14 Aug 5 questions with Fotios Balas
1.Describe your art in 3 verbs.
Watch, smile, rethink
2. If your art could dance, what song would it dance to?
It would be a song in which Antony Hegarty(ANOHNI) would do the vocals, Craig Armstrong and Philip Glass the piano collab and Steve Aoki the remix version of it!
3.If you could have tea with another artist,who would that be?
I would like to meet Keith Haring, Warhol, Basquiat, Dali, Svankmajer, Bosch…. But tea? I would ENJOY a cup of tea only with a writer…with Oscar Wilde!
4. What do you do when you are not happy with the result?
Usually,I am happy with the result. If not, I just put it in a corner till the day I’d change my mind. I have never destroyed anything. I keep everything. I have even kept all of my drawings from kindergarten!
5. The world is about to end and you can only save one piece of art. What would that be?
That’s a tough question! If I couldn’t save all of them, I would probably save none. I think I would only save all of my sketchbooks. This is my little treasure. Because my sketchbooks and my notebooks are full of so many ideas and techniques that could give feedback and inspire at least ten more different artists and designers for a lifetime.
