Q: How did you get into painting? Were you an artistic child or was it something you discovered later in life?
A: Since I was a child I used to paint. Professionally for about four years.

Q: Do you have any influences?
A: Of course, I think all of artist has influences of other artists. In my case is renaissance art (for real) sub-realism and of course the tattoo art.

Q: How has your work developed over the years?
A: I started with picture! Then I was trying different techniques! Oil (I think is the best way).

Q: Nowadays, there are a lot of new art styles that helps artists to express themselves. Is there any style you prefer?
A: That's sub-realism and realism.


Q: Some people says, if your are willing and able to create - everything seem to be possible. Have you ever thought to play with different techniques?
A: A different style I don't think so... but in otherwise yes! I would make great wall art! Of course I'm willing to try tattoos!


Q: Are you supporting the note "The real artist is never fully satisfied"? If so, please share your thoughts.
A: I love what I do, but I always look for ways to improve!

Q: So many customers, drawings ... in your life, what keeps you permanently creative?
A: Life and it's emotions, things I see on the news! Music, things that are unusual, my son, humanity and God!

Q: As an artist, what are some of your greatest challenges?
A: I have many! But for now I'm trying to be a good tattoo artist!

Q: What reaction from a viewer makes you happy?
A: When they first see one of my paintings!

Q: What's your best motivational lesson for the new artists?
A: The practice! That's what makes great artist! Draw more than paint! Of course, don't believe in the comments of others, especially if they are negative!
