3:17 minutes of WHY I HATE NEW YORK (only kidding)

But fareal. We get it. We KNOW NEW YORK IS COOL AND ALL.........
The boys from fool's gold put they stank on this record.
Named after the one lady who knew how to rock a cat suit with no hands....
Peep all the cameo's and you'll see why i'm poutin with a grin.

INSA = one man. One name. NO Face.

funny story:

I just so happen to be in the bookstore one day, and managed to pick up a Juxtapoz magazine, and saw this piece of work that i couldn't resist falling in love with. I have got to bring this one over to the south.


"INSA is a fine artist and designer who has established himself from a graffiti background through extensive street level work and gallery shows around the world. Throughout his career, INSA has allowed himself to explore different approaches and outlets for his artistic agenda, including designing signature collections for brands such as Kangol, Kid Robot and Oki-Ni, as well as starting his own heel company ‘INSA Heels’. He has undertaken many private commissions for clients such as Sony and Nike and was recently invited out to Sweden as one of only two British artists to help curate and sculpt the 2008/2009 ICE hotel.

INSA’s canvases and installations are often hyper real, finely crafted creations in which sexual desire and commodity-fetishism merge and contrast. Always with a heavy sense of irony, INSA visually exaggerates the notion of objectification meets commodification with graphically depicted oversized body parts that are suspended in the controlled architectural lines of a sneaker or bold black and white graphic patterns. INSA uses these powerful patterns to play with and distort the spaces where his work is installed to entice the viewer into the ‘fantasy’; a shallow fantasy of materialistic aspiration where sexual objectification is flaunted as a symbol of wealth and success."
