Colette Miller: An Exclusive Interview with A.I.M.O.

There are a few artists that specialize in painting/drawing wings and you clearly have your own voice in this category. Can you kindly tell our readers how you started your Global Angel Wings Project's journey? The Global Angel Wings Project started in 2012 on the streets of downtown Los Angeles. The idea or vision of huge human sized wings came to me around 2011-2012. While driving through LA and seeing all the big walls, I started imagining wings on them for some reason. Something that would remind us of our higher natures, uplift us and remind us to see the better in humanity. The first couple I created were self authorized, meaning without permission, yet they became popular rather quick

Lala Abaddon: An Exclusive Interview with A.I.M.O.

Lala, I have been in awe of your work for some time now. How long does it take to generally finish one piece? Do you start a few at one time or see one through from start to finish? I work in a few different sizes, but for my most common size (24"x 36’’) it generally takes me 75-150 hours of weaving work on one piece… but there are many different components to my process that happen before and after weaving. I have multiple works in progress at any given moment, but usually I am only weaving one piece at a time… the others works may be in the “planning” stages like photographing my muses or paintings, designing the weave pattern, printing and cutting, or in post production of mounting, fini

Jonathan LeVine: An Exclusive Interview with A.I.M.O.

Jonathan, that eye of yours is spot on. I have been to the gallery countless times and each time I leave feeling excited about the body of work I had just seen. How long does it take you to commit to showing a particular artist? There isn’t a particular time frame or system that I follow. It’s different for every artist. I typically watch an artist for awhile and see their work develop. Sometimes it takes years for me to ask an artist to work with me. Other times it only takes me minutes. Occasionally I will see an artist whose work I am so impressed with and that speaks to me in such an immediate way, I will reach out very quickly and start a conversation. For the artist's out there dying t

Kim Keever: An Exclusive Interview with A.I.M.O.

Art under water. Enough said yet I would like you to tell our audience about how you photograph the paint and ink within the water, please. That is what we are looking at, correct? Yes, that is correct. I literally pour paint and ink into the water and photograph it from outside of a 200 gallon aquarium filled with water. I would imagine you never photograph the same piece twice as it is an ever changing canvas so to speak. It's more like a documentary of a moment in time. Would you agree? That’s a good point. Sometimes I wish I could photograph some of these images again but I can’t, not even close. Once the process begins, there’s no real way to guide or shape any of the forms and colors.

Damien Mitchell: An Exclusive Interview with A.I.M.O.

What is your personal favorite subject matter to paint and why? Letters. First and foremost. Whenever I pick up a can or marker I'm always drawing letters. Lately I've been painting pictures of people and places on walls but first thing in the morning and last thing at night- I'm writing letters. Is there a colour palette you choose to use over others? How do you decide which colours to paint with? Are the pieces designed in full detail before you paint? For a few years I was working mainly in gray scale. Recently I've been getting into the work of Jack Davis' and have started using more exaggerated colour instead of just a splash here and there. We'll see where that goes. I'm usually workin
