Fashion Designer & Artist
What does winning this award mean to you?
Winning is always fun, and it's definitely a huge honor, but it wasn't my goal. What matters most to me is to create more work and always push my limits further and enjoy what I'm doing, regardless of external recognition.
It’s not easy to be a successful creative. What sorts of challenges have you encountered to get where you are today?
I think one of the biggest challenges for me is creating my own path that is unlike the path of any other creative. Defining my own goals and targets and working within multiple disciplines and mediums, and not be bound by each discipline's rules and conventions is not easy!
How did you decide what to enter into Young Guns? Was it a challenge to curate yourself?
I feel like I'm getting better at editing and curating myself over the years, and I think it's often the most important — and hardest — part of a project.
Can you name any past Young Guns winners who you look up to, whose work you admire or are even inspired by?
That's easy: Stefan Segmeister (YG1).
What keeps you going, creatively speaking?
My work is always evolving and expanding, in search of new meanings and ways to express them.
Now that you’re a Young Guns winner, what’s next?
I'm working on a few different art projects and installations that I'm very excited about and looking for a place to exhibit them.
The Young Guns 16 Ceremony & Party takes place on Thursday, November 15 in New York City.
