Ive always liked pop art, it fascinates me. It's more than just painting a celebrities face, I love the way how one person or one simple thing calls to the attention of the masses like a trend or a song. In art school I got a sense that the high art world had a little bias against some pop art or pop music etc because most of the time it has no depth or attention to detail that is commendable of creative innovation but for me i kind look beyond the fact and see the beauty in how people from all different walks of life are drawn to something that's popular because it really boils down to our human nature connecting us to things we all are drawn to as the silly little human beings we are. the world is fascinating.
Yes these are the things I think about 🤔💭💡🎨 #popart#andywarhol#warhol#artconcept#conceptual#criticalthinking#artislife#tupac#selena#frida#monalisa#paris#artgallery
“The misconceptions are that Tupac was a rapper, Tupac wasn't political and that Tupac was gangster. But primarily I really think that time will take care of that. I have faith in Tupac's legend. I really believe in the divinity of legends. I believe that God choose Tupac and I believe that no human being can destroy his image, his legend, his life, his music or his work. So in reality I don't care what people say, because I truly believe that God sent him here. He sent him with a mission. He fulfilled his mission and he went back where he came from” 👑♥️🙏🏽👑
I work as a Therapist for my day job. I work with all ages, families, couples, etc. I have a kid who's mostly non-verbal but always has on his Tupac shirt and loves everything that has to do with Pac. Since he's non-verbal he does a lot of individual activities and we've been wrkn on origami. Today he wanted to make a flower but threw a tantrum after I attempted to stand the flower up on a piece of origami paper. After he calmed down he found a piece of paper that looked like "the ground" and told me that we made a "rose that grew from concrete". It's amazing what kids can teach u when they're not getting tests, standards, and rules thrown at them.
I think I’ve said it enough but Kendrick Lamar is my favorite rapper ever and one of the reasons why is his genius pen. A good example of that is his interlude on Drake’s Take Care Buried Alive. Which happens to be the first song I ever heard him on. Production handled by October’s Vey Own producer @ovo40 , this track opens with a instant sense of something bleak & hypnotic. Kendrick comes in with his voice distorted and speaks from what seems to be wits-end or on the verge insanity and trying to confront his problems head on. “If you was in a pine box, I’d surely break the lock. Because you are the death of me”. In my younger years, I’m thinking he’s talking about a girl or someone he loves. Someone who he’d give his life for. But no, he’s speaking about himself. The vices & fame that’s he’s continuing to gather due to success makes him feel as if he’s losing touch with himself. His pure self. Which is just the introduction to the song, throughout the verse Kendrick continues on the same subject but it’s more vivid and in-depth. Explaining his experiences & why he feels this way & along with his daily mindset. You can tell throughout the song Kendrick has tried dealing with this but it seems he’s run out of options. For example, “Mind over matter never worked for my nemesis”. He knows being mentally strong is the key to prevailing with depression but shows that his own mind is his enemy so his efforts are pointless. Yes, this is deep and yes to the avid Kendrick listener it might seem like “average Kendrick” but here’s what gets me and helps me see the genius of it. Kendrick’s not only speaking from his perspective, he’s intentionally speaking from Drake’s also. As if he’s lived his life up until that point through his eyes and has realized that the only way to not fall victim to the way of the world is to bury himself alive.
