Why do you do what you do? I think it comes down to passion and fun.
Could you describe your style and how it developed? I dont really want to describe it. I would say it has developed and changed, influenced by the trip I am taking through life.
Where do you get inspiration from? From observing the world around me and actively exposing me to as much as possible and then feeding of the emotions left behind by that.
What is the best part about working within the creative industries? I am not to sure what to even think about the expression „creative industry“. I’d say it is a almost a schizophrenic love/hate relationship. The best part though, would be the platform it creates and the exchange with others you get from that.
What do you wish you knew about your business before you got started? All the dirty little secrets.
Has your style develop/change over the time being active? If yes, how? Sure has, styles evolve as much as you evolve as a person. If i wanted repetitive routine I would have chosen a different path
Who would you like to work with? I will have to quote Jack Kerouac on this one:
„the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars”
What is your idea of success? Being able to spend enough time to with loved ones and my passions without distractions
Is there a message that you are trying to portray through your work? Quite simply, I want to convey emotions.
Do you believe it is important to raise artistic awareness in your country? yes
In your opinion, how important is it to culturally educate through art? I think true art is the result from the process of growing and learning as sentient beings. You must grow, learn and feel in order to perceive and understand art. Art in all its forms, is a medium to store and showcase the collective mental and emotional state of us as a social and self aware species we became to be. Education through art is important but i dont think it is a form of education that can be brought upon us by others. It’s an education from within.
