DavidCamarenaxYKInterview

David Camarena is an integral part of the Bay Area’s rising art and music revival, adding his name to a strew of others who are attaining well deserved successes for their talents. Within the Bay Area, he’s well known for working closely as the HBK Gang’s in-house videographer, documenting a number of tours and bringing visuals to life for the likes of IAMSU!, P-Lo, Kool John and the rest who trust the talented youth to execute his vision. Camarena’s work takes us on a journey down the rabbit hole, utilizing a psychedelic kalleidoscope of fast paced, expertly executed cuts, electricying colors, and impactful b-roll. David’s style manages to capture the attention of the current generation, while simultaneously nodding to the classic era of film through implementing heavy grain and a concise cinematic style in his visuals, while working with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Berner, IAMSU!, and numerous others. The sky is the limit for the young talent, whose masterful work continues to capture the eyes of more and more celebrated musicians, from Travi$ Scott, to The Weekend, and many more to come.

Below check out an interview we conducted with David about developing his videography, rolling on tour with Wiz Khalifa, and his creative process. You can catch David in our group art show Parallels this Thursday in San Francisco, where he’ll be debuting a film as well as showing some photos alongside other talented folks which you can read about here. Be sure to keep up with Camarena via his personal site, Instagram or Twitter, and we’ll see you Thursday at Parallels!

RewinaBeshuexYKInterview

Hailing from San Francisco, Rewina Beshue is an emerging multifaceted artist who touches in the field of sound production, digital media to painting and then some. Often lending her talents as model for her friends, she isn’t defined by her looks, but her ability to tap into her imagination and not be limited to any certain medium. Radiant color palettes dominate the foreground of Rewina’s work, definitively drawing the eye into enthralling pieces from the SF youth. We’re excited to see Rewina’s work develop and span across the number of mediums that she’s engaging in, the S.F. native previously having lent a hand to some work of ours as well.

Below is an interview by Carina Moreno, as she talks with Rewina about her upbringing as an African American woman, her roots as an artist and more. You can catch Rewina and Carina alongside the other talented artists at our second group art show, ‘Parallels’ (purchase pre-sales to Parallels here). Be sure to keep up with the San Francisco native via Instagram

RichieMoonxYKInterview

Richie Moon is a San Diego based graphic artist spearheading a wave of creative individuals emerging from the So Cal city alongside fellow SUAV representatives like emcee RossiRock. Richie’s Mexican roots shine through his work, for example his iPhone wallpaper inspired by an array of familiar Mexican candies, pieces depicting enchiladas, cacti and an array of other works that come together in a cornucopia of color. His cartoon-like style masters the art of simplicity without venturing too far into the realm of minimalism, strong lines and splashes of vibrant colors making for some definitive and memorable work.

Check out an interview with Richie Moon below, where he converses with frequent YK contributor Veeejzilla about his work and the San Diego scene. You can catch Richie and Veeej in our upcoming art show Parallels on June 18th in San Francisco (get your tickets here) alongside a number of other ill artists. This is one you don’t want to miss out on, stay in touch with Richie Moon via his personal site or outlets like IG and Twitter.

BeatriceSeifertxYKInterview

Beatrice Seifert, often referred to as Sula by friends, is an individual with a heavy arsenal of talents ranging from illustration to painting to photography and design, both versatile and highly deliberate in her expression. An artist may search years reaching for a style of their own, and in looking at Beatrice’s work, it’s almost instantly recognizable as her own, near flawless in her execution. She has a penchant for capturing genuine moments from behind the lens, and molds meticulously detailed works with her painting and illustration. In the flesh, Beatrice radiates nothing but positivity, and that light-hearted sense in which she carries herself finds its way into her work which is consistently bright and clean cut.

Below is an interview with Beatrice conducted by Gabriela Diaz, both of these two will appear in an upcoming group art show we’re putting together on June 18th in San Francisco. We’ll be releasing more details soon via our social media outlets (Twitter & IG), or if you’re a regular reader of the site you’re sure to catch wind.
