How did you start being an artist?

My journey into digital art started uniquely. I began by playing around with programs like Macromedia Fireworks and Fruity Loops. I discovered a love for creating digital art that sparked my imagination. What keeps me going? It’s my constant desire to get better. For more than ten years, I’ve set myself the goal of making art every day. I’m always pushing myself to try new things, learn new techniques, and improve my skills.

What kind of projects have you been working on so far?

I’ve done multiple projects but some cool stuff, including the following:

  • Concert Visuals: I made incredible visuals for concerts. They were for famous singers like Justin Bieber and Katy Perry. They make the shows even more exciting!
  • Every day: This is a project where I make new art daily. It shows how much I love being creative and always trying to improve. Lots of artists around the world find it inspiring.
  • Short Films: I made some interesting short films. They have great music and visuals, and I worked hard on them.
  • VJ Loops: These are loops of graphics and animations that people can use for live shows or videos. They’re free for anyone to use and get inspired by.

My work has dramatically affected digital art. I always try to develop new ideas and make things better!

What inspired this project, and how has it evolved over the years?

The “everyday” project was born from a desire for continuous growth. It’s about discipline, dedication, and the willingness to embrace failure. At first, improving my skills was a personal challenge. But, it became something more profound.

I strive to refine my understanding of color, composition, and value daily. It’s a journey of self-discovery, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to share it with the world.

 

Why do you believe in working together and making things easy to access?

Working together helps us generate new ideas. I share my work using Creative Commons licenses, which encourage others to be creative without limits. Art should be available to everyone, regardless of their money or origin. It’s about building a group of people who love digital art and want to explore new ideas together.

What software and tools do you use for your art?

I mainly use Cinema 4D and Octane for my digital artwork. I keep up to date with new techniques and tools. I do this through online tutorials, forums, and working with other artists.

 

What is your style, and what materials do you like to use?

My style is eclectic, combining elements of Surrealism, Futurism, and Abstract Expressionism. I like to experiment with digital materials and textures. I use them to create compelling images.
