Where does inspiration comes from?

Someone key in my artistic development is Jean-Michel Basquiat, he inspires me to be myself and not to look for those lines in my art that give a perspective that it was made with a lot of dedication and effort. That's what I was looking for before and that just took me away from who I am.
Why would I want to do something like that? Nature doesn't do it and it's perfect, it just "is" and that's it.

Whether it was easy or hard is just beautiful.
I prefer to focus on the ideas in my artwork.
I once read that there were graffiti artists who made things more aesthetically beautiful than Banksy's but no one has the same ideas as him and for me what he does is a beauty. Art is the most subjective thing and I think you can find beauty in any creation made by a human being or by another being. There is also a phrase that I like, it inspires me and I always remember it. "It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but it took me a lifetime to learn to draw like a child." Picasso Why would I want to do something like that? Nature doesn't do it and it's perfect, it just "is" and that's it.

What kind of music do you listen to?

Sometimes I listen to music but usually I don't, I focus completely on my work without being distracted by anything.

Fun fact

Once I was drinking at a friend's house in Jardines Del Pedregal, it was 3 in the morning, we went to his room and I saw some graffiti, at that moment I had a great idea, it occurred to me to say "let's graffiti my ex girlfriend's house", she lives 3 minutes away, she was 17 years old, we went to do it and the security guy came out, I told him we had permission, I drew hearts and another friend put romantic phrases, until a friend came up with the idea of drawing a male member and we got in the car and left as fast as possible. Great anecdote.

My ex-girlfriend thought at the time that I wanted to get back together with her but I was a drunk artist and wanted to do street art. I remember it and it still makes me laugh.

I altered the Mona Lisa with technologies that I believe are going to be key in the direction humanity is going to take.

I leave it to you to research the things found in this work of art.

This was written on July 20, 2021, if this is another year you may already know about these technologies.

From Homo Sapiens to Homo Deus.
