what does a typical day in your life look like?
ha! i just had a baby so it’s all him. he’s super cool and very exciting so my day is changing nappies and trying to figure out how to get anything creative done...
on your bookshelf?
i should read more but never have the time… i did just listen to the audio of the beastie boys’ new book. i look at a lot of art books, my mum just brought me the book from the ‘japan supernatural’ show at the nsw gallery.
on your tv screen?
‘watchmen’ was dope and i’m mostly through ‘the outsider’ with ben mendelsohn - pretty creepy. my favourite show is ‘jeopardy’.
playing on repeat?
so much new music, but artists I’ve loved over the past few months are 070 shake, royce da 5’9”, moses sumney, burna boy, and saint jhn.
what are some of your go-to spots to eat, drink and get inspired in nyc?
i always try and see the galleries in chelsea and the upper east side as well as MOMA. it’s a great day when i can get to the bronx and see my people in hunts point. i’ve lived in greenpoint for ten years now, so the waterfront has always been a place i can walk to and reset a little.
for food and drink – café mogador in williamsburg is our favourite breakfast spot, vamos al tequila in greenpoint is the best for mexican, but if you want real authenticity in any type of food, you have to go to queens.
what’s next on the agenda for you?
i’m part of a group show in east hampton that i’m very excited about, more details to come!
