TheDArtCo meets Chunchun
Chunchun is a young gifted artist and graphic designer born and educated in Galicia, Spain.
TheDArtCo: When did you decide to become an artist?
Chunchun: I didn´t decide it really. Drawing and painting have been my hobby since I was born. There was no decision there, haha. Not only did I like to draw but I also enjoyed looking at art. I was lucky my father likes to travel a lot, so in my childhood I visited lots of museums around Europe. I’ve been a Japanese manga fan forever too, that influenced my style a lot and still does. Now I work more with technology but I’m a drawer in heart.
TheDArtCo: From your works we see that your artistic story is multifaceted. Please can you explain your philosophy? Also, why did you choose to do digital art specifically?
Chunchun: There are many forms of art and I don’t think that one should exclude the other, on the contrary, I think they enrich each other.
Each face of art is interesting and I like to do different things. Also mix different styles. If I did just one thing, I’d probably get bored.
I can enjoy the concentration of drawing, I enjoy the lights when taking a photograph, I enjoy compositions. I have works that have a very specific idea and worked behind it. I have other more spontaneous ones, what people like to call “inspiration.”
When I was a child, I was lucky enough to have access to computers from an early age. I started making random polygons with Microsoft Paint on my father’s computer and later using Adobe Photoshop. The first time I used it, it seemed to me that it did magic.
TheDArtCo: What software do you use to create your artworks?
Chunchun: As I said before I use Adobe software, there’s no special reason to it, it’s just the software I learnt to use in the Design school. Well, I used Photoshop before.
TheDArtCo: What do you think about blockchain art?
Chunchun: The current outlook in the world of NFTs is very interesting and promising. I think Blockchain technology is not only gonna change art, its gonna change a lot of things. I’m curious. I think this is great for artists and for collectors, it is easier, quickest and safer.
TheDArtCo: Your Artworks are very intense and generating sometimes some complex feelings. Can you help us understand where this tension may come from?
Chunchun: I am a complex person, with many facets. I think life is very complex and I suppose that is seen through my works. Anyway, I’m not very sure, each piece is different. Some come after a lot of deliberation and others just come, I don’t really know where from, hahaha.
TheDArtCo: We see that your artworks can be done in different styles. Can you help us understanding this? We love all your artworks very much, but there is some distance among them. Is there a learning process in collecting your art?
Chunchun: Many of the differences between my works have to do with learning phases, for example, fifteen years ago I drew all the time, eight years ago I took many photographs but I never abandon a technique, some techniques come after others and also mix with each other. becoming a new thing that I had not even considered. I feel that I am still learning and I still have many ways to go, many styles to mix.
TheDArtCo: Digital art and DeFi: what do you think about it?
Chunchun: I think in good hands is great and in bad hands can be terrible, haha. Let’s see how all of this evolves.
TheDArtCo: What are you going to show us in the next future? What’s the style what will see and collect in the future or are you planning some evolution?
Chunchun: I don’t have any plans yet, but I’m getting less figurative with time. I don’t know about my next pieces, I’m just enjoying the ride, if you don’t enjoy it, it has no sense to do it.
