Please introduce yourself:

Hi, I’m Adam Villanueva. I am from Highland Park, Los Angeles California. I started doing art for my band SEASONS (see video at the end)  in 2006 and over the years it got better and I started making money off of it. Now I make art, stickers and shirts for other bands. I had a few successful art shows as well, you can check out my etsy shop where I sell some of my paintings and jewelry.

What is your creative process? Does your art tell a story?

My paintings are influenced by camping trips but with a space vibe to it. I like using pyramids and other shapes to create a optical illusion. My cat painting tells a story of house cats that party when the owners are gone. You can see them drinking, dancing and swimming in the after hours.

Who are some of your musical influences?

Beatles, Tame Impala, John Coltrane, Chet Baker, Anchorsong, Charles Bradley, Black Moth, Super Rainbow, and many more.

Any secret artist you embarrassed to say you enjoy?

Not that I can think of right now.

Do you have any pre-show/recording rituals?

I like to make videos or drawings related to the event the day of to help promote that show. Does that count?

Has politics changed your creativity?

Yes and no. I have been wanting to do a political painting but I haven’t. Maybe I’ll do a stop motion of Trump’s head launching missiles out of his mouth into his ass. I don’t know yet.

Mother of 3, this lady does it all. Free lance vintage hairstylist and makeup artist currently working from San Diego, CA. Born and raised in LA, Danie is the epitome of cool. She brings together rockabilly, vintage styles that make her styled photo shoots and artwork one of a kind. Did I mention she is my older sister? Of course I had to kick it off with this lovely lady. She has always been my style icon growing up and I attribute my eclectic style to her.
