LC – Among the several techniques you use, which one do you prefer to practice and which are most compelling for you?
AK –
I love to use fluorescent and bright colors. They are aesthetically beautiful and optimistic but at the same time cold and not warm. The candlelight forgives as it is a warm light.

LC – What do you think about art on social media? Are they turning into the new showcases of contemporary art?
AK –
I treasure embracing technology and the Social Media world to share my creativity and contemporary messages with a new global audience that is visually fluent. Additionally, I am an artist emerging from receiving prizes, such as the Public Choice Award. An art digital platform issued this award, and I received it as my artwork at this art platform attracted thousands of views and loads of comments.

LC – What issues do you intend to deal with in the future?
AK –
It is not only about culture, globalization, and nature but the magic of blending them out in a contemporary way with captivating aesthetics whilst passing a message.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the exhibition’s theme?
AK –
‘Future landscapes’ is the title of the exhibition, and it contradicts the fact that the designs of my artworks are from my past cultural explorations combined in a fantasy landscape due to design or color choice that aims to escape reality. (FantaEscapes like landScapes)

LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
AK –
In the darkness, fluorescent paintings glow to enlighten spirits, showing that artworks best match the beauty and healing that we all shall have in hand.

I am not against Dada for being Dada,
I am not against the world to be part of it,
I am not against black for painting pop & fluorescent,
I am not against real for seeking magic,
I am not against still for having a story to paint!

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
