Following his recent interviews/talks/inspirational speeches, Kanye West attended Surface Magazine's DesignDialogues panel to discuss his perspective towards art, music, and the direction he wants to follow in his career.

"I thought my opinion wasn't strong enough with what I was painting," Kanye said, when asked about why he chose music instead of art. "When I would see my own work, I never thought I would visually be able to become one of the masters — I thought I had a stronger opinion when I worked on music. I got a stronger response."

When asked about his future projects, Kanye West promptly gave clues about what we should expect of his next album: "It's just reducing down the amount of information that you need. People say a design is the point where you can't take anything else away. [Yeezus] was very, very designed. I took a departure from radio and popular music in order to get this seat here. If I hadn't made Yeezus, I wouldn't be sitting here with this cool font at Basel right here."

This comes as no surprise since Yeezus clearly showed the musician's desire of pursuing a more artistic direction when it comes to music writing and producing.
