Q & A
1. You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What colour would you be and why?
I would be a mix of melted-down crayons, so you are able to see the colours individually. Why melted crayons? I am an individual with a mix of many different talents, experiences and a mix of different nationalities.
Otherwise, I would be the colour yellow. Yellow, because it is awesome, it makes me feel good and it reminds me of the sun and canola.
2. What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be a person who has a ton of free time, does what he wants and empowers others to do good things. ...Plus be rich!
3. What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?
When I am alone in my car that is when I do most of my free styling. When I am driving I will rhyme an invented story about the people I see on the street. I will rap about their day and where they come from. If I see a store, I will rap about the people walking into the building about their experience and the items they will see.
4. Who would win a fight between Spiderman and Batman?
Spiderman, because Spiderman has actual powers, no gimmicks, and has spidey senses.
5. What do you look forward to most while working with Antyx Community Arts?
I look forward most to meeting with people that I am going to be working with, in this case, the youth. I am also excited about experiencing different forms of art, outside of what I am use to. Lastly, being surrounded by other artists who experience and see things differently.
Dwight Farahat is the Antyx Community Arts Practicum Student for Spring/Summer 2016 semester. Look forward to seeing the work and contributions you shall bring to the team!
