Luca Curci
talks with Inbal Kirstin during BARCELONA CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR 2021 at Valid World Hall Gallery.

Inbal Kristin is an artist born in Israel in 1980. After having obtained a diploma in Media design and a Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences and Humanities, she participated in several photography courses.
She have always had a passion for art. Since she remembers, Art was a vocation for her, a way to express herself and to evoke the viewer’s emotion. She likes to combine different materials in her works and also to incorporate different mediums: photography, painting and digital editing.

Recently, she started to focus more on digital art. Her inspiration usually comes from the music she is listening. She always pays attention to everything when she goes out. If she notices something interesting, like textures, shapes and colors, she captured them and use them as part of the work.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Inbal Kristin
– For me art is a type of work that expresses emotions, or presents some images. Art is done at the decision of the artist and according to his creativity and interpretation. The role of the artist is to draw people’s attention to sights, phenomena, beauty and pain.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
IK – I have always loved art. Art is an integral part of my life. Since I can remember, art was a vocation for me, a way to express myself and to evoke the viewer’s emotion. I attended elementary and high school which was an art school, in addition to the usual studies we studied art, music and theater. Subsequently, I studied visual communication and graphic design.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
IK One of my hobbies is running and every time I run, I come up with new ideas. I always pay attention to everything I see when I go out. When I notice interesting textures, shapes and colors, I photograph them and use them as part of the work. I really like listening to music, too. It has a very big impact on my work. I always work with music playing in the background.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
IK It is not easy to be an artist nowadays. Because there are so many artists. And it’s very difficult to make money from it. I engage in art because of love to create. It’s part of me.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
IK
At first, I focused on photography and over time I began to combine the various mediums: painting, photography and graphics

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival?
IK
I think it is a very good concept that allows for many and varied interpretations.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
IK – My work Inner Space represents the search for my personal identity in relation to the environment. In the image there are games of light and shadow. The shadow of the hand-reflection, self-identity and the shadows in the background that are not known where they come from. Philosophically that image can arises many questions such as: is our identity influenced by the society around us? In which way? What is stronger? Our beliefs the influence of society? or it is a mix?

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
IK – I think it allows for good exposure.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
IK
– Yes , of course. A professional and courteous team under the management of a manager who really cares about every artist and does his best to give a stage to every artist.
