Devendra Banhart

20 June 2011

I’ve been quietly watching Devendra Banhart for ages, just questioning how a man can be a great musician, a really good skate boarder, a womaniser and an incredible artist. Is he the one who possesses Bernard’s Watch? There is no other explanation. His artwork is very illustrative and dreamy, makes you feel high just looking at it. The whole musician-branching-out-into-visual-arts thing doesn’t always translate that well (e.g Bob Dylan) but Banhart’s hazy and beautiful work fully compliments his trippy music.
