Thank you for speaking to us about your art journey. Where did it all begin for you?
Practically since I was three years old, when they gave me my first box of colour pencils. My second stage as an artist came when attending the art school in my hometown, where I studied painting, art history and artistic drawing.
From who or from where do you draw inspiration for your work?
My three great inspires are: music, medieval art, and the paintings by the Spanish – Catalan artist Joan Miro.
Do you like to experiment with what you use to create art and how would you describe your artistic style?
It is called contemporary art, shape design and philosophy of colour. In my works I try to give another shape to objects known in decorative art, such as; flowers or still life, and I try to experiment with the intense colours.
Why are your designs so different to other artists within the industry?
I do not think that my designs are so different from the others because in the Art world it is almost impossible to create something absolutely different. Our brains are always looking for the known visual facts. In case of my creations it is only an experiment with forms as basic flowers. Yes, I am experimenting with shapes and colours. Many artists are on the same path of finding something new within the known and traditional facts.
How do you stay relevant and current in a world full of creatives?
Whatever you do you can only be contemporary. Being true to your own ideas and style is the most important thing for an Art creator.
How has social media impacted on you as judging by your online presence you seem to embrace this?
I am, like most painters, an introvert person. Social Media have offered us this wonderful opportunity to go out into the world with our works but without physically leaving our studios.
How has your brand grown to where it is now? What has contributed to your success?
A year ago I started creating my own website with its own shop and owned portfolio, artistic projects and other services, such as; photography, tattoo and even Art Insurance at Lloyd’s. And finally this year, during July, I have an excellent opportunity to participate in the Sussex Art Fair.
Have you worked with any galleries or brands or completed any important commissions you can share with us?
Last year, during lock-down, has given me the most precious thing that an artist can receive: the possibility of creating. On the other hand, I started my work duties as voluntary collaborator at “Ideas Hub Chelmsford” and their project of a space for local artists within The ART Place – Chelmsford. In the last four months we have organized and supervised 4 exhibition projects with students from Writtle University, where I have been the ART Curator for them.
Which projects are you really excited about for 2021 and are there any future plans you can share with us?
My next artistic project is called “Apothecary”, which investigates the mystery of essential transformations of natural remedies from a chemical or alchemist point of view. This is going to be a series of acrylic paintings, which for me is a new medium.
