Question 3: When did you begin to actively create art?
With Doctor Laporte, at the age of 17, I was making sculptures and creations. In the beginning my work could have been classified as arts and crafts. But by the time I was 16 or 17, I had started creating my own compositions. I can say that was the beginning, and was what made me understand that art was not just technique, but also the capacity to create personal things, things that had not been created by others. Because I just despised… at that time, I understood that stupidly copying a work might be technically interesting and often more appreciated by the public, but I knew at that time that wasn’t the goal of art. The goal of art is to contribute new elements to the world of visual expression.
