Interview with the Artist Leila Ataya

Interview by Constanza Tagiaferri

Q: Could you tell us about your artistic journey and how did you arrive to prefer acrylic and graphite?

A: As long as I remember myself I have always been engaged in some kind of art activity. My parents would take me to a variety of art classes as it seemed like the one thing that I was always interested in. As long as I had some paper and pencils I didn’t even require babysitting from about the age of two. Later I went on to art school and afterwards became a full time artist.

Interview with the Artist Sabina Nore

As a young girl Sabina often spent time dabbling at her uncle’s and aunt’s atelier; seduced by the aromas and the magical atmosphere, these sessions undoubtedly set the base for her artistic development. A treasure hunter at heart and fascinated with the diversity of cultures and people, she was especially infatuated with anything that seemed different or exotic, be it trinkets from far-away countries, customs from distant lands, or new ways of approaching old habits. This passion and curiosity also led to her interest in psychology.

She studied music at the conservatory of Vienna to which she was accepted at a young age of 12, joining the class of Prof. Inge Scholl-Kremmel for classical guitar.

Interview with the Artist Kathrin Longhurst

Q: Tell us about your art and what inspired you to produce imagery about futuristic, science fiction or fantasy themes.

A: My work deals mainly with issues of gender parity, women’s empowerment and propaganda. In today’s world we are in desperate need to create a different narrative of women as capable, strong and empowered. Most of Western culture and history is told from a man’s perspective and we are frequently exposed to imagery that objectifies women and portrays them as accessories. I want to change that by using the visual language and symbolism of propaganda that I was exposed to growing up in East Berlin. I use military outfits and accessories as attributes of power and agency in my paintings.
