….I wanted to capture the essence of the struggle of artists who perform or do art despite circumstances. For me, still playing is very personal… since my father banned us children from learning musical instruments… He didn’t think it was a good career move, to be in the arts, being traumatized earlier by our great granddad who left his family penniless since he died a poor pianist. For me, this is rebellion against creative oppression. Although i did not follow a musical path, I entered the realm of visual arts. And it doesn’t matter where you put the artist, or whatever the situation. True artists will create no matter what.
