Luca Curci – What do you think about the concept of this contest?
Robin Greene – It’s great that so many different areas of design can be recognised and celebrated, from designers all over the world. The prizes are very practical and helpful to designers and artists.

 

L.C. – What are you currently working on?
R.G. – I am in the early stages of art and design consultancy projects in America, Italy and the Middle East. I am also working on a new collection of artworks that develops further my work in 2016.

 

L.C. – What is the message linked to your artworks?
R.G. – Many of the artworks I do are for different clients, so the message can vary greatly. The artworks always contain a combination of elements either within the artwork itself or in the construction of the artwork as a whole. I always try to challenge myself in the techniques and materials I use, and re-contextualise them into something new and exciting.

L.C. – How is being an artist nowadays?
R.G. – Very exciting. Always discovering new techniques and technologies that can be used for art installations. The advent of social media also means you are able to be both inspired by other artists, and also share and promote your own work very easily.

 

L.C. – What is your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
R.G. – I spent many years within the fashion industry as a Head of Design, Menswear, Print and Textiles designer for companies globally. The techniques I learned within garment and fabric construction heavily influenced the work I created for interior design firms and clients in 2016. I will continue this development in 2017.

L.C.  – What is art for you?
R.G. – Within my art, it is using contrasting elements and juxtaposition of materials to create something new. My aim is to create a fantastic installation or artwork that answers a brief, with relevance and purpose to its environment, that also leaves the viewer inspired.

 

L.C. – What do you think about It’s LIQUID Platform? Did you feel comfortable cooperating with us?
R.G. – Everyone at It’s Liquid has been a pleasure to work with.
