1. What’s your story? Where are you from?
My name is Fabian Oberhammer and I’m an italian visual artist who is known by the name “Dizzy Everydays” or “The Dizzy Viper”. I do one 3D render per day in order to improve my skills on a daily basis. I originally started learning 3D software because I wanted to learn how to make Videogames as I’m quite a gamer myself. But soon I realized that I didn’t know anything about programming and I really wasn’t interested in learning it. So I set that on ice for a while. In the meantime I started producing music which then led me to Concert Visuals. I started making small really beginner looking. Loops for some of my gigs and designing Album covers. On February 11th 2017 I started my Everyday Project and have made over 400 consecutive renderings eversince using Cinema4D and Octane Render.
2. Tell us about your aesthetic.
My style of art is focused on a variety of styles. As I make daily images my style changes from Project to Project. One day its a very apocalyptic render and the next day it could be a very colorful and relaxing render.
3. What is your favourite medium and why?
I usually only release a digital version of my renders, as that’s perfect for Instagram or Facebook. However I’m planning to also print my art on Canvas, as I’m a big fan of it as well.
4. What is your artistic process like?
As I often don’t have too much time to spend on Everydays I just jump into Cinema4D and start doing something, eventually I come up with an idea and just follow that. When I don’t find any inspiration I also go on Tumblr using searchwords like “Sci-fi”, “Brutalism” and “3DRender”, then scroll through the feed really fast without looking at a specific image. That way I get subconsciously inspired without risking to copy someone elses work. My artistic process also implements alot of randomness, I use the octane scatter quite often for example.
5. Who and/or what inspires your work?
Probably the biggest inspiration for me is Mike “Beeple” Winkelmann. He is the reason I started doing daily renders. I also get a lot of inspiration from Artists like Simon Stålenhag, Ash Thorp, Cornelius Dämmrich, Stuz0r, and Liam Wong.
6. What role does art play in your life? How does it change the way you view the world?
Art has always played a big role in my life, not really in form of pictures but in form of buildings and architecture. I’m personally a big fan of brutalist architecture which can be seen in some of my recent renderings as well.
7. Where did you study?
I didn’t go to any form of artschool. I went to a Highschool for hospitable economics as my grandparents own a hotel and I was expected to take over that business.But during Highschool I discovered my love for 3D-art and Animation.
8. Where do you see yourself in five years?
I would love to work for bigger musicians as Stage-Visual-Artist. That’s also my main goal to reach in the next five years.
9. What about in ten?
As this industry is rather new I do not know what to expect in ten years.
10. What do you hope to achieve with your art?
I just love to share my art with people all over the world. The main goal that I have with my everydays is improving my skills and getting known in the scene to some day be able to do this for a living.
11. Now, tell us a little more about you as a person: what is your favourite food?
I am a very calm person and understanding i think. My favourite food is Ribeye Steak. I’d also consider myself as a Hardcore gamer as really long gaming sessions (10 Hours +) are not too rare in my life.
12. Favourite book?
My favourite books are the Artbooks by Simon Stålenhag, I know it cannot really be considered “Reading” but still.
13. Favourite genre of music?
I dont really have a favourite genre of music. I listen to different music from day to day, reaching from Frank Sinatra over Deadmau5, Boards of Canada and Getter over to things like My Chemical Romance.
14. What are your hobbies?
I also don’t have many other hobbies that 3D-Art. However, I do currently play a lot of a Videogame named “Rocket League”.
15. If you weren’t an artist, what would you be?
If I weren’t an artist I think I would rather be an architect also because my father is an architect or be the owner of my grandparents Hotel.
