Question 11: Which artists or artistic styles have influenced you? How does this play out, in concrete terms?
The artists who influence me, there are a lot of them, tons, really tons, and it’s difficult to say who exactly. I think that sometimes it’s the artist’s work that I’m interested in; it’s not necessarily the artist who influences me but it’s what I see, it’s the works themselves, the results. In the history of art there are so many, so many who are interesting that I couldn’t exactly say who. I think that everything influences me. Except that when I start to work, I don’t necessarily think of that, so that it may influence me at an unconscious level. Everything I see is part of… everything we see is an influence… in daily life, all the company logos as you walk in the city, or the architecture, the care that somebody brings to dressing to go out. All that is part of what I am.
