"Since I was a kid I remember being surrounded by art. My father a Product Designer brought to me from an early age an interest in Art and Design. This was the first push to find my path into visual art and found my way over the years with CGI.."




A: Please, tell us a bit more about yourself. What brought you into art?


M: Since I was a kid I remember being surrounded by art. My father a Product Designer brought to me from an early age an interest in Art and Design. This was the first push to find my path into visual art and found my way over the years with CGI and 3D Art to express myself. What I love the most about Digital Art and 3D is the creative freedom and the endless possibilities that it gives me. It’s really liberating.



A: What inspires you the most?


M: My surroundings. Whatever crosses my life influences my work somehow. Nature is a big source of inspiration, as well as Music and the work of other fellow artists.



A: Do you have any specific rituals while working (creating)?


M: First of all, I would grab a pen and start doing mind maps and sketches in my notebook to organize myself. It really helps. Then just start working and keep working. This process is all about going forwards and backward until I would find that thing that I was looking for.



A: What would you recommend to someone who's new to art (an artist or just an admirer), what to begin with?


M: Focus on what you are doing and enjoy the process. Don’t try to look at the final piece before starting work. It will go through a lot of stages and changes- let it flow.

Do not compare yourself with others but with your past self. And work a lot. Is the only way to get better at your craft.



A: Your top 3 adjectives related to art?


M: Honest, Meaningful, Personal




A: The best angle to look at art is from ..?


M: Your own perspective



A: The perfect phrase to start any conversation about art is:..?


M: Usually, when we start talking about art it's because of something we saw and were amazed by. Some artists' last work, a movie that really caught your attention. I think there is no perfect phrase to start talking about art. We just end up talking about what really caught our attention.



A: Must-read books to help us talk about art (or do we even need them)?


M: Here are some books that may be interesting to look at. "Ways of seeing" by John Berger; "The Art of Noticing" by Rob Walker; "Art and visual perception" by Rudolf Arnheim. Books can help you understand art on a deeper level. I would recommend using them as a tool and complement to experiencing art in person. There is no better way to truly understand and enjoy it.



A: What would it be if you could change one thing in the art world?


M: I would like it to be more about art and less about money.



A: Please, share your favorite quote (not necessarily related to art)


M: “Creativity takes courage” Henri Matisse

“Inspirations exist, but it has to find you working” Pablo Picasso.
