Over the years, I’ve often been asked about City City, and recently I went over to this elusive artist’s studio to learn more about his process. While I photographed him working on one of his large-scale pieces—as well as our collaboration for the Murder Lounge’s Downtown Denim show—we talked about his perspective and the origins of City Kitty.

Ta’kaiya Blaney
Lmnopi’s portrait of Ta’kaiya Blaney —a 13 year old activist and singer from the Sliammon First Nation, who works to protect indigenous lands worldwide from unsustainable development. "I feel that as humans, as participants and beings that walk upon this earth, it is our responsibility to help the earth. We all need to take steps towards a clean and healthy future regarding animals, humans, plants, and the various ecosystems. Our earth is our home. Over the past four years I’ve been an advocate for providing better qualities of living in Indigenous First Nations territories, and ending the oppression, racism, and corruption we face from our government and within our community." —Ta’kaiya Blaney

Poems While You Wait
"I sit in public with a 1917 Corona typewriter and a sign that reads, "Poems about anyone or anything". People come and make their request and I compose a poem for them. I then sign and take a photo of the poem and the poemee keeps the hard copy in exchange for a donation. I call this process of writing "Poeming", and have poemed well over 4,000 poems over the past twelve years. The title of each poem reflects the subject requested." - Poems While You Wait in Union Square, NYC.
