We’re excited to announce that Rica Shay is our featured artist for Issue (01) of Elska Magazine. Each issue contains an interview and pictoral with a gay or gay-icon artist, someone with integrity, passion and heart, someone like the lovely nomadic writer-rapper-dancer-poet Rica Shay.
I stumbled across him quite randomly online and decided to check out his music. Once I saw his eccentric cover of Peaches’s “Mommy Complex”, I had to contact him and try to arrange an interview. With me based in London and him (according to his bio) based in LA, it might have been tricky, but he got back to me within 10 minutes of my message to say that he was also in London. I had to be quick though, as he was off to Paris the next morning, so he came to my place, we knocked out some shots in my living room, did an interview, and then went to Bodean’s Clapham for BBQ lunch.
