Tell us about yourself.
Professionally I am an Architect, but ultimately I am a designer and craftsman who enjoy making things and making things happen with my hands.
As a Creative, you draw your inspiration from many sources. Who and what inspires you and if it is a place, where do you go to stimulate your creative juices?
It might sound a little abstract, but when I need to do creative work, I ‘teleport’ myself to this space that I call the Kraftsmanship. Tangibly, it is no more than my humble home studio, but interestingly, I would feel like I am voyaging in a nomadic lab in the oceans with no concept of time. And that is where my mind will be free.
If you can describe your creative style and approach in a few adjectives, what would it be?
Experimental, irrational, mythical.
Where do you see yourself and your craft in the coming years?
Fashion and film are definitely areas that I am developing further. But I do not wish to be confined to any single medium or form of art, so I would continue to explore more cross-discipline and collaborative works to seek new chemistry.
