Name: D’Angelo Andrews “Lo”
Craft(s): Self-Proclaimed Photographer
- When did you realize you were interested in art?
I’ve been interested in photography since the age of 15.
- How do you find beauty in a ugly world?
My studies in photography have shaped that mindset, I’ve learned that depending on the lighting and angle at which you view something it can be made to seem dynamic even if it’s something as mundane as an empty can on the street. In my opinion everything that exists has the potential to be “beautiful” you just have to look for it and in some instances the beauty of something will be widely agreed on and some instances it wont.
- What Influences you and where do you get your inspiration?
My desire to be and do better is what I would say influences me, as far as my inspiration it comes from all over. I draw inspiration from other artists, nature, ordinary people, etc.
4. Who is one person you dream of shooting with?
Cocaine Lorraine (@lorraine_sd) as a model and Shamayim (@shamayim) as a photographer.
- Who are your top 5 favorite artists?
I don’t really have a top 5, I try not to rank the artists who I like and there are so many talented artists. Side note I try to keep my admiration to peoples art and not them if I don’t know them personally.
- What differentiates you from different artist?
In my opinion all artists are different but my willingness to create is what helps me stand out. I don’t constrict myself with budgets or who stands to gain from the creation of the work and things of that nature.
- What impact do you wish to leave with your art?
I just hope to inspire someone to start looking at life from more than one angle.
