Mishka family I would like you all to meet the multimedia installation artist and electronic musician out of the NYC area, JJ Brine. He is pushing the doorways open with his dose of post human art. In July 2013 JJ opened up an art space VECTOR on the lower east side of NYC and soon afterwards, The Vector Gallery was quickly described as the best new art gallery by Art-awards.com and also called the new Andy’ Warhol’s Factory by The Huffington Post. JJ’s artwork, style, direction and all around creativity is showcased heavy at gallery and as a musician Brine uses his originality and vision to shine bright. He has described his solo musical projects as ESM (electronic sprit music). JJ also plays part to The LaBiancas, a Charles Manson concept duo band. In the long run JJ is a artist on the forefront of a new movement, so recently I to caught up with the artist for a few words, I was honored - and here’s what we discussed:
Robbie: Hello and how are you today?
JJ: The feeling is indescribable.
Robbie: Ok, in your own words what should a first time vector gallery visitor expect?
Robbie: What would you say has been your favorite event (or art) showcased at the vector gallery and why?
JJ: Independence Night. It was like the Red Sea, parting
Robbie: Can you tell us your main goal when you opened the doors at vector gallery? And what inspired you?
JJ: The goal was the act itself, and I was inspired by doing it.
Robbie: You’ve described vector as having its own time zone. Can you feel us in a little more on that?
JJ: Yes. It’s easier for me to bend 2014 to my will if I’m working in 2019.
Robbie: How did you come up with the concept of ESM for your solo projects and how did the Charles Manson concept band come together? - Are there any musical projects for you in the works?
JJ: It came from a sense of being possessed and using vocal transformers to give voice to the spirits that wanted to sing through me. There are so many spirits, and surely there is more for them to sing about.
Robbie: What should we look forward to seeing coming out of the vector gallery?
JJ: A big change is coming soon. But for now that information remains classified, so you’ll have to wait and see.
