Favourite song lyric
Super Nintendo Sega Genesis, when I was dead broke man I couldn’t picture this.
– Juicy, Notorious B.I.G.
I’m inspired by
My family, friends and loved ones. When it comes to artists I’m definitely inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat, David Choe, James Jean, Rembrandt Van Rijn, Albrecht Durer and other painters and fine artists. It’s really hard to find something inspirational today in the field of graphic design, because al ot of things are repeated and recycled. Still there are few people that are always on the top of their game, and they always come up with something new or unexpected.

My Icons past/present
My icon from the past would be Marcus Garvey, if you don’t know him do your homework (check out Philosophy and opinions of Marcus Garvey).
N.Y.S.Y.M.B. Lascony is an historian and documentarian from Congo (Brazzaville), he is a great man, doing a great job and I hope the whole world will get to know him, because his message is very important. And he deserves people’s attention.
Thenublack philosophy/mantra according to Berjo Mouanga
