“Being right, proving a point, or confronting someone who has hurt me doesn’t matter me to very much. I’d so much rather let them take their shots at me and regret it later in their own lives. As trite as that sounds, I try to be a lady about things. Some people love to walk up to you, say something bratty, and walk away before you can respond. I’m not naming names. There are girls out there who like doing that to other girls.”
Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace - SXSW 2014
"Famous for his vibrant reinterpretations of classical portraits featuring African-American men, New York-based painter Kehinde Wiley has turned the practice of portraiture on its head and in the process has taken the art world by storm.
Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace follows the artist as he steps out of his comfort zone to create a series of paintings of women for the first time. Kehinde casts his models on the streets of New York and then enlists Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy to create couture gowns for each woman. The film traces the artist’s process from concept to canvas as he reveals to us another side of black femininity.”

Nico was amazing in the film, and when they kept him alive just that bit longer at the end
Oh God I hoped they were going to change his death
I hoped he would live
I hoped he would get her kiss
I hoped he would tell her he loved her and she would steal him from Death
They killed him anyway
I WAS SO MAD! -_-!
