What is your creative mission?
Musical and Visual art exploration. I’m not trying to stick to a style but alternative rock and abstract photography are what I think I do.
What do you love about what you do?
There’s no limit, no compromise. I leave room for surprises and I do what I feel like to. It’s really like travelling to a world you created, that you don’t really know it as it’s constantly expanding. You could go in any direction, the world of sound and images keeps moving.
What have you learned from your successes/ failures?
As an independent artist, production is a tricky step. For two reasons, the first one is the budget/time allocated to it. It’s a factor to consider in the way I create. The second aspect is the fact that I’m a solo artist, I can lack perspective and then realise later on what I could have done better. So overall, what I learned is all the things I can do better for my future works.
How do you keep pushing ahead after a difficult challenge?
Creativity became an addition and I want to keep it that way. If it was difficult, it’s because there something to learn, it might easier the following time or at least different.
Have you ever encountered resistance from family, friends, or the world in general? How did you overcome those kinds of blocks?
Not so much from family and friends as I’m a realistic person, I don’t take financial risks with my art that could lead me to the wrong place. From the world in general, yes, all the promotion goes to the mainstream artists and it’s hard to find my way through, but I get good feedback from my fans and I know a lot of people will find something to relate to in what I do.
How has your art and creativity healed you?
Satisfying a need is the way to avoid the frustration taking over. I need to create without guidelines. So if I can create for myself, I’m healed from frustration and disappointment.
What are your NFA Bullet points? What steps would you recommend for anyone who wants to kick some ass and get their creative dreams off the ground?
Don’t make money a goal. Don’t make art to pay your bills, do it because you want to find out how far you can go with your creativity. Art should not be a job but a personal journey. Of course making a living with your art will give you more time and opportunities but also more obligations related to it, which is not ideal for genuine creativity.
