My creative inspiration has always come from travel – seeing and experiencing new things in far-off countries awaken my creative thinking process and awakes my imagination. But when I’m not traveling, I draw inspiration from looking at artwork and paintings – whether impressionist or some contemporary artists. A few weeks ago, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a new retrospective on Francis Bacon opened. He’s one of the people whose color range and juxtaposition of tones have always been an inspiration to me. I guess it’s a contrast between harsh images and delicate coloration that has always appealed to me. How he plays one color against the other has always moved me and gotten me thinking how I could interpret that in my own work. Which artist inspires you and why? Or do you find your color inspiration in other places?
