In this age of capitalism, in order to stay relevant, your fans need to be able to recognize your music. This therefor places pressure on an artist to continue to only exist in their one realm of music, hindering creativity and holding artists back from allowing them to fully express themselves. This exhibition will aim to encourage musicians to express themselves in any media they see fit.
One artist who has, from the beginning, kept an open mind and has never limited himself with boundaries is Archy Marshall. Marshall is a 24 year-old English singer, rapper, songwriter, poet, painter, fashion designer, record producer and musician who is most recognizable as being the lead singer in the indie, punk rock band King Krule. Although the album he released with King Krule in 2013, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, received instant positive critical reception and gained him the majority of his fan base, Marshall has never limited his creative outlets in aims to simply please the fans of this band. Instead, he has chosen to take on multiple genres, ranging from techno to rap, and in addition, has released paintings, clothing, zines, poetry, and films that have shaped him as a well-rounded artist.
By showcasing the multi-media art by Archy Marshall, both fans and musicians alike will be able to realize that encouraging artists to express themselves in this way not only allows for fans to dive into different media forms that allow them to explore the minds of artists more thoroughly, but it also allows for the limitations and boundaries of artists to be broken; begging for the artist to heighten their creativity and express themselves more naturally.
