We had the good fortune of connecting with Kayo SinnedOut and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kayo, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I have always had an attraction to art and fashion since I was a little kid. I fell in love with the idea of art itself and being able to express yourself by doing different things in a creative way. I honestly couldn’t see myself doing anything different that would equate to the happiness of being a creative.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My art is my art “SinnedOut” most of my work displays of my personal feelings and thoughts just being expressed through clothing and graphics. I am influenced by everything and anything around me. I include a lot of punk aesthetic in my work which is something I am a very big fan of. I’m inspired by the whole movement of the whole punk/rock lifestyle with people like Sid Vicious, Kurt Cobain, Johnny Rotten as well as other from that whole era. My work includes a lot of statements, quotes, messages that makes me stand out from everyone else. Every single design that I make or put out has a deeper meaning behind it and I always encourage everyone to try to look at it like that and not just a regular design on a T Shirt. It was definitely not easy to get to the point that I am at now. It took a lot of consistency for people to actually take me serious and realize that “Wow this kid really isn’t playing” I haven’t even showed the world what I am capable of yet because SinnedOut is more than just clothes it’s a whole movement and way of life. There is way more in store for me to show everyone with time.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Atlanta is filled with a lot of fun places for different types of people. Personally I like going to places like No Signal, Little 5 Points, Atlantic Station, etc. Mostly places where a lot of creatives could be found and these places also have may different types of eateries around it that don’t disappoint.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My group 44/250 plays a part in my whole career, meeting these people allowed me to broaden my social skills as well as meet a lot of new people that are into the same things that I am into. It’s a creative group of producers, rappers, photographers, anything you can think of. There are a lot of other people who has added to my life and story as they know who they are.
