Polyester: I grew up in Montevideo (Uruguay, South America) in a neighborhood called Palermo, that is best known for its music, particularly a genre that goes by the name of candombe. I used to live in front of an abandoned house that was taken by people who would go out on the streets and spend all day drinking wine and playing drums by the door.
What Inspired You To Do Art?
In my opinion mostly pain and fear, as well as things that I don’t understand. I need to put them in paper, just to do something about it. Transform it into something else or just let it out. I tend to feel too much and usually don’t get anything about life, so I like to play around with that nonsense. Absurd excites me.
Also I get a lot of pleasure through my eyes, just by the act of watching. So, in conclusion, I guess I need to make something out of my experiences, whether it’s feelings or just images I get. I would become insane if I couldn’t draw. It is also a way of sharing with people and creating my own world, which is infinite because anything is possible there, in fantasy, and I’m crazy about exploring my inside and all those possibilities.
