Hello dear surreal cupcakes, today we will continue to talk with surreal artist Paolo Uberti, enjoy reading:) Oh, did you miss the 1.part of the interview? Please, find it here.
Paolo, what toughest challenges have you faced as an artist during your art career?
I am too lazy to challenges ... I like a quiet life and have much time to waste!
What’s your background? Are you self-taught artist or did you study art? Do you think an art education is important or imperitive for anybody wishing to be an artist?
I consider myself a self-taught. I think that attending a school of art, however, we are self-taught! You learn from your mistakes and observing with the grand masters who you love and they become, with their artworks, our true masters.
What’s the best and worst advice you ever received in your art career?
I can not think of anything right now ....
What do you dislike about the art world? What is the hardest thing on being an artist? Is the artistic life lonely? What do you do to counteract it?
I do not consider myself an artist. I do not live in an artistic ambient - I have no direct knowledge with other artists - I'm quite lonely....but I diffuse through the internet my works and I look at the impact they make on others. This is very important to me!
Which creative medium would you love to pursue but haven’t yet?
I've never used oil paints, I prefer the speed of acrylics ... But who knows maybe in the future I will use them.
Do you have any tips or inspiring words for others? Maybe advice for beginning artists out there?
I do not know .... I think to express their inner world have a good basic drawing is very important ... and I find it's essential to practice drawing with our mind and make good use of the visual memory. This is a very useful exercise to create images without the visual references.
Your favorite quote is ...
I do not like the quotes.
What are you doing when you’re not creating? What (other) hobbies do you have?
I do not have enough time to have hobbies.
Do you have an online portfolio or a blog where we can view your work?
Here you can see my work:
✿ Blogspot ✿ Tumblr ✿ Behance ✿ Official Facebook Page ✿ Personal Facebook ✿
Is there anything else you’d like to say? Is there any project you are working on right now or any ongoing event or exhibition you would like to share with our readers?
Nothing in particular ... I public on the internet almost all of my work at least once every two days and everyone can see how it develops my journey in the imagination ... I hope to do better ....
Thank you dear Paolo for interview and we wish you only the best with your art. We keep eyes on your work and already could not wait to see your new visions ♥.
