Today we’d like to introduce you to Fredy Mejia.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
It wasn’t until my freshmen year in high school, where I realized that I wanted to invest my life into the artistic rabbit hole I was falling into. Whether it was making beats for the homies or coming up with a new tag to paint around the city, I was finding my true “calling,” which was being in tune with my creative self. Not until my junior year when I discovered this amazing community of photographers meeting up and taking these photos of Dallas from rooftops that made me want to buy a camera and go try this put for myself. Since day one from picking up that camera, I knew this was gonna be something that was gone change my life for sure. Slowly it turned from rooftops to more conceptual based photos capturing someone’s aura in a way maybe they or the world hasn’t yet seen.
Please tell us about your art.
My main medium is visual arts. Whether its photography, short videos, or paintings, I always love creating something that can be appealing to the viewer’s eye.
Whenever I take a photo of whatever the subject at hand is I have one ideal goal I strive to achieve, to produce some form of emotion based on the subject of the photo. I never have a “message” I wanna get across I just want to make the viewer feel something when they see one of my photos. Whether you feel a sense of happiness or melancholy if you feel or understand the mood I’ve set my mission is accomplished with that project. Pero tambien I chase capturing those raw, unapologetic moments of the homies who make my photo catalog unique, from Aaron throwing his set up during a lookbook shoot for Staygood to Kongo talking about his poetry and posing at the same time talking about “we ‘gon hit this hoe fasho this time”, it all plays major role into how I make my art come to life.
I would want people to know that the phrase “less is more” holds more meaning when it comes to not only my art but hopefully everyone’s art.
Choosing a creative or artistic path comes with many financial challenges. Any advice for those struggling to focus on their artwork due to financial concerns?
Trust the process. If you’re doing whatever artistic path you chose for the right reasons, then it’ll pay off in the long run financially. Get that side job to stack some bread up to invest in your craft, nine to five pays the bills, but the dream gets you rich mijo.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
My work can be seen either through my website (which hopefully when this is published, it should be back up lmao) or simply on my IG via @bxe.v.
