I was recently introduced to multi-medium artist Amir Hamed. He shared some of his poetry and art with me and I found it beautiful, expressive, and creative.
In honor of that, I interviewed him to learn more about how he thinks and what inspires him.
What inspires you?
I am typically inspired by the sound of silence, alongside anything that is put in motion, from birds in the sky, to people dancing. Even still photos or any type of art is an inspiration in my daily life. Not to mention lyricists and EDM DJ’s heavily influence my inspiration as well.
How do you cope with the unknown?
I cope with the unknown by channeling my breath. Once I have a grasp on what I can control I remind myself to not let fear control my reactions to that which I am not aware of.
What are you reading these days?
I am currently reading a book called “High Magick” by Phillip H. Farber.
What are you watching these days?
I am currently watching Scooby- Doo Mystery Incorporated on Netflix. It truly brings me childlike joy. I still love a good horror movie from time to time. I also recently watched a few things including Sabrina, The Order, & Dark
What are you listening to these days?
I tend to listen to a lot of Dubstep. I also really enjoy acoustic tracks as well. Anything with piano has my heart from the jump.
Who are some of your favorite authors, poets, artists, dancers, musicians?
As for authors the late Aleister Crowley has been a major influence. Poets I can honestly say I don’t read much poetry but if I had to choose one Edgar Allen Poe. As far as artists Yoshi Yoshitani, and Fabio Listrani. As for Dancers Alessia Leoncina is amazing as well as any and all Rhythmic Gymnasts definitely a favorite of mine. Musicians would include Sherry St. Germain of (Akylla), as well as RIELL, I can also say my DJ buddy’s Jeff, Shayne, and Jay (RMNCE).
What do you hope to impart on people through your artistry?
I hope to impart inspiration, as well as virtue, strength, acknowledgment, universal love, the choice of happiness, and the one that calls to me the most; Transformation.
Where are you from?
I have lived all over I currently reside in good Ole’ Atlanta, Georgia. I was born in upstate central New York and I lived in Vegas for a while. I consider Vegas to be home despite all the intriguing experiences I witnessed.
Where can people find you online?
I am discoverable on Instagram.
Will I go insane?
My mind elevating to a different plane
Grids of light
Never went down without a fight
Surrendering to myself
Focusing on my internal
Well being inside
Confidently knowing I don’t have to hide
Side by side
Masculine divine makes me shine
Feminine empowerment teaching me grace
What truly lies behind each others face
It is an experience worth while
You don’t see just by walking a single mile
A million more to go
No one said to go fast; wearing yourself out so just go slow
Now you’re truly in the flow
Past the idea of limitations
Take a look at all your creations
Transmitting from different space stations
Star seeds unite
Life isn’t about a pension
Linear is not a direction
Everyone deserves affection
Something without an erection
Faster than the speed of light
Strength of might
A heart gone through septic
Virus to thee
We only choose our capacity to see
Depth is an art
Not limited by bounds
Finding my place
What once was a disgrace
An Angel with wings
The silence sings
Exploring each space station
Get ready for the sequel
Rise from the dead
Watch them all turn a head
Looking for solace
Protection for all
Nobody stands a chance
Warping my mind
Swimming backwards in time
Full force ahead
Lying in bed
Days like this I do not dread
Was it something that I said?
Nothing can divide
Codes of activation
Take a vacation
No one to run the scene
Play it back!
They will scream
They will cry
No one wants to see anyone else die
That’s what we get for living a lie
Call it a tie
Using the truth to uncover
So much more to discover
Take my hand let’s fly
Say our goodbyes
Here come the tides
No more disguise
Party to earth
Light the hearth
Burn the man
This was a master plan
Collectives of all backgrounds and race
Nothing left to chase
Floating in infinite space
Just a human face
Changing with the moon
Nothing comes too late or too soon
Blazing like the sun
We are one
