What we love
In Something Special, Nzinga explores how his childhood shaped his journey as an artist. Emblematic of his ‘life’s ride’ is an energetically rendered Mercedes Koenig Special. These cars are upgraded over time with enhancements that increase the vehicle’s value and performance. Similarly, Nzinga continues to refine his skills as he expands his practice — akin to the beloved automobile. Titles of popular films such as Crooklyn and Menace II Society appear in the background, referencing pivotal movies that have informed his life. The films’ narratives accentuate each other, building upon a framework like modifications to a Mercedes.
