Rising Stars: Meet Dhyaan Patel

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dhyaan Patel.

Hi Dhyaan, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
My creative journey started when I took my first trip to Thailand two years ago. I had a $10 camera with me at the time and I started taking photos of the environment and people around me. I quickly grew to love capturing photos. Fast forward when I came back, I start sewing clothing as well. So I put both my skill sets to the test and started networking with other creatives and artists. Soon I started giving some of my cut and sew pieces to upcoming artists around LA. At the same time, my photos started to grow attention. I was meeting up with a lot of big artists like blueface, Isiah Rashad, Jay Rock, guapdad4000, etc. Meeting these people was surreal at first but I soon come to realize that I was able to create at a high-quality level. I was at par with my creativity with people who are already well known in the industry. Ever since all that, I’ve been working day to day on my own creative label with my partner Mark Lux. I manage Mark as well, we have big goals in this music industry and I know that his music is a breath of fresh air to the industry. We just need the right ears to listen and people to give us one chance.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
People would overlook my talent due to my followers on social media. Being a fairly new creative, people didn’t think I had what it took to be at that level. I kept my down and kept grinding. It’s also very hard to grow when people don’t always try and share your work. As time went on it’s gotten better, but truly that’s one of the hardest things. When people don’t share your work, you become stagenet. We have a lot more to prove on the way and we’re just getting started.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I’m a creative director/manager. I do creative photo and direction work and alongside manage my artist Mark Lux. I’m known for my abstract scenes that we set up, I like to take the person out of their normal everyday environments. I Like to bring the scenic shots to life in all my photos and visuals. Mark and I have a strong bond, he’s become a brother to me and that’s why things have grown fast. When I tell him something he shuts up and listens and I do the same. Keeping each other in check is the best thing you could do. We make sure we’re always aligned with our long-term goal. That sets us apart from others because we’re in this to help others, not chase the money behind it. Money will come at the right time, but leaving an impact is our biggest goal. Helping the kids and people around the world that are helpless. Shining light on the minorities around the world. That’s why we made our creative label (Slumsons), the whole concept of the brand is to be inspired by the kids from slums and use their way of life and culture as art. Rise from the slums

Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
Music and fashion has changed a lot over the last five years. In the next five years, I know there will be a breath of fresh air with real quality music. Really trying to also change the way art is perceived. There’s so much bad in the world that I want to be a part of changing that, and I can’t see another way to do it than by bringing it to the public’s attention thru a creative art form. I’m excited to show the world what we have in store.
