FEATURED INTERVIEW WITH L.A ARTIST SAND
Artwork: Sand x Mandoe MAK K4P for Artprimo.com / Belton Molotow Aerosol Paints
Los Angeles based street artist "SAND ONER" has blessed us with everything from walls, clothing, trucks, to food stands, from L.A. to the MIA, with her colorful and stylized "CHOLAS."
Now Ihlet gets blessed as we sit down and talk with the confident and talented artist about L.A., her artwork, and the confident youn women of today. Enjoy!
There's a lot of spirit in your work.The girls you paint seem to have a life of their own and tell a story. Is that a fair assessment?
Sure they represent the adventurous woman of today. Willing to break out of the norm and be unique. Independent and with a strong presence. Well-spoken, hood/street smarted and classy just a bit trashy (laughs) what inspired you to get into street art and how did you develop the style you use today? Street art is the most open form of art. Its exposed to the eyes of the streets, everyone can see what your mind projects, everyone is silently watching. I can’t think of any other way to show my art to the world. I been painting for a good time now. Every wall I paint and person I meet teaches me something new,either a skill or a life lesson to live by. I have been blessed to meet so many artist throughout my carreer, that have taught me so much in evolving my cartoons. The positive the negative, it has all shaped my style. I just want to paint girls with big hopeful eyes, luscious dark lashes and juicy pink lips.
