This month, we spotlight local artist ORFIN and find out what type of art he specializes in and how cannabis plays a role in his work.

VEGAS CANNABIS: What led you to become an artist?

ORFIN: Growing up in Las Vegas was a difficult journey and I found that art was a way to express myself and channel my energy in a positive direction.

VCM: What type of art do you specialize in?

ORFIN: I work through many mediums, specializing in fine art paintings, murals and graphic design.

VCM: How would you describe your art?

ORFIN: My artist name is ORFIN which stands for Original Finish, I aim to always create innovative art that is unique and progressive. Through the ancient masonic tradition of symbolism, I affect the masses without directly speaking to the viewer.

VCM: Do you have a studio or gallery here locally?

ORFIN: My studio is based out of my home. I am currently displaying a painting in the Think Art Gallery at Spring Hill Suites; later this year I will be displaying artwork in the gallery at the Enterprise Library.

VCM: Do you consume cannabis? If so, what part does it play in your work as an artist? And, do you have a favorite strain?

ORFIN: Yes, I am a medical marijuana patient. Cannabis definitely helps to keep me focused and with the inspiration process. My favorite strain is Tangerine Power. I love terps!

VCM: You just participated in the Glass Vegas show – tell us about that.

ORFIN: It was a great show with an awesome turn out! I got to see a lot of familiar faces as well as the opportunity to meet new colleagues! It was exciting to paint live and show others the possibilities in my artwork!

VCM: You are one of the March artists at Colorful Cannabis. Any idea what type of painting you will be teaching?

ORFIN: I love to capture the energy of the crowd and moment and usually don’t decide until the event what I will be painting.

VCM: Any inspiring words for our readers or recommendations for young people trying to break into the art scene?

ORFIN: Always keep pushing forward, don’t underestimate the power of a small step! For young artists, I recommend hard work and determination. Don’t let others influence you or discourage your passion!
