feature: fka twigs enchants on the cover of wonderland magazine’s anniversary issue

October 30, 2015

Take a look at FKA twigs entrancing Wonderland editorial (the magazine’s 10th anniversary cover star). Interviewed for the magazine by visual artist Matthew Stone (who shot the photostory), the British performer revealed: “I think that a lot of my work is just based off feelings, so when I make a piece of music it tells me how I should feel, and then that feeling will create an image. I never really stray away from that image. If I make a piece of music, for example “Papi Pacify”, I always had this idea that it had to be hands down the throat. So it was always that movement, from when I first made the song. Even though the video might not be made for six months or a year, I can’t get that image out of my head.” Explore the editorial below (featuring dancers Jarrod Kentrell, Ryan G, Kaner, Mamadou and Ryan H).
