We had the good fortune of connecting with Dävid Fish and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dävid, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I have always been an artistic and creative individual ever since I can remember. My creativity brought me from acting onstage, to designing and sewing couture fashion, working as a professional makeup artist on various sets, to styling wigs, and so much more. It only seemed right to turn the passions that came naturally to me, into an all-around brand and one-stop-shop for all things art, that I could share with the world.
Where film meets music, meets fashion, meets glamour, meets LOVE:
Häus of Fish by DÄViDATiOUS!™️

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
One thing about my art, is that it always comes from a place of passion, from following my heART. That is why it has taken me in so many different directions: from mixing music, to designing and sewing clothing, doing makeup and hair, to interior design, to acting. I am the one-stop-shop for everything image, glamour, music, art, and fashion.

I go where the wind takes me. I don’t like to push or force the process just for the sake of doing. There has to be inspiration behind what I do. This is what allows me to put 100% of myself into my creations. Which is what makes all of my projects truly unique and one of a kind.

I got to where I am today professionally by never giving up on, or losing sight of my dreams. I don’t take “no” for an answer, and if one door closes in my face, I’ll knock on 100 more.

There are so many obstacles you will face on the path to greatness, but you have to keep your eyes on the prize. When people didn’t believe in me or my dreams, I used that as fuel to strive even harder for them. If you see it for yourself, what everybody else sees for you doesn’t even matter. Envision it, manifest it, believe it, take it. The life you dream of, is yours for the taking. And you cannot allow anybody to stand in the way of that.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Monday evening we will start out the week strong with a fabulously entertaining drag show at Micky’s in West Hollywood, featuring several cast members from the Emmy Award-winning “RuPaul’s Drag Race”.

Tuesday: One of my all time FAVORITE restaurants in Los Angeles is HOME Restaurant in Los Feliz. There are so many different food options to choose from, and they are all delicious. The vibe and atmosphere is fantastic as well.

Wednesday morning we catch some fresh air and great views of the Hollywood sign and the rest of the city of Los Angeles with a nice hike up Runyon Canyon or Griffith Observatory.

Thursday: Enjoy a tasty dinner and cocktails at Spire 73 Rooftop Lounge with a great ambiance and amazing 360 views of the entire downtown Los Angeles skyline.

Friday night we’ll hit Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, the secret speakeasy at the bottom of the LINE Hotel in Mid-Wilshire. You’ll pass the wall of golden butterflies, and enter the building through an ATM machine, into a fascinating bar full of mirrors, disco balls, and many other unique elements. This is definitely a spot you want to check out before you leave LA!

Saturday’s recovery mode will feature an All-You-Can-Eat Korean BBQ at MooDaePo II Restaurant in Koreatown. It’s a fun social experience to share with friends, while cooking your food together on the grill in front of you. The meat is great quality and tastes amazing. And they have some really cool drinks as well.

To finish off the week, Sunday we can stroll through the shops and street shows on Venice Beach. Grab some mimosas at one of the restaurants on the strip. And relax on the beach while watching the sun set.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
As cliché as it may be, I have to first give thanks and praise to God, Allah, Higher Power, the Universe, whatever you want to call it.. for even thinking the way I do, and seeing everything through a creative and symbolic lens. For taking darkness, not as a setback, but as inspiration for light in art form.

I have to send all my love out to my family, (both blood and chosen):
my son, Chosen Boatright,
my sisters, Gia Banks Tisci, Kate Pasion, and Korey Miyolko Milan,
my brothers, Evan Kent Allure and Detric

All of my other incredible friends, and of course my handsome little four-legged fur baby, Louis.
..for always supporting me, uplifting me, keeping me sane, seeing the best in me, even when I forget how to see it in myself. And reminding me of who I am. They inspire me to be the very best version of myself, to stay focused on my dreams, and to remember my value and worth. And without them, I would not be the person I am today.

Finally, I also want to give a special Shout Out to my MUTHA, TS Madison. Madison was one of the first celebrity clients that ever gave me a chance back when I first moved to Southern California in 2013. As a mostly self-taught makeup and hair artist, I had no real resumé at the time, and she was still willing to give me a shot. Our professional relationship instantly blossomed into a genuine friendship, and the love and appreciation I have for her, as well as the rest of my chosen family, cannot be put into words.
Sometimes all it takes is that one person who believes in you, to open up a whole new realm of possibilities. And you never know whom that person may be.♥️
