Interview with artist Peca Artista Plástica - Part 2

Hello dear surreal cupcakes:) If you have missed the first part of an interview with amazing pop surreal artist Peca Artista Plástica, you can find it here. This is the part 2 of the interview, enjoy:

Can you describe your typical workflow / artistic process when youre working on your art? 

If I have a theme, I think about it few days and then I just take a brush and the images come to me in phases. The things emerge slowly.

What is your personal favorite artwork from your portfolio and why? 

I like "Day Tripper" because there are many connections with my life hidden in this painting.

Where do you see yourself in the future? Professionally, whats your goal? 

I  do not think about it too much, I try to not generate expectations, I just attempt to work hard and overcome myself.
What toughest challenges have you faced as an artist during your art career?

Each project I undertake becomes more and more difficult challenge and when I have some kind of external pressure, the challenge increases.

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 am graduated from fine arts at the University of Fine Arts in La Plata, Argentina and also studied cinema, music, and animation for some years. In my case college served me just as something extra, it was good because I´ve got the initial kick, I had fun and I met great artists, but like the rest of our education system responds to the needs of this. For me the important thing is motivation, the tools are on the way.

Whats the best and worst advice you ever received in your art career?
  
The worst: use or not use certain colors. The best I do not remember, I have always been very obstinate.
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've had times when I've painted surrounded by celebrating people, I liked it until it dragged me down a bit. Now my life became very lonely but I like it, I think it is a choice but not eternal, things are constantly changing. the people too.
Which creative medium would you love to pursue but havent yet? 

I would go for animation, but it's demanding and time consuming, the last short film took 3 years and at the moment I prefer my intimate connection with the canvas.
Do you have any tips or inspiring words for others? Maybe advice for beginning artists out there?
  
I don't feel authorized to give tips, I can tell to others only what I told to myself: Look inside of you.
Your favorite quote is ...
  
The worst is that we know that behind the order of this world there are other. (Antonin Artaud)


What are you doing when youre not creating? What (other) hobbies do you have?
  
I like to watch the stars, follow the movement of the constellations, I'm an amateur astronomer, I know the location of the stars, the planets and the constellations and I love to make this. I also practice meditation and I play a mini- theremin. I would like to study more these aspects.



Do you have an online portfolio or a blog where we can view your work?

Yes, I have two blogs and Facebook page:
Blog: paintings by me
Blog: animations movies by Mono & me
Facebook: my official page

Is there anything else youd 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?
Now I'm working on a series for a solo show and one work for a group show. Right now this is my show: "Hopi dreams in Strawberry Fields" in Fousion Gallery in Barcelona until September first.

I would like to thank Peca for interview and we wish her only the best with her art career, we wish her lot of surreal dreams, love and strawberries ♥
