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?
