Hey, I'm Wynter Gordon, and I'm an artist.
00:05
I've always been the type of person to fuse different
00:08
areas and aesthetics together.
00:10
I just do it with everything, clothing, music.
00:14
I love to travel.
00:15
I love to get away and experience new things,
00:20
and I have been all over the world.
00:22
If I'm walking down the street and something inspires me,
00:24
I'll take a picture of it,
00:25
and it all goes into my mood board, from hair to nails
00:29
to eye makeup to shoes.
00:32
Everything I do like I have to build a world around.
00:36
I shot this video recently, and I wanted it to look very
00:39
like digital age meets old western.
00:42
In my mind I had like such strong imagery mood boarded
00:45
from all these magazines and different like posters,
00:48
so it played with the old and the new.
00:52
It was perfect.
00:53
If I see it, I'll try my best to bring it to life.
00:57
And I just like to get into a lot of different things.
00:59
Sometimes I have trouble focusing simply because
01:02
I have so much passion for so many things,
01:05
and I'm not gonna stop.
