Elijah presents ‘Yellow Squares’


Masterclass: ‘Close the app, make the thing’

In the summer of 2021, grime artist and founder of influential label Butterz Elijah posted a simple and radical image to his instagram: a yellow square with a short sentence written on it. From this first virtual post-it was born ‘Yellow Squares’. Using this simple graphic tool, Elijah has shared reflections, questions and advice on the creative process, the mental challenges of being an artist, navigating the music business, using social media to build your career, and countless other themes. At Sónar+D 2023, he’ll bring Yellow Squares to the stage for an interactive session, helping the audience learn how to ‘Close the app, make the thing’, amongst other ideas.
