The Juan Maclean by Kailyn Kent


Artist Kailyn Kent goes to shows and draws what she sees as it happens. “I don’t use photographs, and draw the shows live, as the musicians are playing,” she explains. “I sometimes incorporate synesthesiatic elements, ‘picturing’ the music, into the drawings.” Last night Kent was at the House Of Vans to cover a show by Special Disco Version, James Murphy’s new project with Pat Mahoney, as well as DJ sets by the Juan Maclean and Midnight Surfer. Here’s what she came up with.
