Meet artist Mardy Color supporter of MMJ. She creates art for everything from t-shirts, posters, stickers to handmade collectibles and other CBD and cannabis related products. We reached out to get the skinny on her custom weed renditions and she had to use a translator for the interview. Check out her crafts, follow and share the links below.
When did you first get into style writing and street art culture?
I started painting when I was three years old. I think I was about 25 when I came across street art.
What is the Japanese cannabis culture scene like?
In Japan, we have been living with cannabis since ancient times. It was used in meals, clothing and ceremonies. However, cannabis is now said to be bad for the body. Regulations are becoming stricter in Japan.
When did you first start doing your cannabis themed artwork?
Since 2018, I have been making works on the theme of cannabis.
How do people in Japan view your artwork?
People who like cannabis often say “KAWAII”.
How would you describe writing/street art culture in Japan?
I think Japan has a low awareness of streetart.
If you could collaborate with any writer or artist dead or alive who would it be?
I love cannabis and want to work with people who can respect each other. It doesn’t matter who you can have fun with. Whether it’s a celebrity or not.
What keeps you inspired to keep creating artwork?
Daily life. I value what I felt when I saw a movie and what I felt when I left. Cherish every moment.
Any countries where you would like to travel to promote your artwork?
Canada and Amsterdam!
What would you like others to know about yourself or other Japanese artists?
I want you to be happy with the art I create. I want to add fun to my daily life and want you to know more about me having fun doing my projects and activities.
Any shout outs you would like to give?
Cannabis is never a bad thing. It is a plant that inhabits this wonderful planet. There are no plants, animals, or insects to be excluded. To more world PEACE and HAPPINESS!!!
