It’s that kind of music that only who really understands music and is able to place it into a broader context will appreciate and won’t dismiss as “just some pop commercial stuff”.
I like Grimes because she does everything herself, her music is 100% her brainchild (she also explains it in the video I’m posting below): she’s writer, musician, producer, artist (the illustrations on her album covers are made by her), performer, stylist, marketing expert.
I like Grimes because her style is insane: it is interpreting a character (or actually, characters) and at the same time totally reflecting the craziness in her head. And as complicated as it is, still manages to be completely honest.
I like Grimes because she has an amazing way of interpreting fashion, which is the coolest side of it: play, mix, have fun, make it personal.
I like Grimes simply because she’s cool. Inspiring. Evocative.
That’s why I tried to make her portrait. Once again, reality is much better but hey, I’ve tried.
