2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

Well, aesthetic is a deep branch of art to talk about, but for my art, I would say creativity.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

Definitely digital! I started traditionally, but later, I switched my focus to digital especially vector illustrations which I think suits me best.

4. What is your artistic process like?

The most important thing is a basic idea, I guess—a plan. Sometimes I get in my head a general sense of the result. Lately, I just make a concept in my head because especially if I m short with the time. If I m making something for client patience and researching is the most important.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

My inspiration comes in different ways. It’s from everyday life, also its nature and universe. Those things are amazing to me.  I sometimes look for the work of known artists: it stimulates me to grow and improve my skills.

6. What role does art play in your life? How does it change the way you view the world?

Art is always an escape from reality since school days. It’s something that s helped me to express myself. I just got to find something where I can be creative, and luckily I found art.
