Here is an interview I found with Bianca Green that I found interesting/inspiring. Enjoy!
Travelettes: What got you in to art?
Bianca Green: I have always been doodling, collaging, painting.. since I can remember. I just never considered that being art.
T: How is travelling part of your life?
BG: I never had planned to travel as much as I do. It just happened to be that way and I am very thankful for that. And it does become a little addictive. Once I’m at one place for too long, I feel like getting on a plane.
T: How does your current home influence your art?
BG: Currently I am living in Uruguay, South America. When I moved out here one year ago, I had no idea what to expect. It was the best thing I’ve done in a long time. I found peace, nature, colors and a lot of time to create and get my work out there. It all started here so I will forever be thankful.
T: Where do you find your inspiration?
BG: Traveling, beautiful places and cities, food, music, people…just about anything and everything can inspire an idea and create an image in my brain.
T: Where is home?
BG: Home is wherever my bed is.
T: What is your favourite piece and what is so special about it?
BG: I don’t have a favorite. I have strong and different relationships with every piece I’ve made. But after I created the world map “LOUIS ARMSTRONG TOLD US SO,” many doors have opened for me. So I am very thankful and happy about that one.
T: What art-related advice would you give other girls who travel?
BG: Any trip you take, let it be far away or the city next to yours, it will show you new things. While you travel, soak in as much as you can. You could find inspiration in everything you see. A dress, plate, front door, wall color, landscape – even in a hairdo. Have your camera prepared, but also don’t forget to see with your own eyes.
T: What does your workplace look like?
BG: I mostly sit in the living room, at the dining table. Behind me is this antique furniture that I found in an auction house and painted myself. Her name is “Queen Elizabeth II” because she is old and majestic, and yet so graceful and charming. Because of her I also bought four antique chairs that are beautiful, but not that comfortable.
T: Who is your role model?
BG: My Father. He was an incredible artist and lived by his rules. He created unique and one of a kind things, made music, was into filming, enjoyed good food and loved to travel. I am my Father’s daughter (edwardfredgreen.com).
T: What are your plans for the future?
BG: Travel as much as I can. Africa is on top of my long list. Keep creating and exploring. Endless opportunities. Life is good!
