Pill Visits KAWS: DOWN TIME at Atlanta's High Museum of Art

Pill Visits KAWS: DOWN TIME at Atlanta's High Museum of ArtPill

Can we expect any art from you in the future?

Of course, I designed my t-shirt that I have out-my “No Sleep Gang” t-shirt-but I may pick up a paintbrush in the near future. When I was younger, my art was displayed but I haven’t done anything in my adulthood. I sketch a lot but I don’t actually paint anything anymore like I used to when I was younger. I think I stopped painting when I was in high school. When I was in advanced art, I was a really dope painter - I’ve always been artistic when it comes to drawing. 

I think after high school I just focused more on music more than the painting because I was doing everything from playing an instrument to painting to poetry to rap music to football, baseball, basketball so I had to set a few things down. I had to set all of them down and concentrate on rapping. Mainly, I sketch tattoos nowadays-the Pill tattoo I have on my arm I drew that and took it to the tattoo artist and let him tattoo it on me. I do mainly tattoo designs or something that I want to have as a record label design for Medicinal Records, a company that I’m launching, or t-shirt designs-just different things, whatever comes through my head and I feel like drawing it. I have an old notebook full of drawing and raps everywhere like stacks of raps when I used to write on paper a lot back in the day, I still have it. A lot of my raps and sketches are still on there. It varies, honestly.

Absolutely well if you ever do come out with anything you have to let us know.

Definitely will.

Anything else you want to add?

That it was a wonderful experience and it’s always a wonderful experience. I want to thank all the staff that walked me through the exhibit and showed me a lot of hospitality so shout out to all the people at the High Museum and shout out to all the people at Complex as well.
