Minu Freitag’s Crazy-Cute, Joy-Sparking Sprites, by Elizah Leigh

I don’t see myself as somebody others might want to write—or read!—about. This might sound like an attempt at charming self-deprecation. It is not. I have turned being-all-over-the-place into an art form and I am caught in a perpetual not-there-yet stage—I need to become a better writer, a better artist, be a more interesting person before I can come out of my box and be noticed. I am not even sure I want to be noticed …

But … it was a pleasure to be interviewed by Elizah and the resulting article is quite wonderful. So here you go …

the Germany-born, New Zealand-based artist has an insatiable appetite for learning and exploring. As such, she has found that engaging in all of the art – writing, drawing, painting, illustration, printmaking and sculpture – all of the time (!!) eliminates the ‘what ifs’, instead enabling her to manifest imaginatively conceived, joy-sparking whimsies …

In addition to penning a political-post-apocalypse-alternate-reality-dystopian-fantasy-adventure series, Minu Freitag continues to create various utterly charming three-dimensional anthropomorphic beings (plush creatures, wall dolls and free-standing totems) as well as two-dimensional graphite, ink and paint pieces, all of her dreamy entities an extension of the kind and hopeful soul-elevating magic
