Jago Prates

Jago Prates, Staff Writer

From painting a skull on his pants to creating art on his hoodie to making music with a mixture of film and electronic sounds, you can say that Jago Prates is quite the creative type. 

During the initial quarantine for Covid-19, Jago picked up a new hobby, painting. Jago explains that before quarantine he did not do much painting, but that he really took to it once the time presented itself. “I never really took the time to paint stuff so once quarantine hit and I had all this time on my hands, I looked at a hoodie and I was like 'I can put something on this,’ and I did it and it was fun and I was like ‘Oh, my God!’ and then I did it again.” This painting on clothes became something he continued, which is sometimes evident on what he is wearing. 

Staying on the creative side, Jago spends his free time creating music, which is something he has been doing since he was 12. It started off by just making electronic music, and then it elevated to electronic mixed with film scores. He makes sures his music “has a deeper meaning, even if it is just instrumental- something about being human.” One thing about Jago: he makes you feel relatable whether that is through his music or just by talking with you.

 As for what motivates him in life, that has to be hope. Jago knows that certain things in life are  possible and he holds strong to  the idea that one day he can be whatever he wants. This is what keeps him going. For someone who is pretty young, Jago sure has a grown up way of thinking about life. Jago’s optimistic thinking and calm nature will, without a doubt, aid him in his success in getting the things he hopes  for in life.
