About the Artist

Perry Porter
(Perry Paints)


How long have you been making art?

Perry: I’ve been making art since I could remember. From drawing on walls, painting on clothes to banging on drums pads. I can’t remember a time I wasn’t making something.

Do you have any sort of technical background?

Perry: Musically, yes. I was a band geek growing up. Visually? Not so much. I took some art classes in college, going for business/graphic design, then dropped out shortly after.... (laughs)

What are some of your favorite projects you have done?

Perry: My albums. The BLM mural (Capitol Hill, Seattle) with the VMC, Garfield High School, the video game placements and this project with Heylo, of course.

Can you describe your inspiration for the VOLUME 3 art? 

Perry: I wanted to achieve something tropical. Sunflowers and mangos are some of my favorite flowers and fruit. I wanted to keep “flower” the main focus, but to give it a sweet, fruity vibe without having any fruit insight. 

What was your experience consuming VOLUME 3? 

Perry: It was groovy and light. I was mad giggling and had the energy to create all day on V3.

What feelings do you hope to invoke with your art overall, and in particular the art for VOLUME 3?

Perry: Fun and dreamy. I want people to feel light and sweet. We’ll call that feeling "candy paint".

What are some of your favorite activities to do whilst enjoying cannabis?

Making music for sure. Watercolor sketches 'cause I get lost in how the color plays within the water and dancing. I love dancing... COVID kinda killed that though... (laughs)

Where can people see your art in the Seattle area? 

Cal Anderson Park and Garfield High School.

How would you describe your relationship with cannabis?

That’s my baby!! Perry & Mary for life.

Does cannabis play a role in your creation of music?

Hell yeah. Everyone knows I gotta roll a joint or two before we record anything. (laughs)

Can you tell us a little bit about the playlist you curated for VOLUME 3 and the inspiration behind it?

It’s everything I’ve been listening since working on this project. The vibe that also describes the type of music I've been making for this next album.
