Today we’d like to introduce you to Zinapunx.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
My name is Zina, everything started with my band named Zinapunx, we wrote our original sci-fi band story which turned into manga book, it will be released soon. We all met in Shanghai. All members are from different countries (Czech, USA, Japan, Tahiti), then we had a chance to release music stuff in Tokyo. We wanna spread our art in LA to let people understand more about our story
Please tell us about your art.
Me and my band members write our original band story, which is Sci-fi mixed with music and placed in Asia (Tokyo-Hongkong-Shanghai), every episode having additional song from our band, We play electro-punk anime style. We love Japanese culture and manga stuff, so we jumped into a long story and expressing our characters and experiences in there. Our manga artist is Igor Cicarini who is helping to express our story by amazing drawings. Message and inspiration: People getting too much controlled by technology and getting stuck in there (phones and so on, we using chips which are directly implanted to the head), We need to worry about it, cause it’s the easiest way how to control our mind, and hopefully music will free our minds.
Given everything that is going on in the world today, do you think the role of artists has changed? How do local, national or international events and issues affect your art?
Yes, the world has changed, everything is controlled by the internet and makes your stuff easier and harder at the same time. People are getting more busy about promoting their art than about creation.. and living not in real life but in the virtual reality. For art is sometimes difficult to focus without bothering things which make you busy and annoyed. Technology is pushing the speed and also low quality, the flow of change is too fast. People are easy to get bored of everything, it makes artists sometimes tired and feels empty 🙂 So that’s also part of the story. Keep dreaming and building your own world
