Aubrey Mozingo




     Gooood Morning Kc! We are back with another amazing interview from Aubrey Mozingo, creator of Eclecart! As always, we asked Mozingo a few questions to get the inside scoop on what it’s like to be an artist in the Kc art district, and also to learn a little more about the artist behind the art! 



 INSIDE w/ KC ARTIST: Aubrey Mozingo 


        What inspires your creativity?

  “What inspires my creativity are things that have and are influencing me everyday. I have a lot of appreciation towards different styles of art whether it’s from old Italian renaissance art, the impressionist era, to traditional style of tattoo designs and many things in between. Commissions inspire me a lot as well. Experimenting with other peoples ideas of what they love and enjoy, researching exactly how to represent that for them, then executing that piece, allows me learn and work through things I probably would’ve never created based on my own interests. Breaking out of my comfort zone refreshes my inspiration.”

 

     What does your artwork represent?

  “What my artwork represents is me as a whole. My style is very eclectic. I love so many different styles from different parts of life that when I mesh it all together, to me, it all fits and makes sense. It also represents that I’m forever still learning and growing. What I create now may change drastically within 5 years time, therefor I have changed with time. “


    How do you make it, in the art community?

    “How I make it in the art community is by the community itself. There are so many resources and opportunities the community presents that are out there waiting for you to reach out and grab them. I’ve been able to connect with people in the community and ask questions, relate with the hustle of being an artist, bounce ideas off one another, and just overall have the same appreciation for the arts.“



     What does art mean to you, and what does it mean for society? 

   “What art means to me is freedom of expression. And I think that is what it means for society as well. It’s an outlet for conversations to happen, to find more about ourselves and one another. It creates history and teaches people about the past, how we feel about the present, and what we hope for in the future. Art is free to immerse ourselves in fantasies, realities, love, and loneliness, that everyone in life can find some common ground to. It makes a statement.”


     How does being from Kc affect your work in the Artist community?

  “Kansas City has a great affect on work in the artist community because this city has so much love and appreciation for the arts. It is forever growing. I’ve lived in KC my whole life and growing up, I would attend many different art fairs and museums this city has to offer. “


     What is your favorite medium to work with?

   “My favorite medium right now is clay. Ceramics has been that hidden passion I’ve had to find and discover, when I somehow knew it all along. I was first mostly into illustration. I loved using charcoal, watercolors, pastels, but I never could see myself have a career as an artist through those mediums. Once I picked up ceramics, I found the missing piece. Using my whole mind and body to create with clay, while being able to use techniques from drawing and painting all spun into one is what has lead me to where I am now as a ceramic artist.”


     Last, but never least… a little about yourself?

  “I’m a 24 year old just now starting to discover my passion in life. I’ve taken 2 ceramic classes, one from high school, and a college class that got cut short due to COVID. Since then I’ve been teaching myself everything about ceramics, from throwing on the wheel to firings and kiln maintenance. I’m still learning a lot about this field as I go. I have a loving fiancé and my 3 fur babies, friends and family that have show a great deal of support. I’m my free time I love listening to true crime podcasts, reading, playing with my dogs and cat, and eating food”
