La Conversation with Frederick M. : An Insight into the Brilliant World of Visual Aesthetics

Start-up Grind Tokyo brings to you Frederick M. on November 16th, to take you on journey of the other side of camera, what it takes to make a visual campaign look drool worthy.

Every art is seduction and every seduction has a power to influence. Frederick is using this very power to highlight the plight of minority communities in developed worlds. Through his satirical visual creations, Frederick has been able to get the point across for 'Black Lives Matter'.
