COMPULSORY QUESTIONS BY
WHAT DID YOU HAVE FOR BREAKFAST TODAY?
Porridge with fruits (god I’m boring)
Oh. Technically it’s a word, right?
DO YOU THINK THERE IS HIERARCHY IN THE CREATIVE INDUSTRY?
Just as much as anywhere else. It’s quite freeing actually. It’s nice to know they’ve got other people for everything else. I’m just the guy who paints. On the career ladder of life, that’s as high as it gets.
DO YOU DREAM WELL?
As a kid, all I wanted was to control my dreams. You can fly, eat McDonalds, have sex. I have to say, I’m still a beginner in dreaming.
ARE YOU RELIGIOUS?
FAILURE IN DESIGN IS A PROBLEM, BUT IN ART IS IT CONSTRUCTIVE?
I don’t think so. How constructive is it to fall flat on your face? Sometimes you find a diamond on the floor, but mostly you just fall. You’re always hoping for that part that will make you forget about the failing
part. Also, I don’t think there are many people to turn to when things go south. I’d love to discuss that bottom left corner of the painting I’m making with Caravaggio, but there’s only so much he can say... There’re only about ten people on the planet who know anything about painting. That’s not a lot, and they’re usually busy.
YOUR LEAST FAVOURITE MEDIUM?
WHO INFLUENCES YOU, IF ANY?
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO YOUR 16 YEAR OLD SELF?
Ah, geez, I don’t know man.. just think of it as... Ah, I don’t know.
MOST IRRATIONAL FEAR?
Of that bottom left corner not getting resolved... Pure torture.
