The multi-talented, multi-hyphenate creative human Grimes, AKA Claire Boucher, has long paired her music with original artwork, drawing several of her own album covers, gig flyers, and even a cover for comic The Wicked + The Divine. In recognition of her passion for visual art, and without wanting to "spam people on my main account," she has now set up a separant Insta handle for her own artwork and her favorite fan art, @grimesartofficial.
"I will post my own illustrations but prob mostly sick fan art like this," she writes alongside a concert poster sent to her by a fan (@kumbricwitch). "I'm sad show posters [are] kind of an obsolete medium [with] promotions on the internet these days, but I just love fonts illustrations and music uniting in an image and I love having memories of shows," she adds.
