Motivation as an Artist
Like others, I have my dreams and goals that I want to reach in painting and contemporary art. This becomes my motivation. I always was inspired by Seneca, who once said: “It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it.” I think the same about myself as an artist. It is not the lack of time or opportunities that were given to me, but how I manage them. If I see results that I am not happy with, that means that there is something wrong with my use of the time I have. The time is a motivation for me as an artist and becomes a primary inspiration to create. The fact that I am given specific circumstances pushes my limits to invest into creating a new combination of subjects and styles in my painting. Themes are not based only on my background, and it is not exactly true that I am only interested in exploring political issues like I stated in my statement that you could find on my website.
