“…Drawing is energy, it is action, it’s fast. Drawing is what I do, no story to tell, but just draw and see what happens. It’s not important how, when or where, just creating. Black on white, red, blue or yellow, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that it’s real, ink on top of paper, something you can hold on to, something to look at and share with others.
Drawing is making a mark, being there and feeling alive. I want to draw myself to freedom in any possible way. Freedom to act totally ridiculous and rebellious, drowning paper vessels in ink, create fingerprints on a crime scene; ‘what do the fingerprints show?’, ‘What is drawing in itself?’ and ‘What is the language of drawing and can I read it?’
I’m always curious and blown away by people who draw. From cave drawings to computer drawings, from children’s drawings to the art drawings on the walls of museums, from dirty graffiti to comic books and animations, it’s all good.
It’s the energy, the big boom, the beginning, new ideas, it can’t be stopped. Total freedom…”
