Interview with AGENT X







q)Please introduce yourself and tell us something about yourself and
your background.

a)First thank you so much and I love the magazine!! My name is Agent X and I am a visual artist living in Vancouver.

q) Talk about your art.

a)My artwork is mostly experimental, multimedia collages, paintings, and 2D artwork. I describe it as ‘Pop Art with thought,’ I try to juxtaposes pop culture, technology, fashion, music, politics, and race in visually complex amalgamations expressing the anxieties of the global, post-modern world and the dark side of consumerist, media-obsessed culture. My artwork occupies a unique intersection between the aesthetics and philosophy of Futurism, the social critique of the Dada movement, and contemporary artistic movements ranging from Pop Art to Superflat.

q) What’s the central theme of your work?

a)Mostly futurism and Pop Art with thought. I love the medium of collage because I can do anything and any topic. I try to do themes that are timeless and not over used. I like it fresh. Also I like to communicate a high level of skill in the artwork. It also depends on how I feel and what statement I want to make or not. I will make pieces like "Annabel Levels" or "Ice Cream" as they are like my Norman Rockwell type of artworks or something like "Lawrence Steele Schlesinger and 2x dimebags" with a Sim card, dimebags,watercolor,oil, and magazine clippings. I never make the same thing twice. Always spontaneous with extreme execution.

q) your most beautiful dream

a)Making art & music in a world with no war or poverty.

q) your worst nightmare
