Question 12: Are there any noteworthy events that influenced your career?


No, I don’t know what you mean by a noteworthy event. Let’s say that because I paint everyday life, what goes on from day to day. So certainly when something major happens… Let’s say that lately, well, several of my friends have started dying off. It’s a given that if I start visiting them at the hospitals, well it follows that it’s more or less what will go into my paintings, that’s what I do, people dying in hospitals, passing away as they say. I think that’s about the only thing that I can think of at the moment.
