Interview: Lea Nasnas
Luca Curci talks with Lea Nasnas during ANIMA MUNDI FESTIVAL 2019 – CONSCIOUSNESS at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi.

She is self taught artist who grew up in various countries because of the lebanese civil war and her parents divorce. Because of her high sensitivity, she started to paint to express my suppressed emotions. Her art often depicts hearts, wings and fireworks. She usually uses bright and metallic colors when she is doing “happy art”, a lot of blue hues when she is more in a meditative mindfulness state and some dark colors when she wants to express pain…She is fascinated by the life and artwork of Vincent Van Gogh to whom she dedicated some paintings. She have a unique style and all her paintings tell an emotional story. She let her inner child guide her hand when she paints therefore she signs her artworks “Ley” by the short of her nickname “Leyouche”

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Lea Nasnas – Art for me is a way to show others how I see emotions and the worls. It has helped me release suppressed emotions and also express things that I couldnt find words for.
In general I think art is a way of showing others the things you want to show them from your own perspective.

LC – What are you currently working on?
LN – I am currently working on a lot of different projects.
One of them is a tribute to Jean michel Othoniel’s work at Angouleme’s cathedral.
An other one is about thriving. It is still not very clear in my mind so when I get my ideas I wait for them to mature a bit before letting them out on the canvas.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
LN – The most challenging part about creating my artworks is that sometimes I am scared to face the emotions that need to be released.

LC – What is your creative process like?
LN –
I have a very high sensitivity and I get inspiration by everything I see and feel.
When I get an idea I start drafting it on a piece of paper. I need to let it out right away so if you see me doodle on a place mat at a restaurant something big will come up soon.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
LN – The main focus of my artworks are emotions. If I feel Joy for example and can see how Joy looks lile for me and I need to share it to the world. People can say its abstract art. I call my art emotion art.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
LN – The artwork I presented during the consciousness part of the festival was selected from previous works. But I also could have done one just for the exhibition. I have a serie of artworks that focus on consciousness and mindfulness. Mostly in blue hues with movemements flowing. I do these artworks in a meditative state and do not premeditate how they will come out.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? In which way did it inspire you?
LN – The festival is very interesting. The Palazzo di Ca’ Zanardi is a beautiful place for thos kind of shows. Seeing artworks from other artists always inspire me to push harder.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
LN – Of course. Giulia especially has been very helpful and always responsive to my emails. It is very important for the artist to feel safe and heard.

LC – What are your suggestions about our services? Is there something more we can provide to artists?
LN – I am looking forward to work again with you. And finally visit Venice and meet you in person.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
LN – Its great! It give emerging artists the chance to exhibit in amazing places.
