-In all forms of art, inspiration is crucial. What inspires you and how does that end up in your art?
I think every single moment inspired me, every situation, experience, person that you have met, conversations, trips…. Everything is part of me and is recorded on my subconscious. So I get inspiration from every single thing even if I am not conscience of it.
Maybe because I love ancients cultures from different part of the world, and the different meanings of colors in all of them, different uses from masks worldwide… This kind of inspirations are more obvious on my work. But everything that is around me and interacts with me is inspiring.
-What is the hardest part while working on a piece of art?
Decide when the piece is finish, because for me the most important thing of a piece is the research, the process , may are this moments when I enjoy more the piece.
-Do you have any artist(s) you admire? Can you pinpoint what it is that makes them so special for you?
I can’t say that I have an artist that admire, because sometimes after admire you can idolize, and this is not a good thing.
I respect and like the work of so many artists, and also the way that some of them have evolved as artists. Most of the times I try to meet them in person
-Which cities are the most inspiring for you as an artist?
I don’t know if cities inspire me. I think it is more related with the people that surrounds you in the different places in different situations, or their cultures or ways of life. But I think I can point some places: Melbourne, Bali, Mexico, Barcelona, Tokyo, Beijing, Athens
-What other passions do you have apart from art?
Listen music, writing, cook, travel, trekking.
-Do you have a special project that you hope to achieve some day?
Many, but secrets ones ahaha
-Tell us a bit more about your art; does it include symbolism, messages or repeated patterns? How has it evolved?
I think every piece I create is a different world and tells or express something different from me or about specific theme I am working on.
For my most pictoric and figurative line of work, I like to use ethnic patterns, elements from ancient cultures adapted to nowadays and esoteric symbolism, always there is a message on my paintings.
On my abstract artworks, I use my inspirations from the landscape, nature, native plants, people, customs and cultures, from different places that i visit to créate different compositions and paterns.
My Works have evolved with me, i evolved as a person and my percepción of everything has changed, so my art has evolved with me. Also my “artistic” skills has improved with the years because i never stop creating and researching.
– How long time does your art work, on walls, usually survive for?
It usually depends, it is really difficult to know how long a mural painting stays in a wall. Depends of the project, or if the wall get cover after some years, if the wall is directly on the sun…
I have a mural painted 16 years ago that still there, and others that a month later are gone. I wish that my murals stay forever but if they disappear, is ok, is part of the process and the life of the environment.
-What do you think, people feel or think of, when they see one of your works on the street?
I don`t really know, I would like to think that they feel something or make them question theirself about different matters.
When I create a work, I do it because I need to do it and I need to express something. I don`t question myself if the people would like it or not, because I think if I start to do this, my artworks would change totally and for me is not going to be interesting anymore
-What are your creative plans for the future?
Now that I have a stable studio again, I will work in a new line of sculptures mixing object from the pure nature and new technologies, also start to paint and create a new line of canvas and murals… but still on the research process
-Is there a little wish you have that not many people know about?
To do the Milford Track in New Zealand!
-Is there a specific thought or message you would like to pass to our audience out there?
Be creative is one of the most beautiful things, doesn’t matter the field. Never let somebody or something stop you!
-Thank you! It’s been great to get to know more about the mind behind such talented works.
