1. If you could meet any artist (past/present) who would it be? And why?
I would love to meet Shaun Tan, I'm a big fan of his work. I would like to know more about his imaginary worlds and his characters, he creates wonderful atmospheres. It's simply extraordinary.
2. Did your childhood environment have any influence on your creativity?
The truth is that no, my childhood hasn't had much to do. Yes, I liked to make crafts and draw a lot, especially portraits, but my environment isn't that it encouraged me. It was something more personal and internal.
3. Do you have any tips or inspiring words for others?
Work hard and constant. But always enjoying, not forcing to do it. The important thing is to enjoy what you do without pressuring yourself too much.
4. What does "being creative" mean to you?
For me "being creative" is the ability to create different feelings and reactions through all kinds of artistic expression.
5. On a lighter note what Muppet character best fits your personality? And why?
Haha the truth, I wouldn't know how to answer very well. Maybe my personality would be linked to Rowlf the dog because of having a calm and peaceful spirit.
