General | Latest Info

Vashtie Kola is a truly renaissance woman-New York base Model, Director, Filmmaker, Artist, Designer, Creative Consultant and DJ. She has cultivated the Downtown New York City scene for over a decade as a style icon, but her curatorial outreach and influence spanned worldwide. She moves easily among fashion, film and music; she has emerged as a role model for young tastemakers, as New York Times title her when they write about her in the Style section feature profile. Black Enterprise coin her Vashtie Kola: Curator of Cool. Vashtie is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts where she studies Film. She grew up in Albany, New York as a first generation American of Trinidadian heritage. From an early age, Vashtie found ways to create options when she felt like she didnt fit in or lacked economic means. She worked in an Albany tattoo parlor as a young teenager and dreamed of going to Film School. When you are alienated for being different, you begin to be unafraid of who you want to be. I am comfortable with being creative. It allows me to say, you guys think I am weird and I am going to do what I am going to do. I was always interested in meeting new people and being different. Vashtie was attracted to skateboarding, hip hop and punk rock hallmarks of counter culture that would cultivate her path. It was art and it was creative and it was a way to touch a lot of people all at once. I want to make art that will inspire other people. When she established herself in New York in 1999, she found her way to places like the legendary Supreme skate shop on Lafayette. In East Village, where she fell into the vibrant DIY scene. The Avante garde press soon declared her Downtowns Sweetheart. Vashtie quickly grew to be a multi-disciplinary force melding art and style with her original and refreshing perspective. Im good representation of culture in this strange digital era, say Vashtie. Vashtie has directed videos for Justin Bieber, Kid Cudi, Gym Class Heroes, Theophilus London, Solange, Jadakiss and more. She directed Bieber's first Music Video in 2009, which featured Usher. She directs commercial campaigns for the Pepsi Refresh Program that star will. Iam and featured LMFAO, which aired at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. Her most recent projects include music videos for Big KRIT Joey Bada {matheq}(“Waves”) and Kendrick Lamar (“ADHD”.) Her work, at times, investigates social issues, including the music video for Joey Bada{endmatheq} that expose tactics of stop and frisk in America. Vashtie's approach to art form of Music Video ranges from surreal to stripped-down, monochromatic and raw. I like to think that it's super organic and feels right by artist. I've been creating a sense of loneliness in my recent work, she say. She has also directed several short films, including one, which stars Kid Cudi. Vashties domain is expansive, but her approach incorporates core sensibility that marry cosmopolitan to unhinged street aesthetic, which is why Time Out New York once named her Most Stylish New Yorker.
