We had the good fortune of connecting with Constantin Le Fou and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Constantin, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
Vegan Club uses art and fashion to inspire the world about veganism.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
After I turned vegan, I started getting upset that my friends, family, and society in general, would not understand the importance of such a simple change, turning vegan. I became very frustrated on a daily basis and after a year of “whining,” I found the solution. Letting out this energy and redirecting to something I enjoy doing so I can help, like fostering a dog, doing art, and getting involved. That’s when I took all of that energy and put it into my art and started doing street art. One step at a time I figured out that I could be a part of the solution by taking small actions. We have to become good examples ourselves and have zero expectations of the outside world. It’s all within, sounds very profound and simple, but it’s something we have to work on every day – it’s easy to get upset with the world.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The beach and then to my home studio where I have the best music instruments you can imagine. I like to share my world with them and let them use my devices to experience my passion first-hand.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to thank Moby, Tony Kanal, Toby Morse, Kat Von D, Joaquin Phoenix, Nina Bergman, Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein, Alissa White-Gluz, Davey Havok, Matt Skiba, and my friends Tony Christopoulos in LA and Anthony Proetta in NY for their ongoing support and dedication. Of course all of my fans and supporters and my assistants, Cindy Melendez, and Svetlana Penrose, for the amazing work and help. Thousand thanks to my mother Maria who always was supportive of everything I do.
I want to credit my inspirations, Billie Eilish, Joaquin Phoenix, and Moby.
