For my second line I blend my photo’s and project it on an original painting or details of. I’m now also experimenting with video in combination with a professional music composer, not only as manager from the book Henrietta but also for my own art.

L.C. – What do you think about the curatorial project?
V.M. – Your curatorial project is very various, I like the diversity.

L.C. – What do you think about our press office?
V.C. – Your staff is very professional.

L.C. – What do you think about It’s LIQUID Group? Do you think it can represent an opportunity for artists?
V. C. – I’m sure that art is undergoing a worldwide renaissance and I would be glad to be part of this in Art history. Moving art and video as well as installations are new items in a viral world. It all goes very fast and there are many good artists in the world. It is not easy to be remarked and I thinks every social media and marketing is very important to survive as artist and make a living of his passion.
