It’s not easy to be yourself or else everyone would be doing it.
Timpa’s persona goes against toxic hyper masculinity, especially in the black community. He doesn’t conform to any social constructions – he’s extremely fluid and this allows him to be any character he wants.
I think it is important to expose the general population to individuals who are comfortable with themselves— I find those people to be a great reference point of how the future will look.
I often play with juxtaposition, I feel Timpa naturally contrasts environments he enters, he is never fazed by strangers watching eyes.
Timpa is a local enigma, his essence is free and expressive.
