Luca Curci – What do you think about the collaboration between It’s LIQUID and Ca’ Zanardi/Venice Art House?

Ingela Johansson – I think that International ArtExpo and it’s LIQUID organization creates global opportunities for artists to show their work, but also to inspire to further co-operations and projects.

L. C. – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

I. J. – The artwork I showed in Venice was titled Blue Memory, the theme was Future Memories. This painting has a “stamp” of a memory, a feeling of blue and a pose that is reaching out to what is yet to come.

L. C. – What are you currently working on?

I. J. – Right now I am busy in my studio with an upcoming exhibition at The Art Club in Singapore. Apart from painting I am working on an art talk about my monk and Prada paintings. I can’t stop thinking about our fascination for brands and symbols. It must be an interesting subject as we have had over 120 people that have said yes to our invitation.

L. C. – What is art for you?

I. J. – The celebrated French painter Degas once said that art isn’t about what one sees, but what one makes other people see. And that is what I attempt to do.

L. C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID organizations? Do you think they can represent an opportunity for artists?

I. J. – The online presence is an important marketing tool for the artists. The co-operations with Venice Art House and other groups enhances this opportunity.
