The Canadian singer and musician Grimes is also an artist, it turns out, and she’s unveiling more than a decade’s worth of her visual work in a joint online presentation with Maccarone Los Angeles and GalleryPlatform.LA, a collaborative new online initiative from sixty Los Angeles galleries.

“I made art 10, 12 years before I ever touched a keyboard,” Grimes told Bloomberg. “I see myself as a visual artist first and foremost, and I’ve always felt strange that people know me for music.”

Grimes, who was born Claire Boucher, has hinted at her visual talents in the past. She designs her own tour merchandise and the cover art for all of her albums, and she has teamed up with her brother Mac Boucher to create her music videos.
