May I introduce: Kay Davis

Artist Interview

Every now and then you meet someone and there's just an immediate boom! Total girl crush! As I usually get along far better with boys, this always happens as a surprise. I've been stalking Kay's instagram for a while before texting her when I actually found the time to travel to London. Just the day before leaving we managed to find a time and it became one of the best days I had that week. Along strolls across Bethnal Green, Indian jewellery shopping and being introduced to my newest addiction (plantain chips) we managed to get a few photos shot for MTV STYLE. Here's the outcome along with a little interview. For the whole editorial check MTV STYLE GERMANY!

Who is Kay Davis?
I am an artist/ textiles designer who experiments with different art practices to create a range of tangible visuals such as paintings, jewellery, fabrics and photography.

What is you favourite piece you ever did? 
Making accessories was a big deal for me so I'd have to say my three piece choker with the Pom Poms hanging from it. I created it as a part of a collection for my degree show at Central Saint Martins. I was completely broke and couldn't afford yarn to knit an outfit and ended up knitting accessories out of embroidery thread. I literally pushed till I couldn't push any further and ended up surprising myself.  

Where do you get your inspiration from?   
A lot of my inspiration comes from my childhood and culture. I'm very nostalgic and find it hard to let go of my past. I see a lot of good memories in vibrant child like colours. Being a women is also a big deal to me. We carry such beautiful energy and I like to embrace that.   

When did you start working as an artist?  
2010 I was working in a boutique called Year Zero London. I was constantly inspired and they always pushed me to be myself. I'd go home and create after work.

What is one of your career goals for the future?  
I have one to many. I would really love to have my own brand eventually with wearable art and accessories. I'd also love to curate shows and art direct. It would be great to continue to share my vision through out different outlets but of course on a bigger and better scale.  

Describe your style in three words?  
Vibrant, eccentric and embellished.  

Where do you like to shop?  
I don't really shop often but when I do I'm pretty laid back. I'm happy going places like Deptford Market and sourcing gems that people usually look past. It all depends on the occasion.  In terms of shoes I own one to many Doc Marten boots.   

What's your favourite piece in your closet? 
My dad's long sleeve silk shirts from the 90's! I've got them in so many different colours. It's funny because my dad is quite big so they fit me over size but that's what makes them great!  

What's your favourite brand or designer?  
At the moment I'm really into designers like  Jeremy Scott, Manish Arora, Mary Katrantzou, Balmain and Mark fast but also really love brands like Discount Universe, Nympha, Meat clothing and leutton Postle. It's cool when you can see a brand's journey from the come up and enjoy it just as much as a top designer. I'm literally down to support anyone with actual talent and an epic vision.
