Contact with artist:
What exactly is Neo-Emotionalism?
Neo-emotionalism is an artistic movement and the name I decided to advocate to my style of painting.
How different is Neo-Emotionalism art from regular art movement and style?
The majority of the movements are focused on the technique while Neo-emotionalism is focused on the artist’s skills and emotions. Is important that the artist doesn’t use his mind in the execution to let the feelings and emotions to flow, and fundamentally the mastery of a skill should be shown in a figurative piece. To me, Art is the expression of the soul thru skills. Emotions without skills or skills without emotions, do not form an Artist.
In your personal opinion as an artist, why is feeling liberated important for both the artist and viewer?
Is important to feel liberated to let new emotions to feel the space and keep creating. If you don’t feel liberated when you finish a peace, it means that your creation is incomplete. The viewer should feel the same way when they essentially understand what they’re observing.
Why do you think most art shows 'Emotionalism’?
I think all arts created with emotions and skills shows emotionalism among other styles and movements.
Who influences your art style?
Mostly Shodo, for the control of the execution with an empty mind. Shodo artists make look simple something completely difficult and sophisticated. Cesan for the quality of his brushstrokes, Caravaggio for the lighting, Van Gogh for the intension, he wanted the sun that he painted to warm you up.
Who are your top 3 favorite artists who portrays their art in terms of vivid communication of moods, feelings, and ideas?
Picasso did express his and his muses mode even with really abstracted drawings. Cesan and Caravaggio, already explained in previous question.
