MODELS REFLECT ISOLATION: NICK KILLIAN

NICK KILLIAN, 20, Harlem, NY at New York Models

reflecting isolation

 

 

 

 

 

F WORD: What are your top 5 interests?
NICK KILLIAN:
My top 5 interests include; music, art (painting, drawing etc...), skateboarding, writing, and cooking. 

 

 

F WORD: How have you been dealing with the whole isolation thing?
NICK KILLIAN:
I have been dealing quite well with isolation, taking advantage of free time by focusing on my art. While it is hard being stuck far from loved ones, I find creating art in any form to be a nice distraction.

 

 

F WORD: What have you been doing to occupy your time and mind?
NICK KILLIAN:
I have mostly been focusing on painting during isolation, a medium I seldom use. I dream of one day being able to make a career out of my art, and this isolation period is the perfect time to hone my craft. 

 

 

 

 

F WORD: How are you feeling about the COVID-19 pandemic?
NICK KILLIAN:
The COVID-19 pandemic is unfortunate and scary, especially living in New York. 

 

 

F WORD: What are your thoughts on how your government and the world are dealing with it?
NICK KILLIAN:
I feel like we are slowly taking steps in the right direction in regards to dealing with the virus outbreak, with ideas like stimulus packages and social distancing. While I feel like the pandemic is grossly distorted through the media, I think as a community we can still do our part and stay home at the very least. 

 

 

F WORD: The best thing you’ve been able to do since isolation:
NICK KILLIAN:
Since being in isolation, the best thing I’ve been able to do is to work on clothes. I took a stab at painting on a few pairs of pants, something I have always wanted to do, and actually ended up really enjoying the process! 

 

 

 

 

F WORD: What do you miss the most right now (due to isolation)?  
NICK KILLIAN:
The thing I miss most right now is skateboarding. I’ve only been able to skate a few times since I moved out to the city, but I am looking forward to exploring the streets and meeting other skaters once this is all over.

 

 

F WORD: What would be your perfect soundtrack for this time?
NICK KILLIAN:
My perfect soundtrack includes a lot of funk/ soul and old R&B music, I love to create to old groovy soulful tunes.

 

 

 

F WORD: Can you suggest a movie/series/or book we should check out during isolation? 
NICK KILLIAN:
I don’t watch too much TV/movies at all, but I always recommend the original Frankenstein book by Mary Shelley. 

 

 

F WORD: A hopeful statement to encourage others:
NICK KILLIAN:
This is the perfect time to create! Try out all the things you’ve been putting off. Record that song, paint that picture, whatever it is you like to do, now is the time! 

 

 

F WORD: Favourite f-word:
NICK KILLIAN:
Free.
