Continue reading for MMSCENE interview with Lazar Dedic:
How were you discovered?
Lazar: Basically i saw an ad on social media about an open casting for an agency I’ve already been following for some time. After some thinking and advice from friends and family I decided to try to apply. Been growing along with my team ever since.
Was modeling something you always dreamed of doing?
Lazar: The thing is I didn’t think so for the longest time, but I think that is only because it seemed like something so far out of reach. In hindsight it has definitely been on my mind for years and I am so thankful that I went along with it.
How would you describe your personal style?
Lazar: Adjustable, most of the times I wear things I like at the moment, so to pinpoint something would be hard. However I always had a thing for dark and oversized clothing with a hint or a detail that resonates with my culture, current state of mind or artistic interest.
Describe to us your go to outfit.
Lazar: A dress shirt under a parka or a long coat. I see potential in quality running shoes so i would wear them with a pair of relaxed pants. Finish the outfit with a messenger bag for practicality and jewelry for some luxury. Simple, but effective.
What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Lazar: Creating any form of art, in the most cases digital. I enjoy the process of creating in itself, but the thing I love more is being able to reflect on it and be reminded of my mind state at that moment of making something. As well as seeing how i grew mentally and artistically from my earlier work.
What’s on your playlist?
Lazar: Hip hop and techno have always and always will be a part of my playlist. Some of the artists I have been listening to in the past few months are Lausse The Cat, Flume and Gucci Mane.
What are your future goals, dreams and plans?
Lazar: Being someone that constantly has to be stimulated in some way, sedentary lifestyle doesn’t seem like something i would strive to achieve. So naturally i want to travel a lot, get acknowledged and paid for things I truly enjoy doing, explore cultures and meet people. Graduate college and be in control of my life and decisions as much as it’s possible.
