- What is your definition of painting? It is the art of creating feelings and emotions through plastic art to the creator and the spectator.
- What do you think about art collectors? There are several types of collectors, speculators and investors. There are those who are led by emotions, just for pure visual enjoyment, and the mixed ones who participate in different percentages or both. In my case, emotional collectors are more frequent.
- Who is your favorite writer? Cervantes.
- Which ones are your three contemporary painting references? Antonio López, Eduardo Naranjo and Pedro Campos.
- Is technique hard for you? Technique comes from the Greek word “techne” which means art, so the importance of technology in art can be deduced. It is vital. Technique is essential to the final result, particularly a painting. It helps to be whatever you want to be as a creator, and not what your technical lacks determine. Technique is inversely related to work.
- Where did you learn your technique? Did you learn it in school? I’m basically self-taught. I’ve been experimented with color and drawing since age five. However I had important teachers like Mestres Cavanes and I visited the main museums in Europe and America, as well as I attended the Fine Arts School some time.
- One last question: are you a happy man? I think happiness doesn’t exist continuously. There are moments of happiness, bursts of it and small stages of more or less happiness.
