Throughout his career so far he has featured with artists like Dee Gomes and hasworked under Rhode Island's very own independent label “Applying Pressure Forever”, so do not be surprised when he is on stage in the New England area. This video was directed by Jay Pusha alongside Wet Visuals. When watching the video you learn that over many obstacles that are given to Lynx, he can overcome all of them and come out on top. The unique part of the video is the constant moon and nighttime theme during the day. This comes to show that you better watch out with the bars Jae Lynx has when the lights go out. The song is great. The song is catchy. The video emphasizes the dance moves we all want to do when listening to and watching this video. Not only that but he uses his real life experiences, putting them into his music. This makes his tracks more relatable to the young teens going through the same struggles of being a “Street Cat”. Gaining the attention of the artist community, including Pnb Rock & Trippie Redd, Jae Lynx is on the right track. He is always cooking up something different and does not stop working. He is a very determined artist and not checking out this video is a loss. Lynx is definitely somebody to look up to in the community While he is still freah and on the rise!

Q: How do you manage with being so young in the industry?

A: I just love how the energy of the crowds get when they see a 15 year old boy on stage going crazy. That is when I just sit there and say “ohh shit”.

Q: Who is your biggest inspiration?

A: If I could tell the public something about myself it would be, I love each and everyone of y’all and I would never give up on the path that I chose. I hope you guys do the same and make sure to follow your dreams. If I can do it you can do it!

Q:When you were first interested in art what was your favorite medium? What is it currently?

A:The cartoons, animated series and drawings has been my childhood and whole life inspiration, however my first real interest in art came some months after I finished my university Career. I started to get to know visual artists who had in their artwork similar influences or inspirations like mine, the difference was that at that time they worked on it and I was as spectator. Their techniques were digital art, illustration, muralism, oil on canvas, I was a little bit obsessed with their proposals that I started to practice and develop concepts and techniques based on my likes. In that transition I was lucky enough to attend a workshop dictated by one of those artists and it was like the exact moment I could find myself artistically speaking.

Q: Where did your inspiration come from for your latest collection the 2080s?

A: The retro world has always been one of my biggest inspirations. I am literally absorbed by the colors, clothing, hairstyle, music and movies of the past. I think you can see the vintage style in all my artwork not only The 2080s. In 2017, I decided to do the 2080s as tribute of these likes, but first I had planned to do it in relation to  Electronic DJ’s, in the course of the year my mind lit up, and I asked myself, “Why don’t you try with the popular singers” that way the project would be bigger than only focusing on the electronic music world. I then changed my artists name list and started to do the project until now.

Q: How did you feel when people in the music industry got in contact with you for your work to be featured?

A: I felt very grateful, it makes you think that you are doing things right. It  is also so exciting when a company or celebrity that you are a fan of contacts you. It is a short but good feeling.

Q: What is your favorite piece from your latest collection?

My favorite illustration is “Migos from 2080s”  I love how the colors looked and how Offset was composed.

Q: Have you ever used your art to comment on any political or economical issues?

A: No really, but when I was finishing my career I worked for a local magazine which I used to make political and social caricatures. I made many drawings about it and I enjoyed because actually I am very interested in the bad political situation within  my country (Colombia). Currently, I do not have the interest or the inspiration to combine my pop art with politics. The closest has been the Trump pieces but it is just funny concepts. Something that I plan on doing is some projects related to the situation of endangered animals on the planet. You can search the orangutan piece that I have made. That is what I’m talking about.

Q: What other collections would you be interested in doing? (I.e Marvel, DC, Cartoons,

Sports, or more on music)

A: With a company we did something related DC comics when the Batman vs Superman released. I definitely want to do more projects in each of the areas that you have mentioned. The good part of this is that pop culture is a huge inspiration which you can find and take from infinite paths.

Q: If somebody would want to buy one of your art pieces how would they go about it?

A: Now people can contact me via email or DM from my Instagram account. I’m currently working on a website so it will be easier to everybody interested in my art as well.

Q: What is something you would want the public to know about your art?

A: I just want to share with them our same interests. I know people that follow me are people that love the same things that I love, like music, movies, nostalgia, retro, pop culture essentially. The difference is I express that inspirations and they are like spectators but we belong to the same club.  I want to entertain them, for instance, they came out from their reality for a while and contemplated my artworks because each of my pieces has details that communicate something. My thinking is that the concept must be more important than my art techniques. I think that’s why it has that impact.

Q: What is one goal that you have set for yourself?

A: I want to continue growing professionally and manage to do work for great companies or artists that I follow. Besides that I want to do clothing, it is something that I have always had in mind.

Q: What do you like most about your career? What do you like least?

A: The thing I like most about my job is the feeling that this is not a job. I like being able to do the things that I love and people pay you or value you is a blessing. It is more gratifying when you know that you have been working hard to achieve it. On the other hand, what I dislike is that I would like to do a lot of artwork or projects all the time but my process in general is pretty long, mainly the research after I got the inspiration. Another one depends so much of social media, social media opens curiosity,  in fact I got this recognition due to social media but one day the social media might disappear and what would happen to me or any other artists? That’s why I am working on other channels apart this one to grow as an artist. You can see that the famous artists in the past did not live with this technology and they became the greatest artists in history. But,  we are in this time and we have to take these opportunities, the point is to try to do not depend 100% of it.
