Interview: Fiona Ai Bubble

Director Luca Curci talks with Fiona Ai Bubble about her idea of art during Pixels of Identities – Spain.

Fiona Ai Bubble is a mixed media artist and painter. Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1984, her origins are Brazilian, German, Dutch, and Chinese. Her work is a reflection of this mixed cultural heritage, which helps her unify East and West, in both aesthetics and philosophy. Ai Bubble captures her philosophy and artwork: Ai means love in both Japanese and Chinese; Bubble represents the notion of the mind and an enclosed universe. This theme is also taken from Buddhist and Christian teachings as the art of mindfulness. Between Paris and New York, Fiona studied fine art and photography at Parsons the New School for Design.

Luca Curci – When you start practicing art and why?
Fiona Ai Bubble – I have been creative since a young age. I have always loved to bring to life things which didn’t exist, or only in pieces; to interpret reality in some way. It was a great way to mix together aesthetics, vision, exploration and a sense of magic. I always saw the stages of creations as being something quite magical, linking reality from its visible to invisible rays.

L. C. – Can you talk about your artistic work? Which are your inspirations?
F. A. B. – My personal work is a visual tale into the story of creation. The cycle of life, evolution and ascension is my main inspiration. I crystallise experiences, moments in transformation. Self-transformation is the essence of my artistic vision and quest. Life is energy. It is in constant movement, evolution and transmutation; echoing our process of growth. Creating stages of creation and art aimed at self-transformation, in enlarging the vision of the viewer and immersing him to a new perspective, is my main goal. My artistic process is derived from this. I use elements from the real world, fragments of reality. I crystallise light and link reality and the virtual/ spiritual with the human hand through drawing and painting. All those stages of construction and deconstruction mimic the cycle of life and bring together different facets and perspectives into one. Cubism was the first movement to explore angles and recomposition. I do extract some notions of different movements such as it, impressionism, expressionism, futurism, surrealism.. and mix them together to showcase my own vision.

L. C. – What are you currently working on?
F. A. B. – I am currently working on few projects in different mediums. They are all marking the next step in my story. The first stages talked about the two main energies forces of serenity and vitality and their complexity. Vitality took us into the big bang and the symphony of creation. A journey in the amazing life of energy and how it shapes into matter. The new projects describe the physicalisation of the synergy and its process: the awakening phase.

L. C. – What was the best advice given to you as an artist?
F. A. B. – The best advice I got was to keep dreaming and believing, to feed what makes you unique and transform it into something.

L. C. – What is art for you?
F. A. B. – Art is way to experience and make people feel things. It is a form of creation that can elevate people lives and affect their psychology.

L. C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo organisation?
F. A. B. – I think International ArtExpo organisation is a great organisation, focused on future, new technologies and integration of different mediums. It tries to connect artist within the world as a web. It is looking to revolutionize the way we interact and see art.

L. C. – Do you think International ArtExpo organization can represent an opportunity for artists?
F. A. B. – I believe International ArtExpo organisation can represent an opportunity for artists to be visible on different platforms and potentially have them collaborate with one another.
