Question 9: What do you find inspiring as an artist?
My work is inspired by life itself, everything that it comprises, it’s flowers, it’s people… I’m very close to artists as well. I follow what’s being done by artists all over the world. I read every art magazine available so I’m up-to-date on all the artistic trends that operate in the universe. All this has an influence on me of course, because these people are in the same field as me and are developing techniques or attitudes that are different. All this information is organized in my own computer, in my mind and my body, and is later translated in a piece of art. Everything has influence on me, friends, people, poetry, music. I have very peculiar tastes in music and in poetry as well, and I read a lot of poetry and I listen to a lot of music. It’s as if they feed the body to create this bodily energy that is transmitted in a painting.
