Where does your love for art come from?
Vic: My mother studied painting, and my grandmother always did it too, so I always had a pencil in my hand since I was little. It has always been a passion, but it was also quite logical in my life.
Dominique: My family is very into music, and they all play an instrument, which is something I can’t but want to learn. There’s always been interest in art in my family, but since we’re a big family, everybody has their references, and we enrich each other by showing each other new things. I have always danced to Michael Jackson and tried to copy his dances. When growing up, dancing became my hobby. It wasn’t a specific choice, but it just happened. Just like Vic said, it was logical and has always been important in my life.
What inspires you to be an artist? Is it personal things or your imagination?
Vic: I can’t work without music and try to visualize the moods of the songs in my art. I translate the music into colors or movements. Besides that, I love to travel and love to talk to other creatives because it can lead to new artistic directions. The same goes for good movies.
Dominique: His answer resonates with me because music is a big source of inspiration for me. I’ve also watched plenty of movies and commercials because there’s so much creativity behind these subtle messages. It may sound cliché, but nature and travel always fulfill me with new ideas and energy. I just spent two weeks in Paris, and it felt like I was there for six months. Many things boost my creativity, but it’s influenced by the people I surround myself with and my background.
