Interview with Samuel Sarmiento
q) Can you describe your path to being an artist? When did you really get into it?
q) Describe your ideals and how they manifest in your work.
I talk about characters and symbols, decontextualising the painting and generating other types of discourse. These are some of the Ideas that will arise in the my next production, working in large and medium size formats, using a wide range of materials. [:P]
q) Is music a part of your studio time? What do you listen to?
q) How would you describe your work to someone?
These are Venezuelan painters with works that in my opinion seem from another planet ... I like Jonah Hill films, I think he shows real generation conflicts of the moment I belong to…hahaha!
q) Describe your process for creating new work.
q) What advice do you have for artists looking to show their work?
What are you really excited about right now?
There's nothing specially exciting to me right now. I would love to have enough room to work in large format ideas ...
q) What do you love most about where you live?
q) Best way to spend a day off?
q) Upcoming shows/ projects?
q) Where can people see more of your work on the internet?
