WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE? ANY FAVOURITE MUSIC ARTIST?
C. I like alternative rock and electronic music. I feel younger, so I could define myself as a Radiohead groupie (hahaha). Love their music.
G. I listen to hip hop and experimental music. It depends on the periods. This is the C2C period.
TELL US SOMETHING YOU LOVE AND SOMETHING YOU HATE.
C. I love wood smell and ice-cream. I hate artichokes!
G. I love old things, junk food and watching movies. I hate herbivorous animals tooth and sleeping with the lights on.
WHAT DOES DESIGN MEAN FOR YOU?
C. I connect the word “design” to the word “beauty”.
G. Design is the way to say something without using words.
WHICH ARTIST HAS MOST INFLUENCED YOUR STYLE? WHY?
C. Annie Leibowitz, for her gorgeous portraits; and Gregory Crewdson, for his excellent use of the artificial light and the disquieting and cold atmosphere he gives to his sets.
G. Jean Michel Basquiat. I love his primitive approach to art.
WHICH IS THE THING THAT YOU USUALLY FIND EASIER TO DO IN YOUR WORKS? AND WHAT ABOUT THE HARDER ONE?
C. I find easy to approach people to take them portraits. I like meeting strangers for this reason. It’s hard catching the right light sometimes.
G. Everything about drawing is easy for me. It’s hard when I have no inspiration.
