I’m back with another entry in our Culture365 Q & A series. This week we are featuring multi-disciplinary artist Vincent Fink. He is a graphic artist, web designer, and singer songwriter. He also has experience in screen-printing. Currently, he is focusing his attention on being a T-shirt artist/designer and singer. All of this information and much more can be found on his website

 

 

Vincent Fink shares with us some of his experiences and knowledge in this week’s Culture365 Q & A.

 

Q

What inspired you to be a T-shirt artist?

 

A 

T-shirts speak to me like no other medium of art for its higher sense of representation. You wear it to death, when you really love it, and everyone sees it wherever you go. It can be a message to the world about who you are. I fell into t-shirt design, but I immediately knew this was something I would never stop doing. I found myself looking at the t-shirt as a whole new medium to explore. Also, around the same time, clothing design in general was becoming more of a fine art with the popularization of the all-over prints and more complex design work.

 

Q

What do you feel when you see people wearing your designs?

 

A 

When I see someone who has continuously worn one, wash after wash, and the print is still looking good, and it's still one of their favorites that's probably the one of the best feelings ever.

 

Q

Do you have any famous designers that you would like to work with?


A 

I find myself in line with a lot of what Austin Pardun is up to lately.

 

Q

Other than wearable art, what other mediums do you enjoy working with?

 

A 

I'm big into my acrylic paintings lately, but I am also continuing on the next stage of the Atlas Metamorphosis. It started with an illustration known as “Lord Worm” which came to me in a dream I awoke from in 2010. So I enjoy the dream medium too, you could say. Also I consider my songwriting an extension of my art and will be releasing a CD this year. 

 

 

 

 

Q

Why do you think art is important in today’s society?


A 

Art is always important and relevant, but as for today's society, people really appreciate it because it is one of the best ways we can freely express our ideas, emotions, and also our reasoning. We're coming to a point in time, the telescoping of time, if you will, where things seem to be speeding up. The world, and our country are changing rapidly. Information is at our fingertips, but misinformation is as well. We're adapting, we're becoming. We smile at death. Mankind as a whole changes his view of the world. We are creating the next paradigm shift. Art reminds us that one person can make a difference in many people through the exchange of energy, and find common ground where divisions once stood. Creativity shapes our world everyday for better or worse.

 

Q

What do you wish to accomplish in the future as an artist?


A 

As far as t-shirt designs, that's still my #1, as I have recently begun co-owning a design company called .506 to better serve our freelance customers. I used to only offer design work, but now, we can handle the full process of designing, ordering, printing, shipping, everything. We also are hoping to do well with the 1st Point 506 clothing line possibly launching by the end of the year.

 

With so many ideas, projects and outlets I sometimes feel overwhelmed. I hope to continue growing as a painter and musician as well.

 

I want to keep pushing my designs and ideas as far out into the cosmos as possible, my mind expands as for the universe will go.
