MyShakespeare. Ep76. Edward Hopper's Iconic Painting Nighthawks Explained in a 7-Minute Video Introduction. If any one painting stands for mid-twentieth-century America, Nighthawks does.
In fact, Edward Hopper’s 1942 canvas of four figures in a late-night New York City diner may qualify as the most vivid evocation of that country and time in any form. For Evan Puschak, better known as the video essayist Nerdwriter, the experience of Nighthawks goes well beyond the visual realm. “I’ve always thought of him in a sort of aromatic way,” says Puschak of the artist, “because his paintings evoke the same kinds of feelings and memories that I get from the sense of smell, as if he was channeling directly into my limbic system, excavating moments that were stored deeply away.” Timeout.

According to the law, Banksy is a vandal so he keeps his real name and identity a secret. However, many have argued that his paintings aren’t graffiti but rather works of art to be admired. In 2013, Banksy declared that he was doing a month-long “residency” in New York City. I am an undocumented immigrant, but I'm a better American than those who spat on me because of my race. When I was in the first grade, I learned I wasn’t white.
It was African-American History Month, and my teacher – at one of the many “failing” elementary schools in the Atlanta metro area – instructed us, as part of some poorly-conceived exercise, to raise our hands when she called out our race. I looked around as the black kids raised their hands, then at the timid Japanese twins who sat in the back when Chinese was called out and, when they finally called for the Caucasian kids to raise their hands, my hand vigorously shot up. “You’re not white!” , the kid next to me yelled, and then he started to giggle.
