1. If you could meet any artist (past/present) who would it be? And Why?
The prehistoric men who painted the caves of Lascaux (in France), these men have created art. The rest is just evolution.
2. Did your childhood environment have any influence on your creativity?
I think that whatever, we are surely influenced by our experience, whether it is conscious or not. What I know is that I have always been drawn to the image, I still have memories (when I was around 5 years old) where I was stuck looking at an illustration for 10 minutes. Moreover, very early I have been interested by drawing and had an ideal in mind. It was to draw effortlessly, spontaneously. It took me maybe 20 years but today even though I still want to go further, I didn't think I would be here today in my style.
3. What subjects inspire you?
What inspires me the most is to transmit an emotion, that it is captivated in its entirety and transmitted at first glance to the viewer. My favorite subjects are therefore portraits for the emotion, as well as the illustration of sports for the energy.
4. What does "being creatives" mean to you?
What I have been instructed at school, when you draw something or someone, you have to look at it as if you discover it for the first time, and draw it from an unknown point of view. Forgetting your drawing knowledge and produce, without hesitation and with sincerity. Without ever being inspired by something already done. Even with very little knowledge in academic drawing, we can produce super-be artistic things.
5. Do you have any tips or inspiring words for others?
Draw with pleasure every day, without ever being influenced by existing styles or trend, and over time your own style will come to you. Being unique is the key of success in freelancing.
