Question 3: When did you begin to actively create art?


I’ve always painted – I was twelve when I painted for that priest. I’ve always painted, I organized the first exhibition of architecture, first exhibition of architecture students, I organized the exhibition of those who also painted. I was always painting. I have always practiced. All along, even with my practice in architecture, I was also doing paintings at night; I had my painting studio and was always working at painting as part of my regular activities. It was part of who I was but I wasn’t aware that it was an activity that meant more to me than the other. It was only later that I found out that in architecture you have to be a business man as well, and I didn’t want to be a business man. So I branched off into another career.
