Jesse Kanda, the London-based visual artist who works closely with FADER cover stars Arca and FKA Twigs, stands a chance to win a Grammy tonight for his work on Twigs' LP1. Though Kanda has kept it on the DL, he's up for a golden statue in the Best Recording Package category—which is amazing news! Back in 2014, Kanda spoke to FADER about the confidence, sexuality and spontaneous accidents that make his work so special: "In my work, I try my best to make every decision count and mean something. It's often minimal, but it makes whatever is there mean more." Read that here, and get familiar with Kanda's unmatchable LP1 sleeve art before the Grammys kick off. Big ups, Jesse!
