Seb Barnett, the talented artist, tragically passed on October, 8. Here is the exclusive interview taken by Jo David and Nina Pak with Seb for the “Fantasy” issue of the Miroir Magazine.
Q: How long have you been an artist?
A: Looking back I would start defining myself as an artist around 2005, the ideas of what I wanted in art, what my own art was about, and who I was in the world of contemporary art started to solidify at that time. Before then I was just making images that I enjoyed, expressing some emotions through imagery. Being an artist is about much more than just illustrating my own experience, it is about a relationship to others, the viewer, the models, the individuals who are thought of while the art is made. Before 2005 art was just about me. The mentality that made it more occurred when I started thinking about the impact my art could have on others.
Q: Have you been trained, and if so from what institution? Or are you self taught?
