About Devendra Banhart
In 2015, when Banhart published a book of drawing and photographs called I Left My Noodle on Ramen Street, the New York Times declared, “Devendra Banhart is exactly the sort of person for whom the term ‘multihyphenate’ was coined…for the last 15 years or so, he has been steadily building, and occasionally exhibiting, a parallel body of work around drawings, paintings and, more recently, photography.” Banhart’s intricate, often whimsical drawings have always served as album covers; his most recent album Ma features, for the first time, one of his oil paintings on the cover.
This spring, Banhart marked another milestone, releasing his first book of poetry, Weeping Gang, Bliss Void, Yab Yum, published by Featherproof Books. In addition, a book of his ink drawings entitled Vanishing Wave, created in response to his travels in Japan shortly after the Tohoku earthquake, was published in April by Anteism Books. An LP of various musicians’ rare and previously unheard demos that Banhart curated, Fragments du Monde Flottant, was released in March. Ma, a rumination on motherhood – and his motherland of Venezuela – finds Banhart at his most intimate and revealing, as he sings in English, Spanish, Portuguese and even a little Japanese. A sincere and cohesive work, it’s been universally acclaimed.
