We had the good fortune of connecting with Hevy and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Hevy, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
you don’t know. but when you want it enough it doesn’t matter. you stop when your thirst has been quenched

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
my art encompasses the aesthetics in every regard. I believe my obscure knowledge of the individual parts makes my presentation tastefully unique. for example, weaving certain elements of tribal dance into a songs structure. or applying military tactics in a performance piece. tangible graffiti. I’m most excited about the future of artists here in Dallas. We truly deserve a moment to genuinely showcase our culture. In short.i believe I got here by having the talent and never being complacent with that talent. always proving to myself I can achieve anything. of course it’s not easy. theres so much insecurity and doubt that comes from believing in yourself and presenting your beliefs to be judged.. but I’ve learned on this path to self actualization that every failure, setback or delay is another chance for you to succeed. another chance for you to inspire those around you to try again.. I want the world to know that my story is their story. my brand is their brand. lets get acquainted quickly.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
sheeeesh, Dallas? lol that would depend on the friend 😉

Almost positive we.d spend the first day or so getting my friend as full as possible!. authentic Mexican in east Dallas. to single sushi in uptown.

in all honesty I’d be just as much of a tourist!

theres too many options to specify. my mood changes with the crowd.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Donny Domino has been one of the biggest contributions to my story and deserves an immense amount of credit on his own.
