful things, which is an absolute must to keep me happy and engaged.       How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion?    I think short term we’ve already seen less spending by consumers across all brand price points and obviously a lot less parties and hulabaloo around fashion week’s and shows and who gets to go where and why. I think parts of this will last long term and maybe that’s for the better. Less buying of things we don’t need but think we do because other’s have them, and less FOMO from an exclusive and exclusionary world that everyone gets a peek into via social media. In regards to the general perception of fashion I don’t think too much will change, what’s cool will be cool, as long as we can wear it comfortably while at home binge-ing our favorite tv show ;)     How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?   Like most everyone I’ve been doing a lot of cooking, that’s not new, but I certainly have been doing it more now than ever before. I love thai food and have never tried cooking it, so that has been a fun and very spicey experiment. I also have picked up a love for the bow and arrow. I now spend my afternoons in the backyard pretending I’m a much less talented Robin Hood. From a work perspective, I am working more than ever as we are expected to have our phones on us at all times. I really don’t mind it. It’s nice to keep things moving.      What is in your planning or was in your planning for this year and how will Covid -19 effect that?   Right now I don’t have any plans. I’m not one for plans ever but I am usually on a plane 2/3 times a month nomad style. I most likely would be somewhere else right now if not for Covid, but it’s been quite a relief just staying in one place and being content with that. The first thing I will do when I am allowed to and am comfortable doing so is to go and visit my 7 moth old niece in London. I miss her every second of every day.   What is your daily beauty routine like? And what beauty products you cannot go without?   I truly never thought I’d be asked this question. I’m honored. It has certainly changed a bit during covid as I’m likely not showering as much as I should be. But that will change (I think.) When I shower in the morning (again that has changed) I wash my face with la roche posay facewash and then moisturize with embryollise moisturizer. I found out about both of these during my time on film sets not by trial and error, they were entirely someone else’s idea and the face wash smells nice. At night I wipe my face down with witch hazel which my dad used to use. Simple and clean.     What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it?   The coolest thing I’ve learned, as I said above, is the bow and arrow. I learned it by watching countless youtube videos, practice, and reading Herrigel’s ‘Zen in the art of Archery,’ which is the book credited with introducing Zen to Western audiences. It’s both fun and peaceful and makes me feel a lot cooler than I am. Though it’s not new I’ve really learned to appreciate sunsets and flowers and animals and all that comes with long walks and being upstate. I’m slowly turning into my mother.     Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your resume.   I paint my toe nails. They are currently purple.       What's the first place you'd want to go when it's safe again to travel and go out of our homes and why there?   As I said above I can’t wait to see my niece in London and give her a big squeeze. Second to that it’s seeing my parents and family members and friends I’ve been so distant from. I really just want some hugs. I’d go anywhere and do anything for a nice big hug right now. I really hope those come back soon. I’ll pay. A lot.     What is your favorite song at the moment and why? Do you have a playlist that you would like to share with us?   At the moment my songs and playlists are very classical. Bach’s Goldberg Variations as played by Glenn Gould and the Phantom Thread soundtrack by Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead keep me calm and collected though feeling slightly melancholic. I’m listening to nothing too new or exciting, just things that make me feel comforted and ok with being alone.       What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?   When I wake up, I go straight to the coffee machine, make a pot, then go sit outside and listen to the birds while I read the news and have way too many cups of coffee. It has been tough lately with what’s been going on in my country and across the world. For months the day’s were met by grim covid numbers and now the morning’s are greeted by sad but important images of the anger spreading throughout my country due to the racial inequalities that have existed for far far too long. Those stick with me throughout the day so before bed, I read the news one more time and then I plug my phone in across the room and set my alarm. I put water and a little snack next to my bed as I inevitably wake up at some point in the night needing something sweet. That’s probably an unhelathy habit.     What is your go-to work-out for staying in shape? What does working out mean to you?   This is a tough one. I worked out every single day my entire teenage and adult life; boxing, running, swimming, yoga, everything under the sun. As I’ve gotten older I’ve developed some very bad back problems so my ‘workouts,’ if you can call them that, resemble a form of pilates now. Lots of rubber bands and stretches and very light isometric movements. It’s brutal not really being able to really break a sweat, but life is all about adapting. Working out has always been a means of escape for me, so now I just have to face a lot of things head on. TERRIBLE.     What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far?   My favorite painting, since I was a kid, is Jean-Michel Basquiat’s (untitled) 1981. It is in the collection of Eli and Edith Broad and is in their museum on display in Los Angeles. It’s the painting that first got me interested in art in general, and I had a poster of it on my wall as a child. It shows his focus on anatomy (he was in a car accident as a young guy and became obsessed with the book ‘Gray’s Anatomy’ and mortality), his love for showing both the inside and outside of somene (possibly himself), and it shows both life and death which I think had to do with his fear of dying young which indeed happened at 27 from a heroin overdose. He made so many paintings I love like ‘Defacement’ and that are so important right now, showing that 40 years later the police in America are still brutalizing the Black population. I can’t say either work has directly inspired my work but it has driven me to work hard and keep my head up despite how grim some things may look at times. Basquiat made this painting at 21 and died at 28. A masterpiece as a child and an ending that came way too early. My hope that stems from this is to live a long life and one day create something, anything, that inspires someone else as much as these painthing have inspired me.           INSTAGRAM: @alexanderdipersia In New York City with Alexander DiPersia, captured by Kat Irlin.   Who are you  and what is your profession?   It likely says this above somewhere but for the record, I am Alexander DiPersia, called Alexander by some, Alex by others, and AJ since I was a kid and my brother couldn’t pronounce Alexander.

It shows his focus on anatomy (he was in a car accident as a young guy and became obsessed with the book ‘Gray’s Anatomy’ and mortality), his love for showing both the inside and outside of somene (possibly himself), and it shows both life and death which I think had to do with his fear of dying young which indeed happened at 27 from a heroin overdose. He made so many paintings I love like ‘Defacement’ and that are so important right now, showing that 40 years later the police in America are still brutalizing the Black population. I can’t say either work has directly inspired my work but it has driven me to work hard and keep my head up despite how grim some things may look at times. Basquiat made this painting at 21 and died at 28. A masterpiece as a child and an ending that came way too early. My hope that stems from this is to live a long life and one day create something, anything, that inspires someone else as much as these painthing have inspired me.           INSTAGRAM: @alexanderdipersia
