On The Q&A Tip with Askem

Psykhomantus: Okay, first thing I wanna say is you've got some dope skills with the art work. My first question is where are you from and what you do for a living?

Askem: I am from London and am a full time artist.

P: When did you get into art. What or who was your first take on this skill that made you want to take part?

A: Always interested in art but really took it up as a serious career 2 years ago

P: Judging by your work, it's safe to say that you are really into the Hip Hop culture. When did first get into the culture?

A: Around 1984 listening to likes of cold crush brothers, furious five main influence was/is Public Enemy

P: Most Hip Hop artists or groups have cool logos that fit their image. Can you name 5 Rap Artist/Group logos that you rate and why?

A: Thats a hard one as I am bias so I would only mention 2 1st being Public Enemy -logo epitomizes the b boy culture and also makes powerful political statement 2ns being Zulu nation logo as it signifies a great deal of unity and oneness
P: If you could redesign an album cover, which one would it be?

A: yo bum rush the show Public Enemy

P: What would you say is your best work?

A: Work I enjoy the most I would say is the public enemy pieces I have done,for technical ability maybe Gil Scott Heron piece or RZA

P: Is there a art work that you've done and said to yourself that you could of done that better?

A: Always!! I am critical of everything I do and always think there is room for improvement, a piece of work could be endless if you allow it to,it is about just having that point in your mind though where you go 'done'

P: Name 5 artists whose deadly with the art skills that you rate and why?

A: For me there is only 3 that I hold in esteem
Dali` - for me an artist who's work can take you on a complete journey of the mind through, an unparalleled artist
Herge`- Creator of Tin Tin, exciting and iconic work that was major influence on me as a child
Warhol- Influenced by more the man than the work, Warhol's ability to produce en mass is what strikes me most, the sheer volume of work is something to aspire to

P: Dangerous Question: Is there an artist you feel is wack with the pen?

A: Art is a gift so I wouldn't put any artist on blast, I think it is about the intention more than the skill. if you have the right intentions as an artist and respect the craft I think that counts for a lot, those who don't are not worth mentioning

P: Last question. What will we be expecting in the future from you?

A: Some very exciting projects with some Hip Hop gods, and the continued visual embodiment of Hip Hop itself.
