Welcome to AllArtWorks Featured Artist Series!

1. What other profession is similar to being an artist and why?

In the broad form of the question, everything has the touch of art, there are also those who do it and they do not know it. A good teacher is also an artist and Albert Einstein is an artist, and I can expand and write on the subject very, very much, whole books.
The closest to me, it's carpentry. I grew up in a carpenter's house, my grandfather was a carpenter, and my father to this day is a carpenter. I see the light in his eyes every time he creates something, and see how he feels every time he faces a new and difficult challenge and in his artistic way he Knows how to make it strong and also beautiful, just a work of art, to see how this gives him air to the soul just like photographing and painting for me.

2. What’s the nicest thing you can remember someone said about your work, or an individual piece?

I can't forget the feeling in my heart to this day.
At exhibition in ArtPrize Grand Rapids, MI, USA, I left an open book and pen that people could write down on their thoughts.
One day during the festival, Kim Carson from the radio station came to visit me and asked me if I read what people wrote in the book, I told her that it was difficult for me to read a manuscript in English, and she sat and read to me, the reactions really excited me, but one sentence that goes with me to this day, "You gave me the strength to continue."
This memory only remains in my head because the book disappeared from the exhibition and will never be found.
I only remember the desire to give this woman the art for free and wish her much success, only if I knew who she was.

3. What’s one thing you’d like everyone to know about you as an artist?

That I believe that there is a lot of good in this world even if sometimes it does not seem so.
4. What was the last piece of art that you saw that blew you away?

It's not one, it's a mix of things that come to one finished piece.
As we said before, art is in everything and it happens to me a lot to get excited and feel every day, from words, sounds, colors, dances, designs, choreography and much more. Many things mix together and become 1. Every day.
It is difficult for me to explain this in word. It is easy for me to understand it through the creation of Art.

5. What’s something you haven’t done but you want to do in art/painting?

I have done it before, but not big enough, and not for long enough, to draw in parallel on various art works at the same time, I have always loved this, hope to return to it in the future if I have the space and time to make this dream come true.

6. Which artist do you like better - Ingres or Delacroix, and why?*

They were both geniuses.
But if it's pick one I choose Ingres.
Why? Too long to write here, but if short, so when I see his works, I feel more right with them.

*The reason we ask about Delacroix and Ingres is because they were contemporaries with wildly different styles!
