This monthly update can feature artists from different medias whether it be sketch artists, digital, clothing, or the fine arts.
This months artist is no other than Prassumo who hails from Detroit, MI.
Prassumo was kind enough to answers some questions about his background and how he’s come to be where he is.
DS: “Okay well, let’s get into this. Michael, also known as “Prassumo”, where did you first get your start?”
P: “Actually, I was inspired from a XXL magazine about Nigo and Bathing Ape back in 2006. *laughs* Yes I know, I’m old.”
DS: “Nigo’s a good choice. The guy completely changed the way clothing brands, brand themselves.”
P: “From then on I knew what I wanted to do. I never knew it was called street wear but the name Prassumo came from my sister as a joke. The original name was “Rassumo”. Then in 2009, I met up with a good friend named Christopher Horstman. He saw my book and told me to do it… It was only dreams didn’t know how to do it.”
DS: “You’re still very young, but it seems you know what you want to do which is tough for young artists. A lot of them don’t seem to have an intuition of what they want to do as a whole.”
DS: “Lemme ask you, where do you get your style from?”
P: “I get my style from all styles of street wear. I knew that I didn’t want my brand to be stuck in one specific style. When you think that’s it, I switch it up and I usually do five hours of research on the internet for flips aka “spoofs” and high end fashion. I tend to listen to Curren$y, Trap Music, Jay-Z , Kanye West and Michael Franks.”
DS: “That’s awesome, everyone has their methods etc. Tell me, who are your three favorite artists and how do they inspire your work.”
P: “Nigo and Kaws for the art, Kanye for the thinking and Roy Lichtenstein for the emotions and drawing. He had the best pop art in my opinion. Andy Warhol was over rated to me.”
DS: “Yeah, Kaws especially. His lines are incredibly clean and his process has clearly been nailed down. Drawing upon those guys, What is your favorite artistic era and why?”
P: “The 50’s. The Disney cartoon style was dope to me and I use it with 90’s blend of anime to create what I do.”
DS: “Great era, lots of technical advances happening and by the way, that reminds me. Have you read “The Illusion of Life” the animators bible by Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas? If not, it’s a great read.”
P: “Nope not gonna lie but give me a link and I will purchase it.”
DS: “Absolutely. It’s written by two of Disney’s old nine men the original animators. That brings me to your next question. At what age did you realize you had a talent? Did you study anywhere and if not, why?”
P: “Really didn’t know. I’m honestly just a kid who learns from scratch and I never had schools to teach me. It was who can draw the best goku or pooh and you compete with your fellow classmates in class for fun. Around 10 I realized I could draw when I sketched Super Sayin Trunks from the tv.”
DS: “Yeah absolutely understand. I myself didn’t know what I was going to do until my senior year. Last question, If you had an opportunity to have worked with another artist throughout any historical era, who would it have been?”
P: “Shhhhhiiit *laughs* umm damn I’m gonna have to say I don’t know. It’s only because I learn so much from other great artists. I can’t put my finger on one artist but fuck, just for the readers it has to be Rob Lichtenstein. Only because I’m on my pop art thing right now.”
DS: “He had a huge impact on a lot of people. Especially comic book people. Well I want to thank you Prassumo for taking the time out of your busy schedule to do this interview. Hope everything turns out great for you and your work.”
P: “No problem, always appreciate it.”coming soon re-up pack!
will be avaliable friday street hustler pack 1
