INTERVIEW: VENUSMANSION - PINK DREAMS

PINK DREAMS

 

HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK?

All the works currently created are under the name of Venus Mansion. I try to start from my own personal emotions that arise from the object and further these ideas to fully create the narrative. The narrative varies from piece to piece but I would like to keep these from the audience. Rather than to

give away what the purpose or meaning behind the works of Venus Mansion, I would prefer my audiences to have an open interpretation and enjoy the works more freely.

WHAT DOES YOUR ART FOCUS ON?

Emotions, objects, and colors. These are primary focuses of Venus Mansion but my art also expresses who I am. To be frank, Venus Mansion does not have a set of messages it wants to convey through art. As I mentioned before, it is the means for me to express myself and I would

like my audiences to form their own opinions anddraw a positive influence on creative activities.

WHAT TRIGGERS YOUR IMAGINATION?

It all starts when I see an object through the emotion I would be feeling at that moment. On other occasions, it comes during daily activities, when I am listening to music, passing by people and having conversation with my friends. My imagination sparks throughout the day.

WHEN DID YOU JOIN INSTAGRAM?

April 2014.

HOW DID IT MAKE YOUR WORK EVOLVE?

As time went by, I got attached to Venus Mansion and watched myself grow as the art works evolved. Because Venus Mansion is a way to express my personal emotions, collaborating with other brands and attention from the media is a lot to take in these days.

WHO ARE THE PEOPLE YOU WORK WITH?

Currently, I mainly work by myself. Collaborating with brands or other artists are valuable ways to create powerful energy and form new ideas.

However, I currently would like to focus on developing Venus Mansion without collaborations.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU POST?

I normally post once every week.

WHAT ACCOUNTS DO YOU FOLLOW RELIGIOUSLY?

@plastikmagazine @love.watts @artsxdesign

WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO?

I usually listen to all sorts of music. To pick some

artists, Adele, Lana Del Ray, Sia and Sam Smith are my favorite artists. I turn on their songs whenever I get really focused on my work and think they provide some comfort. These days, I'm getting inspired by Amy Winehouse.

WHAT ARE YOUR LATEST PROJECTS OR COLLABORATIONS?

I recently had chance to work with Vogue Korea on V-Series. The project had six hats from different brands and I was to work on illustration and coloring the items.
