Who is FKA Twigs?

I have been following FKA Twigs ever since I saw her wide eyed, bobbling head on YouTube. I was simultaneously intrigued and disillusioned. As the months progressed, more videos started popping up, and her seemingly enigmatic persona began to reveal itself. I felt a constant pull between being deeply enthralled but also put off. Who is this person? Why does she dress like a new member of TLC? Wait, she dances too? Huh, she choreographs… directs… produces? Oh, and really- she is dating Robert Pattinson?

Beautiful Death

Painters have been obsessed with death since the very first artist took the very first breath. (Pretty much everyone else has too, but that’s another story.) But while successive generations of Futilists might’ve chosen to speculate on the finality of it all, the more compelling creatives concern themselves with what happens on the way to The Final Frontier. That of course means life. It also means living. And the lovely decay inherent in the day-to-day.

Of that more compelling camp is a cat named Christopher Maslow. Visually-driven and vividly-inclined, he’s a kinda cartographer of the sublime, and he’s especially intent on investigating (and representing) how it affects our lives.

By the end of November, every hotel for miles and miles is booked solid, filled to bursting with tourists who wish they would have used Airbnb instead.
