a)Hello. Me llamo Jefe. Oh wait, does that mean chief?
q)How did you get into art?
a)I was always into creating things from an early age, but I would have to say the biggest impact for me wanting to be an artist, was by being exposed to Rene Magritte. And a recent trip to Bruxelles to visit the piece in question (The Unexpected Answer) reconfirmed it all for me.
q) Who has been the biggest influence on you?
a)Outside influence? I’d have to say Magritte again, my Grandmother and then Deano Cook who I apprenticed tattooing under and worked 11 years for.
q) Do you rule by any tendency in your creative work, or you only follow
what comes in your mind?
a)Neither, just what springs to mind.
q)Do you have a preferred medium to work on? Why?
a)I would say none.
q) Tell us about your studio space. Where do you work? Do you listen to certain types of music while working?
q) Who are your favorite artists?
a)Magritte, hands down. Von Bayros, Russ Abbott, Adam Fuss, Mark Ryden, Odd Nerdrum, and Schuiten to name just a few. Honestly this list could go on for days...there are so many artists' work I admire. Durer, Dore and Beardsley were early staples for me.
q )When have you started using the internet and what role does this form of communication play for you, personally, for your art, and for your business?
q) Any interesting "rituals" before you start creating?
q) What projects mean a lot to you at the moment?
