Montero Lamar Hill, known by his stage name Lil Nas X, is an American rapper and singer.
A black homosexual, Lil Nas puts his identity on a pedestal, embraces his uniqueness and minority status, thus inspiring African Americans and the LGBTQ community alike.
His fashion pieces and artistic visuals include bold colors and patterns, and he vehemently decides to work with female fashion designers in order to embrace and give the stage to women and their craft. According to Lil Nas, his artistic language is greatly inspired by renowned artist Prince, and he defines his fashion style as “very experimental”.
In addition, his video clips embrace his sexual identity, bringing homosexuality to the mainstream. In his aforementioned video, Lil Nas uses CGI technology that enables him to obfuscate the boundaries of reality and let his listeners and viewers enter a hyper-realistic fantasy world, while still adhering to top-notch visual expressions and graphic designs as his tool of expression.
Our CGI team at Dan Alexander & Co draws great inspiration from both his craft and his persona. We aim to use his visual and artistic language in advocating for racial and sexual justice and allowing individuals to elevate and show the world their idiosyncratic selves.
