For the next two weeks we’re featuring KAANG.
“I go by KAANG, I am a 24 year old painter and rapper from Los Angeles. I've been doing both since I was very little. My current style is an amalgamation of single line figurative gestures and destructive abstractions to represent my emotions. I use this format of painting to process my mental illness, and overwhelming feelings. This piece is called Critical Pacing it came in the midst of losing a job, a relationship ending and a medication change around the same time.”

We have partnered with COLORSxSTUDIOS to help curate future shows. Through this exercise in collaborative symbiosis, we will learn how to link processes between COLORS and the community plus create novel revenue streams to benefit our treasury and project contributors.
Over the past weeks, the project contributors have been building playlists and collecting information on local artists in Vietnam. We will soon be moving from our personal shortlists to a community longlist, before trimming that back down to a shortlist.
If you’re in the community or DAO, it is not too late to participate! Find the toolkit in the info channel and follow the steps.
Next Wednesday we’ll be joined by the COLORSxSTUDIOS curation team for our weekly curatorial research call. We’ll align with them on next steps and learn what it takes to get to a great shortlist. RSVP.
We appreciate the efforts of the large number of community contributors involved in these projects.
