The words and phrases in each background represent emotional feelings you might get when you feel alone in the world and no one around understands you. As far as the club kids go they were a type of people who felt those emotions their whole lives. Their families always misunderstood them, as well as the people around them leading to the use of hard drugs like meth and heroin. Both the club kids and the phrases in the backgrounds connect.
I am fascinated with club kid culture and styles. The fashion is very colorful, exciting and artistic. This whole project has inspired me to one day organize a club kid photo shoot. Like I always say, color is a very important element in my work and the club kids are a great type of inspiration for that.
One of the main focuses in my work these days is to express my emotions, which is where the words and phrases come from representing how I feel about life in general. We all know that the club kids had those same feelings too.
I can say on one level that I was once a club kid myself but then I pulled my act together and grew up. But there are still times when I wish I can still go out and have some wild and crazy fun like they did. I used to have an amazing sense of fashion until I entered the adult world and had to clean up my appearance a bit in order to succeed. But it’s great to know that my art will always be a way for me to stay young at heart.
