ANGEL DE GARCIA, Pricer in the Warehouse
What is this look?
I have led a very nomadic existence for some 52 years. I come from an orphanage upstate, by way of an orphanage on Staten Island. I’m inner city, I’m South Bronx, I am from the early hip-hop generation. It’s part of me, and I am a universal spiritual machine.

But you haven’t told me about your look.
All of the things that exist in this city, all of the vibrations have caused in me an external transformation and a kind of look that I don’t even recognize on a conscious level. I am the city. I am a representation of its Mad Max aura.
