COLLECTION OF YORUBA ORISHAS

Not to diss on European mythologies but can we seriously have some fuckin’ recognition that there are religions and mythologies that are not Greek or Norse. Why the fuck did I learn about the Greeks 6 times but we never fucking talked about Africa or even really the mythologies and beliefs of native peoples? 

(Pssst from what group are these deities from?)

The Yoruba of western Africa.

SHINTARO OHATA

Born in Hiroshima, 1975.
Shintaro Ohata is an artist who depicts little things in everyday life like scenes of a movie and captures all sorts of light in his work with a unique touch: convenience stores at night, city roads on rainy day and fast-food shops at dawn etc. His paintings show us ordinary sceneries as dramas. He is also known for his characteristic style; placing sculptures in front of paintings, and shows them as one work, a combination of 2-D and 3-D world.

Japanese artist Shintaro Ohata (previously) currently has two new sculptural paintings on view at Mizuma Gallery in Singapore. Ohata places vibrantly painted figurative sculptures in the foreground of similarly styled paintings that when viewed directly appear to be a single artwork. In some sense it appears as though the figures have broken free from the canvas. These artworks, along with several of his other paintings, join works by Yoddogawa Technique, Enpei Ito, Osamu Watanabe, and Akira Yoshida, for the Sweet Paradox show that runs through August 10th

If I date you,

I see myself marrying you.

I see myself building with you.

I see myself growing with you.

I don’t date just to pass time.

I’m dating you because I see potential in you.

You can be in a relationship for two years and feel nothing; you can be in a relationship for 2 months and feel everything. Time is not a measure of quality; of infatuation, or of love.

Why didn’t I learn to treat everything like it was the last time. My greatest regret was how much I believed in the future.

- Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (via quotethat)

There is no shame in being hungry for another person. There is no shame in wanting very much to share your life with somebody.

- Augusten Burroughs (via quotethat)

I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.

- Lisa Kleypas, Blue-Eyed Devil (via quotethat)

I am me.

I am me.

I have small squinty eyes
I have a pale freckled face
I have light colored eyebrows
I have bent middle toes
I have a hitch hikers thumb
I have brownish blonde hair
It’s cream colored and hard to describe.
I have dark blueish grey eyes
They aren’t very striking
I have boney fingers
I have bigger boobs now
I’m not used to them
I have a very thin waist
I have bigger thighs now
I have veiny legs
They are also pale
I tried to tan, but it doesn’t work
I’m covered in freckles
I have freckled ears
And fingers
And toes
And legs
And arms
They are everywhere
I think they make me look dirty
But I think I like them
My teeth are almost straight
They are also almost white
My cuticles are always overgrown
My nails are brittle
My age doesn’t show
Except under my eyes
My pants don’t fit anymore
My voice is high pitched
I try to deepen it
My hair grows slowly
It’s long but not long enough
My hips are boney
I have rough soles on my feet
I like to walk barefoot
I like to sit outside
I have bad breath sometimes
I drink soda almost everyday
And coffee
And sometimes I smoke
I don’t know why
I like to wear dresses sometimes
And most times I don’t
But I still do
But not right now
I can act girly
But I don’t like myself when I do
I can act distant
But I don’t like myself when I do
I have tattoos
I love almost all of them
I like to be naked
But I feel too vulnerable
I like to wear clothes
But I feel too restricted
I have dark under eye circles
And I always look sick
I am not very confident
But I usually do my own thing
I am rather skinny
I like bright colors
I like being alone
And I also hate it
I have depression
And I also hate that
I get overly excited sometimes
And then I always feel out of place
I am too loud most of the time
And too quiet the rest of the time
I keep liking new foods
And keep hating others
I don’t like my job
I don’t like my family that much either
I love to read
But I hardly find a good book
I love to work with my hands
I also like to do nothing
But then I feel anxious
I have anxiety
And I hate that
I have light eye lashes
But I wish they were lighter
I have light hair
But I wish it were lighter
I use Chapstick everyday
I like cold foods
Or lukewarm foods
I like pink
And red
And blue
And basically all the bright colors
I like soft music
I like deep and sad lyrics
But I also like hard music
And deep and angry lyrics
I cry more often
I cry a lot
I have a baby face
I do not have an eating disorder
I like cute things
They make me smile
And I want to smile more
I am over all not happy
I can be happy sometimes
I am broken
But I don’t want to be fixed
I am gay
I am in love with a woman
I am me
I want to be accepted
I am me
And I want to accept myself.
