LC – What is your creative process like?
AA
– My projects are inspired by a famous painting, a revision or a vision of that painting, remade in a modern key, in reference to contemporary society, ironically but always maintaining its recognizability, it’s printed on photographic paper and set up on 5 mm Forex or printed on canvas. The elaborate is made using the Adobe Illustrator (a vector graphics program), in parallel with the Abobe Photoshop program (specialized in photo processing).
