20 May 2020
PG- How are you doing now?
O- Actually I’m good, I’m thinking of a lot of projects and I’m trying to reorganise my studio; at the moment I’m in the old one, but in a few months I’m moving to a bigger one.
PG- Whats lockdown like for you?
O- I’m trying to take this lockdown like an opportunity. I miss all the things that I could do before, but I want to try to be positive and use the lockdown to create new things.
Are you able to work/ where is your studio normally? What's your current set up.
PG- What projects are you working on now?
O- I can work in my studio because it’s really near to my home.
Now I’m working on your project and other two, one is a skatepark and the other is secret for the moment.
PG- Is lock down / coronavirus having an influence on your work?
O- Partly coronavirus is having an influence on my work because I’ve more free time and it gave me the opportunity of thinking on what really matters.
PG- Which artists/ instagram accounts are you most addicted to now?
O- I don’t have a favourite artist because I love the art in every form, I think that we can find art everywhere, we just need to look with different eyes.
PG- What are you listening to/ reading/ watching when you can?
O- Generally I listen to every kind of music and I try to take inspiration from it; I like to be versatile. At the moment I’m watching a lot of films and I’m reading some old magazines.
