Kigetsu Yen: So Art House, Tell me a little about yourself?
How did you get into creating art?
ARTHOUSE: Since kindergarten I’ve always had a strong calling to the arts in multiple avenues. That’s why I pride myself on being a jack of all trades. Being from Brooklyn NYC our school systems have mandatory art and music classes that teach what in the south is advanced music theory so I was musically trained by middle school and I used to also be in a marching band so that help me refine my musical skills but it’s in middle school in NYC that I learned the basics of video editing.
ARTHOUSE: No matter what as a kid I wanted to be in arts whether it be me being an actor, photographer, DJ, videographer or a full-blown musician. I was in NYC from 97-10 so when I moved from NYC to NC I got into the first studio environment I’ve been around ever and made my SoundCloud in 2012 and I was recording straight off my phone to beats I had playing in the background.
ARTHOUSE: @KamiFonzo is who I have my first real track with because he’s the one that got me into the studio and we’ve been fam ever since. He lived w me and we roommates rn.
ARTHOUSE: I started getting into videography because my friends needed their videos shot and with me directing plays in theater class I took up the roll to edit/film a majority of my music videos and other videos from #SCARECROW6.
Kigetsu Yen: What inspires you to create on a day to day basis?
ARTHOUSE: Everyday experiences, I intake a lot of different forms of media and combine them together to get what I have as an end product. Anime, Music, Old Movies. There’s a new generation every four years or so and with me having extensive knowledge of the past like the 40s and up media wise I have a wide range of things I draw influence from.
Kigetsu Yen: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received as an artist?
And how has that effected your artsy?
ARTHOUSE: I can’t say it’s just one piece of advice that just is the best, but I’ve received a lot of good advice in the realms of a work ethic from people like Cole Bennett and nessely. They really talked to me about how much work they actually have to do within a certain time frame and that really helped me comprehend the severity of a solid work ethic. I also opened up for @idkjeffery & @XavierWulf and in speaking to them in an undisclosed area I asked Jeffery as an up and coming photographer what’s some tips and he told me just be original. Do shit other niggas haven’t because that’s how he did it. So I went on Tumblr analyzed the photography in 35mm which is what I specialize in and I went from there to start taking pictures and getting pictures of me taken orchestrated how I wanted it to look.
Kigetsu Yen: What projects are you working on now?
ARTHOUSE: I’m currently diving into a 35mm binge of photography that will be released as prints. Visually I have two videos I’m gonna drop as an extended film very soon and on a note of music I’m chainsaw juggling 3/4 projects rn that could drop at the flick of a switch. When it comes to music I try to remain as progressive as possible working with new and up and coming artists & producers while also working tightly with my collective #SCARECROW6 which includes myself @KamiFonzo @Diplorian @CharlieMQuiros @MVRXXN @PLUSMXRC & more. My next big visual piece should be around December. I was born in the winter and since it’s my favorite season I like to jam pack it with as much of my art as possible.
Kigetsu Yen: Any final thoughts? Now that we’re coming towards the end of the interview.
ARTHOUSE: Yo yo yo last words shout out Emotionull and you for having me. Shout out scarecrow6, shouts out my weed man without him i definitely wouldn’t be doing any of this shit as peacefully as I do. And lastly but certainly not least BE YOURSELF. Originality is a bitch to come by nowadays but when I hear something new I love it so please remember that. I appreciate y’all for having me. It’s 9:A.M. and I’m plotting on my next figurine cop today, might be Vegito. But until next time it’s ART HOUSE, EAT YA HEART OUT.
Kigetsu Yen: Awesome man I have to say I really enjoyed getting more insight on your background.
Your hard work and dedication will pay off, you have a solid work ethic and I’m pretty sure that other artist will learn a lot from you.
ARTHOUSE: Thanks, yo I really appreciate having the ability to chop it up with you mane. Y’all really have a great blog and I hope we get to speak later.
