Each Month We Feature An Artist That Inspire Us.
This month it Animalitoland | |Buenos Aires / Argentina
1. If you could meet any artist (past/present) who would it be? And why?
I am extremely lucky because painting murals around the world gave me the chance to meet artists whose work I love. But If I could choose someone really far away, it would be Hayao Miyazaki. I’d go for a walk in the forest, and ask him to tell me stories about everything we don’t see. His movies transport me to such a magical and tangible dimension, sometimes I feel I can enter his dreams for a while, and I love it there.
2. Did your childhood environment have any influence on your creative?
Yes, Buenos Aires is huge and busy. Spending hours in public transport to get anywhere is a common thing. That gave my head a lot of free time and space to imagine things. It’s also where the most population is concentrated, so there are all kinds of energy and ideas colliding all the time.
3. Do you have any tips or inspiring words for others?
The more you explore, the more you’ll learn about what you do and don’t like. Find the tune where you feel good, and see the world through that lens. Reality is more flexible than it looks.
4. What does “being creative” mean to you?
Creativity has to do with curiosity and not losing the ability to be amazed. We receive a lot of information from people and books, but also from experience and making mistakes. I believe it’s more important to find out what we want to do or achieve, rather than to know what paths are available. If you have a clear goal or idea, you can build your way into it, even if no one did it before, or if the odds are against you.
5. On a lighter note what Muppet character best fits your personality? And why?
Oh, I didn’t see that show as a kid! I’d relate to the cookie monster because of my addiction to sweets, but I guess that’s from a different show...
