Congratulations on winning Zealous Stories: Illustration! Your winning series Dones d’Aigua II focuses on the aquatic medium. Why is water such a significant part of your work?
Water is very important in this series: essential, in fact. That is because, from the moment I imagined the first artworks, I knew that water worked great to amplify emotions, which helped me express, with more intensity, the feelings that I wanted to communicate in every piece. Apart from this, the sensation of weightlessness inside the water allowed my characters to move in a more dynamic and expressive way.
Your work is often associated to your dreams, desires and nightmares. Do you find that drawing on personal experience enhances your creative process?
I don’t know whether it enhances my creative process, but basing my art on my personal experience, associating it with my inner life, letting my feelings flow through my work, makes my art something intrinsically mine. I think that art has to be personal.
