Interview with KAMERIAN

q)Walk us through an intimate day in your life

a)I work as a graphic designer during daytime.
I am designing mainly about erotic books and erotic videos such as adults.
On the other hand, I also work as an artist.
I am making art works  after work is over and holidays.

q) Where did you grow up/where do you live now and how does that contribute to your art?

a)I was born in Tokyo and brought up in Tokyo.
I grew up in the countryside, not in the city center of Tokyo.
Because it is the country side, nature is rich. I grew up fishing crayfish in the river.
Tokyo is narrow, it can easily go out to the city center. I think that it is an exciting city as various cultures are mixed together and show a completely different color for each city.
Japanese chaotic culture has a great influence on my production as well.
I get inspiration from manga and tattoo, 
I think that Tokyo is suitable for obtaining such information.

q) What is your earliest memory that propelled you to create?

a)I have always liked drawing since long ago.
I was an introverted personality. I was just doodling on the desk.
I love to draw pictures because my mother's caricature was praised.

q) Tell us a little bit about your creative process.

a)The theme that I made a part of my work is "childish and violent".
Recently I've been handling "greed" and making works.
I print the things worked digitally and add effects by screen print.

q) How do you wish for your art to be perceived?

a)Tragic things are often happening in my art work.
It is "death", "violence" and "adultery".
People who saw them may think that 'poor thing' and 'horrible'.
However, the scene in the picture is what is repeatedly done everyday in our life.
Humans are cruel and take other lives.

Because they are alive.

"Greed" is an indispensable energy to live.
What I am painting is the image of desperate "life" to live ugly and to live.

q) What do your internal dialogues sound like?

a)I always make dialogues with myself as to what to draw and what color it is.
Since color is a very important element in my work, the amount of dialogue is especially large.

q) Do you feel that there are limitations to what you want to create?

a)As of now I am promoting a figure project, but Ideally I would like to also produce very enormous three dimensional works.
However, because of the enormous budget, I think there is a limit in that sense.

q) Do you feel art is vital to survival and if so, why?

a)I think that ART is necessary.
ART is a proof that humans lived, and also has an important role to understand that era.

q) Describe a world without art.

a)The world without ART is like a pizza with no cheese.

q) Tell us a secret, and obsession.

a)Not particularly

q) Where can people see more of your work on the internet?

a)My home page is here.

I will have a solo exhibition in Switzerland from October.
 Everyone in Europe please come and visit!

Léo Maximus

Born in Paris in 1975, Leo Maximus draws since childhood. He studied drawing, graphics, fashion design and design textile. After working for Haute Couture, Leo thought he was not done for the job. He left drawing and started a career in entertainment and the world of show business. He became artistic coach. A few years ago, Leo took his brushes back and never left them since. Hesitating first, he was quickly encouraged to go on. The more he worked on his technic, the more his thirst for excellency increased. Today Leo lives in Pigalle next to the famous Moulin Rouge. He is a workaholic always improving his touch. On request, he makes the portraits of private individuals, drawings of bills for the famous parisian cabarets or elsewhere. Leo is often asked by the artistic community, singers, dancers, musicians, transformists. He is very close to burlesque and the parisian nights. Great artists like the photographers Pierre et Gilles or the former French star singer of the 80s Desirless, ask Leo for his services. He has impressed American art collectors. Leo suffers of not being able to answer to all requests. He would like to do everything, He needs also to make personal artwork for himself. His universe is inspired by passed worlds, his souvenirs as a child, by the tales of his Italian grand parents. His inspired by lots of supports, like a glorious past, ancient post cards, old posters, films, songs. He works hard to give a certain charm to male nudity in an old fashioned and distinguished way. Leo prefers elegance to vulgarity, sophistication to commonness, suggestion to raw. He has a strong and determined character but his work overflows with softness, delicacy and sensuality, as much as a sweet tender kiss given in the shadow of a popular tree.

Interview with ROWAN NEWTON

q)Walk us through an intimate day in your life

a)  I get up everyday at 7am without exception. I then make myself a large substantial breakfast involving cereal, fruit, vegetables, a couple of eggs and a smoothie. This meal sets me up for the day.
Then I do an hour of emails and social media posting. Followed by an hour in the gym.
Once back from the gym I jump into the shower and then head down to the studio. So I usually get to the studio about half 10am.
Then it’s a straight 7 hours of painting, with a lunch break about 2pm.
Then its back home where I will cook myself dinner. My time cooking and in the gym is like my own therapeutic time to think about things that isn’t painting. I may still be thinking about art but it will be more my ideas and what I want to communicate rather then how to paint. Once I’ve finished cooking and eating its back to the computer for a night of more emails and some sketching. I go to sleep about 11pm and do the same all over again the next day, its never ending.

q) Where did you grow up/where do you live now and how does that contribute to your art?

a) I grew up in Brixton during the 80’s surrounded by hip-hop, graffiti and break dancing. So yeah it definitely shaped my are career today. Brixton had a vibe and the people there had a go getter energy. Now I live in Greenwich, which is a lot more chilled. But London as a whole is all the inspiration for my work.  From the billboards advertisements, to the sound the people the street art, the complexity of a city, the list goes on and on.

q) What is your earliest memory that propelled you to create?

a) My art started with me relentlessly copying the Marvel comics my Dad would get me or the cartoon characters on the TV, or the computer games characters which were becoming popular at the time. Being an only child it was my main source of entertainment, to keep myself busy.

q) How do you wish for your art to be perceived?

a)  I do my art to communicate our relationships as humans with each other and the cities we occupy.  I want my work to impact on the viewer on a strong emotional level. I want it to bring you joy but at the same time a sense of loneliness. I want it to reflect life. You have your ups and your downs.  One day you feel fulfilled, the next you feel completely lost. I’m constantly painting to try and achieve this sense.

q) What do your internal dialogues sound like?

a) My internal dialogue is one of constant worry, how can I use my art to speak to people on a deeper level. Will this work inspire the conversations I feel are important. Will the work put the emphasis back on humans and our emotions rather then material objects and glorification of them. I’m also discussing with myself, where do I fit into all of this, where do I fit in with this city, am I comfortable in it, will it ever bring me the satisfaction I’m craving from it. How can I have the discussions I want if I’m locked up in the studio day and night working rather connecting with other people. My internal dialogue is of constant concern.

q) Do you feel that there are limitations to what you want to create?

a) No not really, this is art, art is freedom, freedom to communicate what you want. The only thing that could hold that back is money I guess, as you may not have access to materials and some options due to lack of money. That does annoy me, that money can hold you back in creating your art. But that’s life I guess.

q) Do you feel art is vital to survival and if so, why?

a) Its vital for me, I‘ve got to communicate my feelings and ideas of the world and our relationship with it. If I don’t get to do that regularly, I get quite down and don’t feel I’m being myself. I like to work day and night, that’s me.  I can get depressed due to the lack of this expression if its taken away from me.

q) Describe a world without art.

a) Its an impossible question, nothing would exist, no architecture, fashion no nothing. We have sight so we instantly become visual. The wheel is a stunning piece of art. Some of us are maths and science and some of us are day dreamers.  You can not have one without the other. So in other words, if there was no art that would be due to the fact that there was no human race.

q) Tell us a secret, and obsession.

a) Ha a secret, oh I couldn’t tell a secret to the internet, where would secrecy be in that.Ok Apart from art I wouldn’t say I’ve got any other obsessions. In fact I purposely try in my character not to be obsessive about anything, as I feel that one obsession in life in more then enough. I don’t wanna be a collector of things, I feel that weighs you down in life. I want to have a good rounded character and view of the world, so I don’t want to be obsessive about one thing, because that will make me narrow minded.

q) Where can people see more of your work on the internet?

a) You can follow my work on Facebook at ‘Rowan-Newton’, on Instagram at  ‘rowan_newton‘ and of course at my website rowannewton.co.uk

Interview with NAOMI VONA

q)Walk us through an intimate day in your life

a)My daily routine is quite busy: I wake up, go to work, then I come back home and have a shower. After that I cook and then eat. Then I start to work as an artist. On the weekends I dedicate more time to my creative job.

q) Where did you grow up/where do you live now and how does that contribute to your art?

a)I am born and grow up in Desio, a town near Milan, in Italy. Now I am based in Dublin, I live here from about 2 years. I think that Italy offers a great starting point to get inspired from the artistic and creative point of view. Moving to Ireland helped me a lot too, I just started a brand new life and I also wanted to create something completely different here. I just have to thank this country for all the inspirational ideas that I had.

q) What is your earliest memory that propelled you to create?

a)I have just an instinct: I base my works on arbitrary memories. Everything comes up in an unexpected way. 

q) Tell us a little bit about your creative process.

a)I just start taking a vintage photo or postcard and some stuff like tape, paper, pens and so on. I work without thinking so much, I put together colours and forms and if they fit well, I start to create the collage. Every artwork is basically composed of three elements: my life background, my inspirations and subconscious, that is also the glue that puts all together.

q) How do you wish for your art to be perceived?

a)I like the idea that everyone can read “secret” messages through my creations, I don’t want to spread a specific message for now, I just want that people use their imagination and observe my works as they desire to.

q) What do your internal dialogues sound like?

a)My mind is full of music: while I create I always have a song in my mind. I think that music is an essential part of my life and inspires me a lot.

q) Do you feel that there are limitations to what you want to create?

a)Sometimes yes, I would love to create big pieces, but I am afraid of the results. I just need to fight this fear maybe.

q) Do you feel art is vital to survival and if so, why?

a)For me art is like air: if I stop now, it’s like to fall down into a black hole.

q) Describe a world without art.

a)The black hole mentioned above.

q) Tell us a secret, and obsession.

a)I would like to restart to dream the dark city where all my nightmares are shielded.

q) Where can people see more of your work on the internet?

a)You can find some of my works here:

Interview with Inga Liksaite

q) For the people who don't know your work - how would you describe it ?

a)I make sewings which are most often two-color graphic drawings. Sewing machine I see as a proper tool to draw in stitches, to create a new surface, a texture, a picture. That way allows me to merge my eye-mind imagination with a passion for texturing.

q) What are the key themes running through your practice?

a)In my practice I like continuation, but together - rolling around and back to the same. So maybe the key-themes may be called slow motion and repetition. For instance, I am sewing folds and giving them three dimention perspective, I form them by using horizontal line rhyme, it contradicts the fold sequence direction, which gives the whole picture a depth and vibration, attracts to explore a whole image and a surface in detail. I use it in all my motives, such as faces, folds or circles. I wish my works were not to shock but to balance.

q) Your favorite place on earth?

a)A place where I am at that moment

q) What influences your work?

a)A bit of all what I meet on my way, it is visual thinking in general situation and everywhere I go. Whatever: photography, cinema, walls, light, good discussion, people. I am also mad about textures, surface tactuallity, simple linen makes me inspired if it falls softly and heavily, gets nice light effects. Probably this combination of observing and crafting lays down and reflects on my canvases.

q)  What music are you into right now?

a)I am listening always a whole bunch of things. Often happens the day starts with radio classic, if they give me Swan Lake, I am thrilled. Then I like to check out what's up on Sound Cloud. After watching Django Unchained I found out to me this guy Jim Croce who died young in '70s. Nearby all I have most favorite recent composers, I can listen to them whenever and for ever, their works somewhat fit my tune, taste and understanding of sound:

Nr.1 is Bustler
Nr.2 is Jonny Ripper
Nr.3 is Darius Green
they all might be found on Soundcloud.com

q) Describe your thought & design process...

a)It is somewhat that I pick an image to use and thinking parallel about the way how it will be converted into the stitches. Hard to say what comes first, particular image or the whole concept of a canvas. Often I keep in my mind the whole canvas impression in advance. I carry a smoky idea of the whole picture including its' size, color amount, idea of composition. Then I start drawing and editing with a software and get more precise in every detail, adjust technical part. I always prepare several versions to pick one at the end. Then choosing a proper thread size and background fabric texture, so the stitch lays nice way on it. My works are mostly graphic images made of two colors, I am choosing carefully a relation of background and stitch color, also tensity of lines, to receive a wanted sfumato and chiaroscuro effect. At the end it is very technical and dry part to make it real and to stitch precisely.
Also there are other works which have a preliminar plan, but after experimenting directly on a canvas, using all predictable and coincidental together, gets a new way during the process, dictates further ideas, it always takes more time than expected and makes feel like an explorer. In circles I see endless possibilities when painting or sewing them. Happens that I have a nice piece of linen or wool prompting itself for what should come on it, so I work straight on it.

q) Which emerging artists are you looking forward to seeing more of?

a)I really like japanese artist Macoto Muroyamas' botanical drawings. I'm blown away about these thin and precise lines, cross-sections and measure notes of real nature plants, they are beautiful.
Also Monika Grzymala, I am not sure if one may call her emerging, she is emerged and established. I love her tape installations.

q) Favorite place on the internet?

a)I would like to burn internet ha ha

q) Do you have any upcoming projects/exhibitions we should know about?

a)I am working on a new big piece. It is time consuming and also a challenge to me. But it's to early to talk about it. And I am making a year break without exhibitions, so at the moment no shows scheduled. I will start thinking about it again when some fresh works are finished.

q) Tell us something we don't know - but should...

a)Have no idea how to impress:)

q) Where can people see more of your work on the internet?

a)Many of my works are here: liksaite.blogspot.com
