“I see my body like a canvas or a white sheet. I cover my body with stigma which represents my way of seeing life.”
What country are you from and where do you live?
I am from Montreal, Canada.
Art has many forms. You are using yourself as a work of art. How would you describe your signature style/artistic expression?
I see my body like a canvas or a white sheet. At the age of 14 I knew I wanted to be covered with full tattoos! From a very young age I have been fascinated by the paranormal, horror movies, creatures, demon, demonology etc. I would describe my style as very dark gothic with a modern touch. I bathe in all aesthetics dark, trash, vamp, demon style.
What made you become your own work of art and how did you develop your unique look?
I cover my body with stigma (tattoos) which represents my way of seeing life. They also represent my imagination and aesthetic for my obsession with the macabre and the image that I always wanted to project. I have developed my style over the years with my experience and as a tattoo artist I did it by doing some of the tattoos I have myself! Otherwise the rest is the work of an artist.
What kind of products and props do you use to create your looks?
To create my look I regularly use recycled clothes that I redo in its entirety. I like the unmistakable brands like Killstar, Blackcraftcult and Restyle. In terms of accessories I usually make my own jewelry and accessories by hand otherwise they are thrift stores finds. If I’m looking for something in particular I order online. For makeup I use MAC, NYX, Kat VonD Beauty, Jeffree Star Cosmetics and Kryolan makeup FX.
Do you have any specific names for your characters?
By the way is not a character, it’s me! People call me London but I also have a second name Black Philip. What inspires each look? Dark aesthetic.
Can you take this form of art and create a business from it?
Of course, I have a plan to start my own brand of clothes and accessories! My body modifications opened a lot of doors for me on a personal and professional level modelling for shoots, runway work and acting.
