Samira Dezaki

Having started listening to Tech N9ne at the age of thirteen, what Samira Dezaki values most in her music is technique. You won’t be able to keep up with her back-to-back rhyming, double-and triple time flows, complex well-thought-out rhyme schemes, and on-point aggressive delivery. Don’t let her “upcoming rapper” status fool you. No matter how cloudy last night’s memory gets the next day, you’ll remember Samira Dezaki. She accurately describes her performance in her lyric, ”In my shows you get hyped – It’s less clothes, and more rhymes”.Not only does she aim to create killer flows, Samira Dezaki is also an exotic pole dancer, lowkey contortionist and starts twerking every chance she gets.

Have you always wanted to be an artist?
I always wanted to do my own thing, yes. I’ve never had the desire to fit in, especially not in today’s society and what is considered wrong or right. I love being in my own little bubble and just writing my songs.

What inspires you?
Anything can. This world is full of cool things and people.

Could you describe your creative process to our readers?
Very chaotic. My mind is all over the place.

If you could describe your aesthetic in three words, what would they be?
real, different, hard

What kind of an impact do you want to make with your art?
Honestly I’m just doing this for myself, I want to one day be someone my 8-year old self would admire. I hope to inspire all the other “weird kids” and misfits to live their truth as well.

How do you see the primary role of an artist in today’s society?

Making people feel things. And in a way, helping people escape reality.

What makes you happy?
I think this is the hardest question of them all, wow… honestly I think I’m just unhappy all the time

What are you working on right now? Is there a project you are currently obsessed with?
Reinventing myself and leaving my past behind.

What are your plans for the future? Where would you want your career to be in 10 years?
You’ll see. You’ll all see.

Who are some of your favorite artists?
Anyone who’s being real and authentic in their own little crazy way. I loved Lady Gaga as a child. Nowadays some artists I really look up to are people like Doja Cat or Scarlxrd. And I have a lot of respect for people who really perfected their craft and you can really hear that in their voice and lyrics. Who I listen to most is probably Ace Hood at the moment.

What advice would you give to young artists starting out?
don’t overthink things at the beginning. just keep creating until you find yourself. the rest will follow!

Hana Kuchlerova

The borderline between fiction and reality blurs in the picturesque works of Hana Kuchlerova. Garments, boxes, chocolate bars, found objects, as well as carefully arranged doll furniture, are elevated to a pictorial object and reproduced in front of a color-reduced background, which is graduated in a few nuances and which elevates the representation into fictionality and timelessness. The artist herself says about her approach: I try to activate familiar and therefore overlooked things in their alien appearance. In her works, Hana Kuchlerova plays with subjects and shadows of the subjects and above all wants to enhance the appearance of the pictorial objects in a picturesque way. Irregularities are deliberately set, because it is not about the exact representation of reality, but about showing their own reality.

Hana Kuchlerova
Brooch – Robin Shelton

What kind of an impact do you want to make with your art?
I just want to paint… to show my impressions of life.

How do you see the primary role of an artist in today’s society?
I do not know what role an artist has in today’s society. It depends always on the society.
But I know that an artist should not play an artist.

What makes you happy?
First you have to define happiness…
