Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Sarah Peguero – For me art is freedom. It reflects emotion, concept, ideology. It can make you happy, sad or melancholic. It helps me connect with my soul.
LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
SP – Interior Design, Fashion illustration were my first educations. Now I work with Graphic Design and languages. The world of fashion and design is always in movement, it never stops. This has a big influence in my work. I like diversity.
LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
SP – I really don’t look after inspiration or other artists works. I paint and create by impulse. The results of my work depend on how i feel. I have found out that I can create the must beautiful works when I’am mad or angry. My art is fueled by impulse and emotions more than predetermined ideas or genres.
LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
SP – I feel lucky to be an artist right now. Everything is much easier though the different social medias. I wouldn’t be participating in this exhibition in Venice if I didn’t had an Instagram account. We can comunicate 24/7 with galleries, collectors, artists in another continents. Minutes after we finish a new artwork, we can share it with the rest the world. It’s fantastic.
LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
SP – Yes. We are all constantly evolving. I like new things. Monotony bores me. New structures, new color pallets, materials are always welcome in my studio.
LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? How did it inspire you?
SP – This festival is a fantastic idea. Just to see that so many artists from so many countries are exhibiting here is a huge inspiration. There is a lot of dynamic, activities. It gives me positive energy to create more.
