For how long are you working with collage art now and what was your reason to become a collage artist?
Last two years, I have started to do Collage from the hobby. I find that this kind of art make me enjoy in finding picture and learn more in their stories behind. I feel that there is a large space for imagination. There is no border between each picture although those photos come from different places. It makes me feel that there is always something new.
Would you consider yourself mainly a collage artist or do you prefer working with other techniques as well?
Yes, collage is my main job. It is not limit only photos or cut and paste techniques. You can use other techniques to combine as well such as painting, creating new design and adjust the tone color of photos. It depends on the final collage that you would like it to be.
When you begin working on a new collage (set of collages), do you already have a picture in mind of how it should preferably look when finalized?
This is a real challenge. Everytime I can’t imagine that how it looks when finalized. I have only blur photos in my head. Because when you move just only one picture, the meaning of the overall picture will be changed. Not everytime that I can find the pictures that I want. Sometimes you will find the impression from the things that you don’t expect . They will be combined together like a big jigsaw together with the driven feeling until the end.
What fascinates you the most about collages?
Collage make me fall in love with reading and observation. I’m more softer like feminine. The one thing that makes me fascinate about collage is the thing that I don’t expect and the challenge of works. No matter what how different of the stories of pictures when they are combined together, It make me feel that they have core character and beyond the imagination.
In art, what is your favourite epoque / your favourite art movement, and why?
I think this kind of art is being used more and move to other business in fashion. I also try to adjust my work. I also have project with clothes which will be published soon.
Do you have an artist whom you admire and whom inspires you?
My favourite artist forever is Salvador Dali.
What are your main inspirations, or how do you get inspired?
My inspiration comes from daily life and surrounding. Sometimes it drives me to do one work when I’m back home to translate all imagination from my mind. When it finish and I come back to see it again, it remind me for the feeling at that moment. Or just close my eyes and feel free for a second, I can get something from that moment.
Does music have any influence in your work process? (And, if so: What kind of music do you like to listen to? Any favorite song or artist or genre?)
Normally, I can listen all kind of music like Indie, Alternative Rock such as Foster The People, Two Door Cinema Club, Radiohead, Gotye, Coldplay.
Is there a quote you always carry with you in your mind, heart, notebook, mobile phone or wallet, that describes or inspires you?
The temptation from the intention will not be useless.
Any question you have always wanted to be asked (in an interview), but never have been?
