He has such a unique set of color palettes that are bold and bright while still giving subdued and earthy shades equal share.
What is the greatest source of inspiration in your life?
For me, every moment in life is inspiring. No matter what we experience, see or feel anything can serve as a source of inspiration: entertainment, music, travel, science and technology or nature ... all this for me is an enormous, inexhaustible source of inspiration.
Describe to us a bit of your creative process:
I love experimenting. and I get bored very easily .. so I always need new ways to innovate and create. When I am creating my subconscious always reminds me of how much more can I explore.. I usually would start an artwork by beginning with water colours to create a base, and then paint digitally. Print the artwork on a canvas and use acrylic paints, pens and markers for line art drawings, 3D objects or even scraps , and experiment with traditional and digital medias on and off the entire process , even images or anything which I would connect with during the creation of the artwork, until I feel I am ready.
What drives you to create, or what is the soul vision behind your works of art?
The excitement to share, to express, to inspire is always pushing me to create. My works express what I feel, a lot of the phases and moments I observe around me, and it really depends on a particular mood. It's the zone I'm in to create at that time.
How has the internet helped you get your name out there?
Technology in any form, mobile, internet, has not only made the world smaller, but the way we keep in touch with easy other has become far more easier, whether it be friends or network. I feel it plays an equal role having a website presence as much as showcasing our artworks in the real physical plane. I believe that if we create from our hearts, all of these areas of communication and display help in one way or the other.
Any advice you'd give to other illustrators or artists?
To follow your heart, to be absolutely original, and to explore and enjoy what you do.
