Interview with the artist David Stoupakis

Q: How long have you been an artist? Please tell us a little about your chosen medium.

A: I have been making art at some level for as long as I can remember. It’s something that has always giving me a great amount of joy and comfort. It became a way of making a living somewhere in the early 90s with numerous commercial art jobs. Throughout that time I was working on trying to find my own voice of what I wanted to say within my personal work. In the year 2000 my wife Aprella and I moved to New York City. It was at that time I started pursuing my own personal art career in full force. more » “Interview with the artist David Stoupakis”

Interview with the artist Kikyz1313

Through my work I am trying to build an emotional momentum, one that rouses the intellectual exercise of questioning one’s vision of reality. While looking at my artwork, the viewer will begin to experience a series of diametrically opposed thoughts and emotions. Initially they may feel overwhelmed by the obsessively intricate and highly detailed forms, the composition, the technical skill and the pleasant color vibrations but as an analytical shift in perception slowly overtakes them, the viewer unwittingly grasps the artwork’s inescapably wretched and subversive subject matter.

This new clarity forces the observer to reengage with the work and rethink their initial opinions until, in some way or another, the shift takes place and the observer’s perception of natural things expands to include elements such as disease and death itself. more » “Interview with the artist Kikyz1313”

Interview with the artist Christopher Lee Donovan

Q: How long have you been an artist? Please tell us a little about your chosen medium.

A: I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember. There was a moment where I thought I’d be a good meteorologist, but I ultimately stuck with art as my career.

I work in a variety of different media, but the glue of it all is the digital workspace. It appealed to me when I was young, in part, because it was a new frontier. Digitally generated or manipulated art continues to be controversial because it doesn’t yet have the deep, historic roots that older mediums have.

Q: Have you been trained, and if so from what institution? Or are you self taught?

A: I spent some time at tiny, now abandoned, art school named White Pines and then finished up my degree at the Rochester Institute of Technology focused on Commercial Photography. I gained allot of technical knowledge there about film photography that was already becoming irrelevant career-wise, but was useful as a foundation for photography. As far as Photoshop goes, I’m self taught.

Interview with the artist Katarzyna Widmanska

In my photography there is death, darkness, weirdness and elements of mysticism.

Q: How long have you been an artist? Please tell us a little about your chosen medium.

A: I have started to take photos about ten years ago. I discovered photography then and nearly at once I realized this is it-the best medium that will allow me to express myself.

Q: Have you been trained, and if so from what institution? Or are you self taught?

A: I’ve finished art studies but as a photographer I’m self-taught.
