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 Paolo Pedroni

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

A: I may say I’ve always been an artist. Since I was a kid, I was interested in making my fantasies tangibles. In the beginning, I chose to work with digital painting as it allowed me to experiment and to avoid weighing time. Lately, I started again with oil painting. I hate repeating myself, both with subjects and techniques.
