Grinder Interview: Lola LoveNotes

Written by Millie Cintron

This week, Millie gets into an in-depth interview with street artist Lola LoveNotes. 

Tell us about yourself. My name is Lola Lovenotes and I am a NYC based visual artist and muralist.    What type of art do you favor? Well I love to paint. I really enjoy Graffiti and Street art and I primarily am involved in those art forms, however I have a love for ceramics and messing with clay that I haven't fully explored yet and I can't wait to do so.   How long have you been making art? I've been drawing and creating since I was a small child. I remember it just being something I always did.     When did you know your passion was art? and what/who inspired you? I knew I loved art since I was a tiny tot watching all my favorite cartoons and desperately trying to recreate them on paper. I was definitely influenced by my family especially my brother and my father growing up since they were artists in their own ways. As I got older loving art and expressing myself through it was just so natural to me, I just knew one way or another I was going to be involved in the art world. Everything inspired me, and still does. Nature, graffiti, Anime, sex, love, fairytales, life.    Any well known places where people can view your art? Yes, actually. The largest mural I've done is on Troutman and Wyckoff Ave in the Bushwich Section of Brooklyn.   What are your views on Graffiti/Street Art? I love it. I'm all for it. Freedom of speech/expression. It's been around ancient times and it'll forever be around. Let that shit rock.    Any tips for artists out here grinding in NYC? Never stop creating, don't let the city life distract you from what your passions are. Try to infuse your social life with your art career and you'll never feel like your working.    What do you hope to gain from your passion in painting? Goals? The goal is travel the world doing what I love - Painting murals and creating. Spreading love, awareness, and creating art that people can identify with.    Where can we reach you?
