INTERVIEW: MUSE – Quincy Brown

If there’s one person who can single-handedly change the vibe in the room as soon as they walk in, it’s Quincy Brown. At only 24-years old, Quincy is nothing less than a multi-talented mogul: From acting in the upcoming film Dope (with Shameik Moore, Tony Revolori, Kiersey Clemons, Kimberly Elise, Chanel Iman, Tyga, Blake Anderson, Zoë Kravitz, and A$AP Rocky) to releasing a Pop/R&B album to coming out with his own watch line “Chalk by Quincy.”   We were in awe; his intelligence, maturity and incredibly appreciative attitude towards the life he’s been granted kept us wanting to find out more.

INTERVIEW: Gender-Neutral Shoe Designer NiK Kacy

“I think [we’re] starting to, basically, revolutionize the way that we view bodies — Not looking at someone just based on their gender, but just based on their style,” said Nik Kacy, creator and designer of the gender-neutral and gender-equal shoe line, NiK Kacy.

Kacy transitioned to a gender-neutral individual by undergoing top surgery last August after years of struggle. “I think it just speaks volumes that when we’re young, we’re all trying to discover ourselves and we don’t know who we are and it doesn’t help that people bully us because we’re different. Just because we’re different, shouldn’t mean that we should be discriminated against. We should be celebrated because we’re different.

Be unique.’ But then when you are, people beat you up for it,” said Kacy during our interview.

INTERVIEW: Lego Artist Andy Bauch

For some, playing with Legos may have been a great childhood pastime, but for Andy Bauch, an artist and software developer from Queens, New York, Legos are more than just toys.

Bauch utilizes hundreds, if not thousands, of Lego pieces in order to create extraordinary mosaic artworks. We had a chance to meet with him moments before his first (!) art exhibition at Art Share-LA in Downtown, Los Angeles. This Edgar Allan Faux type told us how his attempt to impress a girl turned into an amazing hobby.
