"I keep trying to forget, but I must remember. And gather the scattered continents of a self, once whole. Before they plant flags and boundary my destiny. Push down the watered mountains that blemish this soiled soul before the valleys of my conscience get the best of me. I'll need a passport just to simply reach the rest of me." - Saul Williams

Comprendre, c’est pardoner.

Artist Lounge: “Waste on Canvas”

The sole use of plastic is something I never thought I would associate with astounding creativity but meet Mbongeni Buthelezi, South Africa’s renowned artist, well known for his distinctive, subjective and inventive art style utilizing plastic and a canvas. Buthelezi has joined the green revolution by using waste to create art by ‘painting’ in recycled plastic.

Buthelezi lived and studied in his hometown Springs, South Africa where he was taught art privately by artist Lucky Moema. He received lessons in perception and sketch from Moema in exchange for bread and tea. Ultimately, Buthelezi made his way to Johannesburg, where he began studying at a community college called Funda.

Buthelezi has used plastic as his main source of material to create his art for the past 22 years. He got his initial inventiveness from a Swiss artist who used plastic as canvas for his artworks. His idea was to use plastic as a canvas as well as paint with the widely available and cheap material. This might leave you to ask: “How does he do that?” He simply cuts the plastics into little pieces and glues the pieces of plastic onto the canvas thus creating surfaces and structures with delicate and altering qualities of various colours.

Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.

My tastes are simple: I am easily satisfied with the best.

—Winston Churchill (via observando)

…because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.

—John Green (via observando)
