Michel's booking representative David Butterfield contacted me and suggested Michel for an interview. Michel took time out of his busy schedule to do a quick interview with Culture Fancier.
1. You have a very diverse artistic background that includes songwriting, composing, painting, writing, and moviemaking. Is there one medium that you prefer or think that you excel at over the others?
They all interact on an equal basis to evolve the consciousness.
2. Do you think it's necessary to have a formal education in order to be an artist?
Formal education can be helpful for artwork but is not fundamentally necessary to be an artist.
