surname: S. Nevado
year of birth: 1985
Q1: When did you start making art?
I have always been a creative person, since I was child, so I’ve been producing ever since, especially when I started my 20s. The exact time when my doodles started to be art, I ignore it.
Q2: What does inspire you?
The relationship between the human nature and the nature of the world.
Q3: What are your techniques?
I mix digital photo manipulation techniques alongside with painting. I have rarely used other medias, such as vectors, 3D, fractals, sculpture or collage, to name a few.
Q4: What is the main idea or feeling behind your works?
I try to convey an emotional impact on the viewer, so I can beg them to make a deeper consideration of the world and contexts around us.
Q5: What is the main color of your art and why?
I think it’s black. It means the absence of light. I think my compositions are captured by a fast flash of light, showing the actions contained in them inside the darkness just for a second, to be seen by all and then to come back to their eternal lethargy again…
Q6: What would you improve about your work and why?
I want to be more straight forward, as my natural, ambiguous way of communicating in my images sometimes is a handicap for what I really want to show, especially when talking about politics.
Q7: Do you have any project for the future?
I am trying to finish my new series, “Internal Landscapes”, but now I’m more focused on planning some photo-trips to the nature, I’m building a giant photographic database to make my pieces.
Q8: Describe yourself with 3 words capturing the essence of Aegis-Strife.
Emotional, oniric, social.
Q9: Show us (link) your very first work. Describe it from techniques till feelings.
I’m afraid it’s not even published on the net!
Q10: What did change from your first work till now?
My skills, obviously, and a refined sense of visual language.
Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
A way of communication.
