Everybody at the big festivals knows Mr. Pink. He is half naked and painted in pink and jumps out the crowd as if he emerged from another dimension. Tens of thousands of festival people have seen him – from Boom, Ozora to Burning Man.Who is the guy behind the body color?

Your real name is Jovis and you are from the United States. How did you grow up to become what you are now?

I always loved art and I was always a bit of an actor. At 29 I went to India and that just speeded up the process of self discovery through art.

Why did you chose the color pink? Does it has a a symbolic character for you?

Pink is very high visibility. It’s also easier to carry one paint. For me pink represents love, and specifically self love.

When you are Mr. Pink what kind of performances do you do?

My performances are very interactive. Actually without someone to mirror there is no performance. I’m merely a puppet, people show me what to do.

What was the funniest experience you had when performing as Mr. Pink?

My god, there have been literally hundreds! They all are so unique and precious, it would be really hard for me to say which one was the funniest.

What does psytrance mean to you as a producer, artist and DJ?

Pinkster
Pinkster
Liberation from the constraints of the ego thru dancing to high energy psychedelic music. I like funky psychedelia

Got any weird future plans for next year?

Absolutely! I’ll be releasing an EP of my Psytrance music in the beginning of the year. Also I’ll be launching a Mr Pink Youtube channel.
