A sudden brilliant, creative and timely idea is the definition used to describe inspiration.
There is no telling when it will strike; it is as random as tossing a coin and seeing which side it will fall on. However, when stumbled upon, it has the potential to push individuals to provide their best work and propel them to a level of creativity unlike any other.
Inspiration has the power to change the world, as it births ideas and moves the masses to act upon their thoughts.
Knowing how to translate these bouts of creativity into meaningful projects skillfully is not as easy as it seems. To appeal to a wider audience, they must be able to convey messages effectively.
Who is Racquel Jones?
For Racquel Jones, exploring the chapters of her life was a no-brainer. A singer, songwriter, visual artist, model, and painter, she is putting her knowledge of the arts to use in her upcoming event at START Los Angeles.
Combining each track of her debut album into an individual painting, she aims to help her audience grasp the magnitude of its meaning and how deeply it reflects her personal life.
“The project addresses stereotypes commonly faced by marginalized and oppressed people. Sonically, I wanted a sound that colored outside the lines of restrictions and what is considered normal and trendy, only adhering and obedient to whatever is felt,” explains Racquel.
Open and coarse with a deep dive into mental anguish, she redefines what it means to be vulnerable and hopes that her struggles will help others who may be going through the same situation.
“That’s me, and I’m baring my soul for the world to see and hear,” she adds, cementing what this project represents.
