1-How would you describe yourself? And your Artwork?
I believe that my Artwork and I are One. There is a fusion between my soul, my feelings and the colors and forms on my canvas. I dive whenever I’m painting, into this beautiful perfect world, a parallel Universe where colors and emotions are Absolute and Free.
2-What is your definition of Art?
Art is the world seen in its true Dimension. A Dimension without Gravity, where there is no limits, no rules nor conventions, not even ethics. It’s a world of pure sensations free in expression.
3-Where do you get your inspiration?
My inspiration comes from everything surrounding me, my everyday life experience, people that I meet from different countries, Monuments that I visit, philosophical Books that I read… All this becomes feelings and emotions that vibrate in high speed to transform all the Chaos in my surroundings into Purity on my Canvas.
4-How do you deal with artist’s block?
I feel that I have too much to give, and my mind is always full with new ideas waiting to turn into form. My colors are just a way of expression. I never really calculate or think what I’m doing because I feel a certain Trans between my body and soul. I don’t question my painting as good or bad.”It just is”, and what it is, is meant to be. I don’t search for others approval on what I paint, and I always challenge myself to find new ways of expression. For me Art is a game of Passion, and when I have a block, it is part of the game, I have only to step over it and continue my journey.
5-Can you tell us what your ” Before I die” is?
I never think of death. For me dying is part of the procedure of life. We will all die one day. I live the present moment to its maximum, knowing that I can’t change the past, and, the future is an Enigma. I focus on trying to be a better person , I keep on learning and try to help others as much as I can. My “before I die ” would be to make sure that every child in this world is happy , warm and loved.
I wish to put an end to War, starvation, Agony and Suffering, and replace it with Love, Hope and Worldwide Peace.
