tattoo | design| Interview with Eddy Avila by Iva Kancheska 22/08 /2011
Q: How did you get into painting? Were you an artistic child
or was it something you discovered later in life?
A: Since I was a child I used to paint. Professionally for about four years.
Q: Do you have any influences?
A: Of course, I think all of artist has influences of other artists. In my case is renaissance art (for real) sub-realism and of course the tattoo art.
Q: How has your work developed over the years?
A: I started with picture! Then I was trying different techniques! Oil (I think is the best way).
Q: How much time was necessary to develop your skills?
A: I think it has taken all my life! But practice is essential! I think God made me for this!
Q: Nowadays, there are a lot of new art styles that helps artists to express themselves. Is there any style you prefer?
A: That's sub-realism and realism.
Q: Your art features such a great color mix. Deep shadows
and brilliant highlights. Are you always inspired by the color
A: Yes! I like the color! Ironically, I always wear black! I think it's because I work so much in color!
Q: Some people says, if your are willing and able to create - everything seem to be possible. Have you ever thought to play with the technique? Like, doing something different?
A: A different style I don't think so... but in otherwise yes! I would make great wall art! Of course I'm willing to work on the tattoo!
Q: I can see that your playing a bit with the faces (the exact) have you ever tried to do some caricatures? In a matter of fact, I think that would be a great idea!
A: Hahaha! I drew some caricatures a few years ago! Is very interesting but is not my favorite style.
Q: Are you supporting the note "The real artist is never fully satisfied"? If so, please share your thoughts.
A: I love what I do, but I always look ways to improve!
Q: So many customers, drawings ... in your life, what keeps you permanently creative?
A: Life and it's emotions, things I see on the news! Music, things that are unusual, my son, humanity and God!
Q: As an artist, what are some of your greatest challenges?
A: I have many! But for now I'm trying to be a good tattoo artist!
Q: What reaction from a viewer makes you happiest?
A: When they first see one of my paintings!
Q: What's your best motivational lesson for the beginners?
A: The practice! That's what makes great artist! Draw more than paint! Of course, don't believe in the comments of others, especially if they are negative!
