What do you do? How do you define yourself as an artist?
Iīm a painter. I study propaganda and marketing, I have been invited and awarded with a full scholarship to study automobile design (my second passion) at Lawrence Tech University (southfield, michigan). Itīs been declined. My true love is painting. Though I only found out about that exactly 3 months ago, when I decided to work, as a painter. As an artist, well, I am a "bon vivant". Walking in the beach, talking, drinking, eating. I savour every moment, trying to get something out of it.
Do you upload your work to the web? If so, where could we see it?
Yes! @maurity_damy , www.youtube.com/user/mauritydamy , www.coroflot.com/mauritydamy or at my facebook account.
How is an idea born? For you, what is inspiration?
An idea is born with a lot of thinking, a LOT of boredom and obviously work. Inspiration comes from the environment.
How do you evaluate whether an idea is good or not?
Every idea is a good idea. If you think of something that doesnt quite work out, keep it. It might work later.
Why do so many artists and creators have such volatile personalities?
I have no idea, but I try to keep focused. Though itīs tough!
How do you feel about the fact that the pieces exhibited in contemporary art museums are often of artists already deceased?
Itīs great actually. But they are history. Museums should give more support for the newcomers. Evaluating their work and giving space for them would be the proper solution.
Do you personally collect any items?
Which websites do you frequently visit?
www.google.com (lots of images, good for inspiration if you know what youīre looking for.)
