Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Thomas Gonzalez – Art for me is an expression of what surrounds us, a dipper call, from the inside.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
TG – I have studies on Fine Arts, specifically in painting, a College Degree. But I have been working on different platforms such as Clowin, Circus, Theater, and Music. But my central core has been Fine Arts. I believe influences come in different forms, but I think the word that can describe this feeling is reform.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
TG – I find inspiration in everything, even in the advertisement, I think the inspiration is a decision, more than something that comes and then goes, is more in the action of being aware of what is surrounding you.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
– Being an artist is never sometimes easy, but the impulse of the wave is always a motivation to continue.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
– I think style is no other thing than the language of the expression. It always comes in different ways and is not always the same.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? How did it inspire you?
TG – The concept of the festival was really in tune with the new form of the world we are living in right now. I find it really inspiring, I was engaged with the concept and the sensibility.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
TG – Identities come in different flavors, in my case I present the identity of a hurricane, a situation that developed in my own scenario, giving a little light of the conditions in my country.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
TG – Yes, it is an opportunity for artists, and is a great way of challenging the old forms of representation, for artists.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
– I enjoy the cooperation and the communication, in everything, I hope to continue the contacts and keep working together.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
TG – I think the platform is an excellent way to get in contact with artists and have a web to engage with.
