I was so excited when I heard Alex Antetokounmpo was coming to my studio and I was able to get my new print up in time for his coming out party! I really enjoy his work and it is always a treat to see it up on my wall.
But his recent work has been very divisive and controversial. His most recent works are all about the idea of “bad” people in the world. He’s always pushing the idea that there are bad people and good people in any situation. This has obviously been a huge hit with his fans and the world at large. Just yesterday I got a message telling me that he was invited to the party I was throwing for the second week of his tour. I was ecstatic.
I don’t blame alex for what he’s doing, but I’m not sure I buy into it entirely. Just because bad people exist in a given situation doesn’t mean they have to be the person in charge of everything that happens in that situation. In my opinion, he’s simply writing in a very broad, general way, and his focus on bad people in the world is more of a commentary on society and society’s place in the world than anything else.
I think alex is essentially saying that society is so filled with bad people that it is difficult to get a handle on what they are truly doing. Im not sure if that is accurate, but I like the idea. In that same article, he talks about all the issues he wants to tackle in the future. I find that interesting.
I can’t think of a single person who isn’t aware of the problems with society, or just can’t see that it’s a problem. I also find it interesting that he seems to be trying to start a conversation but seems to be getting a little lazy in the process, probably because of the fact that he’s not really one to question things.
I see this idea being discussed in the media a lot. I dont know anyone who is in a position to actually debate it. I guess he wants to start a discussion about the problems in society but hes not really even close to being one to really start a conversation.
I think its a shame, because I really enjoy talking about this stuff, and I think at some point it will be a good thing to discuss. The problem is that he seems to be approaching the conversation in a rather passive manner. For this to work I think there needs to be more of a challenge or an opportunity to talk about something. At the moment I can see this approach being very limiting and restrictive.
This is actually a pretty good example of that, because there are actually two different aspects to Antetokounmpo’s personality. The first being the way he talks. He is very conversational. The second being his personality. He is very extroverted, which is good and bad. He is very introverted, which is great and bad.
The first aspect is the fact that he can do this. He can talk to people, he can talk to other people, he can talk to other people who are very nice, and he can talk to people who are very obnoxious, or people who are very bad and bad. He can really, really talk to people but talk to them, but he can also talk to people who are very nice, and people who are very bad and bad.
