Super Future Kid
Name: Super Future Kid
Favourite word: ectoplasm
1) I read that your name Super Future Kid reflects your obsession with the things that represented the future when you were a kid. Are you still looking towards the future with the excitement, considering the global warming, zombie apocalypse, and so on?
Yes of course, I am a great Sci-Fi fan and can’t wait to see what the future will hold, especially tech wise! With particle physics n all, things like beaming, food replicators, warp speed and wormhole travel seem to become more and more possible and who wouldn’t like that?!
2) Who are your heroes?
Harry Potter, Lord Voldemort, MacGuyver, Teal’c and Lieutenant Worf.
3) Do you ever suffer artist’s block? And if so, what are your first-aid methods?
So far I haven’t, but I guess that’s because I really love doing what I do. I sometimes take 2 weeks off from painting to do something completely different and clear out my mind in a way and after that I’m usually even happier to finally be back in the studio.
4) Do you carry a sketchbook around with you?
I have a sketchbook but its big (A3 size) and also quite heavy so I rather not carry it around with me. It’s in my studio all the time and serves all sorts of purposes besides being a sketch book; it also makes a good board to put things on in my lab, like plates and brushes ‘n’ things like that.
5) What looks crazier scenario- and colour-wise, your artworks or your dreams?
I love dreaming. It’s one of my favourite activities, and in a way my work is related to the logic you find in dreams, but I can’t really say which is crazier; after all they come from the same brain.
P.S. I have noticed that pink colour is present in 90% of your work. Is there a secret meaning behind it?
Ha, yes, pink has always been one of my favourite colours and is quite dominant in some of my works, but it usually makes up an equal part with all the other colours I use.
