Interview with artist Peca Artista Plástica - Part 1

Today we will talk with amazing pop surreal artist Peca Artista Plástica about her pop surreal planet full of amazing little painted creatures and colorful dreams. Lets call it little artistic tea at five :) Shall we start? Ready? :)

Hello dear Peca, tell us a little about you and how did you find the artist inside you. How long have you been doing art?

The artist in me was manifested since I was a child, being an artist is natural for me.

What was / is your major influences? Other artists, books, movies, music or any other media....What inspires you to create your artworks?

I have many influences and inspirations, from The Beatles, brothers Quay, Geronimus Bosch, Castaneda, Bradbury, Van Eyck, Frida Kahlo, Ryden, my partner Mono Cieza, many and varied influences, rock & roll, surrealism pop, buddhism, astronomy, mythology associated with the cosmos. A great mix of all of these is in my paintings, but the biggest inspiration is inside of me, the need to express something intimate.

How does "a normal day of artist" in your life look like?

My days are generally based on what I am now, my days pass while I´m painting and as my partner is also an artist, there is no conflict because each of us is focused on own work. We make also stop motion movies, so when we are animating, the house is transformed into a film set.

What medium do you most often use and why?

Painting. I make other things too, like objects, etchings, animation movies, but I always come back to painting.

How would you describe your surreal style? What themes do you pursue?

Art is a way to get inside of me. Art is the way I use to find answers, to make consciously that cluster of ideas that inhabit in my mind  without any control. My thematic have to do with the search of understanding this existence, each character has a mission to complete and represents a question, my paintings are the realization of dreams of my mind.

What fascinates you the most about pop surrealism? What "pop surreal art"  means to you as an artist?

When I met the lowbrow and pop surrealism, I realized that I belong to this style, that there is my place as an artist, because surrealism was not enough, because yes, it is a painting that comes from the unconscious but also  has to do with the comic, with the rock with pop culture in general.

What do you love most about creating? What does being creative mean to you?

With each work is different, with some work I enjoy, with other one I suffer, perhaps what I more torments me,  are the ones that I like more, call it catharsis.
