Rafael Theodore Melendez

It was a hot day at the end of May in NYC where we met in his East Village apartment. A five floor walkup that acts as half apartment/ half adjunct art studio to the one that he has in Brooklyn, its a space you would expect an artist to live. The place is covered with his artworks, some featured in this magazine, and every type of paint brush,

color and pencil as far as the eye could see. Commonly referred to the The Academy of Realness, RTM’s apartment acts as a gathering place for discussion on everything from art, fashion, music, parties, people and, well, whatever. He often has these late night gatherings, AKA parties, (and sometimes after-hours) where

individuals from various disciplines discuss, while getting totally obliterated, the ins and outs of their expertise. On any random night one would expect nothing, but good conversation, copious amounts of alcohol and a few unfamiliar faces. Some random questions arose..

No, I fall in love with the wrong people. Why is that? ‘cause they’re the most desperate and needy.


Raphael Theodore Melendez continued.. What makes you angry? Things that are not defined properly.. wrong definitions upset me.

I like to go to the Brooklyn after-hours in Bed-Stuy, I like rooftop bars and in the East Village I would say, it’s a tie between Nowhere Bar and Boiler Room.

If you had 6 months to live, what would you do? For the first three months I would make as much work as possible and then figure out who would take care of Describe yourself in 3 what I am leaving words: behind .

If you had a time machine, knowing the implications of fucking with time, what would you do? I would totally figure out how to control people works and I would reverse it.
