Conversations with Samuel Kinsella

Today we’d like to introduce you to Samuel Kinsella.

Hi Samuel, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I grew up in LA in a family of artists. I started creating things when I was young and never stopped. Whether it was making clothes, designing things, writing music, I always had to be making something. I’ve been running a clothing brand inspired by LA for three years and working as a freelance artist and designer.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I’ve gone through patches of discouragement with music; it’s rough seeing how much time you can spend on something and then realizing how much of that time can go unrewarded. The music you want to make doesn’t always align with the music everybody wants to hear. Luckily I’ve found a lot of joy and fulfillment with the ASIS coalition. It seems people are really enjoying what I’ve been making there, and it’s been paying the bills, which is always nice.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a designer, artist, musician, and producer. I’ve always wanted to be the one who makes what other people consume. I live and breathe my art cause if I didn’t put it all somewhere, I wouldn’t know what to do with myself. I run a clothing brand called the ASIS coalition that upcycles garments and gives them a new life and a new home. I record and release albums, compose scores, and produce music.

How can people work with you, collaborate with you or support you?
The most direct and fulfilling way to support me is by grabbing something from the ASIS coalition. Then you can get a unique upcycled piece special to you. Otherwise, you can share around my music, artwork, and design, follow me on Instagram, and get me around.
