GODZINE is a DIY/self-taught outsider-creator based in Chicago.
They are motivated, inspired, and informed by things such as:
Their experience growing up with Hinduism, their experience with ASD & depression, their experience with gender dysphoria, their deep love of language & culture, underexposed history, analogue tools, radical/leftist/anarchist thought, and much, much more
Although their parents also raised them on genres such as Hip Hop, ‘Alternative’, Reggae, and R&B as a kid, the primary influence from their parents ended up being (Hardcore) Punk music, as well as its ethos & DIY ethics. As with their spiritual upbringing, Punk has not only helped to inform some of their visual styles & subject matter, but also the values, intentions, and processes behind their creations.
Extended bio coming soon.
