Art hero: Lin cites his brother, the author Tao Lin. “I admire him putting himself out there in such a personal and honest way. This piece by him is titled: financially desperate tree doing a ‘quadruple kickflip’ off a cliff into a 5000+ foot gorge to retain its nike, fritos, and redbull sponsorships. Because he’s my little brother, I can see where his references come from. For example, he seems especially fascinated with hamsters, and we had many pet hamsters growing up."
