When did you know you wanted to be an artist?
G: “I think deep down, I’ve always been an artist. It just took me a while to discover myself and my style as a painter. I’ve been painting and drawing ever since I was a child. It was my way to relax and daydream. I would get carried away into a different state where time didn’t matter and I didn’t feel any physical needs. Luckily, painting still has this magical effect on me today.
For me, being a painter or an artist is not a profession. It’s a special way to see the world. Painting is my way of expressing my views and beliefs. It’s also a way for me to connect with my soul and my true self.”
Do you think art has a greater purpose and if so, what is the purpose of your art?
G: “I believe art always has a much greater purpose than we might think. At a simple level, my art expresses my unique way of seeing and experiencing the mysterious, invisible dimensions of the world around us. On a deeper level, I think art is like a piece of information that speaks more to our emotions and subconscious than to our rational mind. Every work of art is an imprint of the artist’s vibration. Every painting I create is an abstract energy snapshot of me at the moment when the painting was made.
I think this explains why people sometimes feel tuned-in to a work of art on intuitive level without really knowing why. It’s about how they vibe with the art. In this way, the effect of a painting is a lot like the effect of music or a book. People often respond to my art on an emotional level and some have said they feel drawn to my art in a deep, almost hypnotic way. I like to think of my art as an invitation for people to explore the mysteries of the universe around us.”
