LA Weekly - Hollywood art figure Anthony Feathers a.k.a. $EX Artiste! passed away on August 11, 2020, the same date he was born 51 year prior (August 11, 1969). Known as the birthday effect, this phenomenon is explained by Hasidic Judaism as a moment “when the person lives his life achieving his fullest potential and completes his mission on earth in the most perfect way possible.”

He was very proud of his Pawnee/Cherokee heritage, all the while fighting against homophobia and forced Jehovah’s Witnesses within his community.
