Hey Daniel, Tell us a bit about yourself.
INTERVIEWING – DANIEL TATARINOW
EXHIBITION III – EXPERIMENTS
I’m Daniel, 18 years old and i am a student of the 12th grade. I live in Germany now for 15 years, i was born in Kirgisien so i was grown up with the russian culture. I’m working with photoshop now for 3 years. Apart from school and photoshop i like to make sports like football and basketball, but i’m not really good at them. I also hear a lot of diffrent music, mostly rnb or german rap music.
When and how did you first become interested in Art?
I first became interested in Art three years ago when i got Photoshop. I started doing small things like signatures and small adjustments of photos. Then after two years practicing with photoshop i made my first complete painting(before that I just made some sketches and speedpaintings) for the wacom contest: “Bring your Vision to life”. Six months ago i also started doing traditional art, after i made a project week at school, where i made my first acrylic painting.
What are your influences in general?
My influences are my surroundings, mostly the nature, thats how i got the most ideas for my artworks. But i also get inspired by other artists, music, movies and television, i gain inspiration from everywhere.
Is anyone in your family an artist?
Not really. My brother has talent at drawing, but he is to lazy practice because of his work and other stuff. I think if he would have studied and practiced his skills he could have become a great artist.
What is your favorite piece so far in your career?
Thats a tough question, because i’m really bad rating my own work, but i like the “Witch Hunt” piece the most. I spent so much time doing this piece and i learned so much while doing it. Of my traditionall paintings i think the “Reset the World” piece is my best, i experimented a lot in that piece.
What do you see yourself doing in the near future?
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Cosmosys is awesome;D
