"Will you mention my mom?" asks the 6-foot-and-1-inch tall Asif Farooq with a broad smile. He wears a black baseball cap on the back of his head, the lip pointing skyward at an angle, adding even more height to his massive build. Farooq, 33, exudes a playful energy, which belies his intimidating frame, not to mention word "Crazy" tattooed in cursive on the right side of his neck. It's no wonder when he walks down the stairs in the Design District building housing Primary Projects' gallery space, carrying a scale-sized model Tommy Gun made of thick cardboard, that he startles a woman walking around a corner. Carrying a cup of coffee and a notebook, she freezes in her tracks for a second. In a sincere, humble voice, Farooq says, "Excuse me, ma'am" and walks on, hand on the trigger of the old-time submachine gun made famous by Great Depression-era gangsters.
