Q: In your creative activity, do you feel influence from other artists or ones you respect?In creating my work, the answer is no.But quintessentially, whatever you do painting or playing music, your favorite artists or ones you respect are the great force which drives & leads you to the same field.
Q: Is there anything that you might be sacrificing for your creative activity? And what is the most important thing in it?Well, nothing makes me feel like that way. This is not what someone is forcing me to do, it's totally my choice & where my passion goes toward.One belief I have for this is "Not to be stuck in a fixed idea", being open-minded anytime. As the Japanese old saying has it, it's crucial for us creative people to keep beginner's humility. What we learn from our experience easily fixes our visions & thoughts narrowing our viewpoint.
