INTERVIEW: JONAS LOOSE - COLORFUL REINVENTIONS
DESCRIBE YOUR WORK IN THREE WORDS.
Humorous, colorful, clever.
WHAT DOES YOUR ART FOCUS ON?
As simple as most of my artworks are, I always tryto fill them with a story or an idea that makes youthink, or at least lets you smile for a moment. Myart is influenced by my love for animals and nature,actual trends and everything that surrounds me.
WHAT TRIGGERS YOUR IMAGINATION?
I always have the best ideas while I drink coffee orpractice sports because they wake my brain and make me happy.
WHO’S HAD THE MOST INFLUENCE ON YOUR ARTISTIC GROWTH AND WHY?
My girlfriend. Because she is pushing me to stayactive. Otherwise I would probably not create asmuch art as I do now. She is the first person I showmy art to and I can see through her reaction if it’s good or wack.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR BIGGEST FAILURE AND HOW IT SHAPED YOU.
I failed a lot of times in my life. I truly cannot say
which one is the biggest. If you learn from your mistakes you don’t have to regret them. Failing is a part of life and I believe that I would not be the same person that I am today without all these failures.
BESIDES YOUR COMPUTER/PHONE, WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU CANNOT WORK WITHOUT?
My Sound System. Because good music isessential for my creative process.
HAS INSTAGRAM INFLUENCED YOUR WORK?
Yes definitely. You can find a lot of mind-blowingartists from all over the world on Instagram that’s the best inspiration you can get.
