My life has been centred around creativity and drawing. I have assimilated the world through creative expression and in return the world has experienced me with so many gifts that I never expected. I have grown to understand that on one hand the world will always uphold creativity as the most honest feeling possible. On the other hand, the portents of fame (the glitz, the glamour, the wealth) that arise from this very recognition of creativity are not the main of my interests (I’m a shy guy). Honestly, to me, doing this goes beyond fame and success.
So, why I do this?: I do it ‘coz I just like to do it. I light a cigarette, put music on me and I’m starting feeling liberated, I throw all my feelings over it, conscious and unconsciously. When I’m captured drawing a picture I lost the track of time, it becomes an obsession until I finish but it never seems finished to me, I’m constantly adding details, looking in so many ways and possibilities; even if’s not necessary at all. My honest self is sitting grasping a pencil with a blank paper while I’m drinking wine and listening really sorry songs (but you reader has to find less destructive way to do this). It is just like a Love Affair.
I like to consider myself as a constant learner, an amateur, not a professional, never a teacher. Since I was a kid I always wanted to study arts or going to some drawing school, but my parents didn’t have enough money to afford that; Luckily I’ve found truly friends who they really are amazing, who teach me and support me everyday directly and indirectly, I learn daily from them. I’m a lucky guy.
I work very hard and I fail most of the time, I’ve failed over and over again throughout my life and drawings, fail enough to succeed the next time (I hope); to me the best drawing always is the last. I’m aware that the pictures or drawings what I do are not good or excepcional enough, also I know that I’m not the best “artist” or most “creative” person you may find in this city, in this country and in this world; but I do it because its my biggest gift I can give to the world, I never expect appreciation or recognition for what I do. What da’ hell I will still doing it ‘coz I love it.
My life is a constant contradiction and paradoxical as life itself.
