THE LIGHT
GUAN YU , THE BUDDHA OF WAR

Q. What does your artwork represent?

My works represent the unity between my creativity and my taste focused on various historical and cultural themes. I am currently studying the Bachelor of History, so I have a great influence on this discipline in my artistic work. I have always looked for a way to represent what I read and what I learn through art, in addition to that, I also seek to represent topics that are generally taboo within society, such as religiosity or demonology, which generally, they are always viewed in a negative way, however, I feel the need to convey my perspective of it through my works.

Q. What inspires you?

As for inspiration, I think that sometimes ideas come by themselves, and at the moment of executing it on paper, elements are added or removed. I like to be spontaneous and when I draw that comes out more because I have always thought that to make art, one must let go and simply let everything that we carry inside come out. So it happens to me. Sometimes it inspired me in readings, music, or activities in daily life, I have also learned to polish a certain style having different influences from blackwork, Japanese art, surrealist art or painters such as Munch, Goya, Rubens, and Vergvoktre, or of films by Cronenberg, Lynch or Polanski. But in general, I think that for inspiration there are no precise moments, it just comes and that is where its magic lies.

Q. What does your art mean to you?

For me, that ability to create something out of nothing is incredible, that magic of turning a blank surface into something beautiful. Drawing has been, is and will always be my greatest love. My union with him is very personal, it goes beyond simply drawing, it is ultimately, leaving a piece of my soul in every job I do. Therefore, my work represents a part of who I am.
