Meet Butch Locsin

Today we’d like to introduce you to Butch Locsin.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Butch. So, let’s start at the beginning, and we can move on from there.
How I got started? I think it was from necessity. I felt like I needed to create something for myself that will provide the inspiration and resources I needed in order for me to be a successful artist. How I got to where I am today was from continuously working hard to answering my own personal questions and finding the means to answer them.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
For the most part, it’s been a smooth road. I had bumps and bruises along the way, but they had nothing to do with me being able to elevate my art. I struggled with a lot of personal doubt, self-motivation, and heartache. They derailed me from focusing on my art, but I got back on track.

We’d love to hear more about what you do.
My art is a combination of color, live performances, and photography. I am the subject matter that creates visually interesting photos through the use to smoke grenades and movement. I am known as the “Skeleton of Color,” and you can find me on Instagram @Butch_Locsin_from_LA. I’m proud to be able to share my art with you.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Nothing. It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. I can’t tell you how many stations that I’ve been in within the last three year and not know what to do. I remember the first time I was on set for a music video. I was so nervous. I didn’t know how to conduct myself, what was expected of me, and I didn’t want to seem ignorant.

After learning those experiences, I’ve come to realize that I needed to learn those experiences. I’m happy with who I am today, and I know the reason for my happiness is from the collected experiences I’ve had. I wouldn’t change and make nothing different.
