All I want to do is everything. What inspires me is a passion to explore things and find the connections between them. I cook in order to understand music. I write in order to understand photography. I program in order to understand design. I paint in order to understand all of it.
As an artist, my work is driven by exploration. I spend most of my time making things (paintings, apps, music, designs, photos, etc.) or chasing after new discoveries that will shape my work.
Nothing makes me happier than exploring a hundred different ideas at once in order to see how they all fit together. I love finding the threads that tie one idea / form / domain to another (like where vegan food becomes art) and turning these discoveries into stuff that I can share with you.
In that way, my work is a balance between two extremes: a broad curiosity to explore everything that I find fascinating, plus a dedicated focus on producing the work inspired by my exploration.
Drew is my name, but I sign all my stuff as [label.] because I wanted one generic label that I could stamp onto all the different things I make, and label. is that label.
[label.] is just a blank empty space that has no definition. Maybe it’s also a message that we are each limited only by the boxes we draw around ourselves, and anything that is [label.] is undefined and therefore unlimited…
