How does your work and art change as the world progresses?
Honestly my art has been changing not consequently by the world progressing, but it has been changing by my feelings coming up from my relationships – it’s an intimate approach to art I have. World progress and political changes are bonded to my daily life for sure, but I split the two things, art and daily world life, two different topics which influence myself in two different ways.
What does love mean to you?
Love to me means the core of life, it means to trust in humans, it means sharing.
How do we look past heteronormative expectations of love and see the power of a human connection?
I grew up reading literature about sexuality in Ancient Rome, and I’ve never had any labels about sexuality in my mindset. I grew up looking at graffiti on Pompeii’s walls of people having sex.
What does your work teach us about the power of relationships and the idea we’re all connected and closer than we might first think?
My works would love to teach the core of life which is, in my opinion, love. You cannot live without love – it would be not a good living. Everybody needs somebody.
Tell us about your most inspired piece of work to date that best reflects the real you?
Probably a canvas which its title is Building Humanity, acrylic on canvas 50X70.
