In the run-up to Art Trade, we introduce the participating artists by asking them some questions. Today: Eleonora Stol, who doesn't like Art Trade, but loves Fleur & Wouter.
What does an artist do throughout the day?
Get inspired, look at my pieces and attack them with everything I have. Emptying out tubes of paint, making sketches and studies. I constantly think about my work, even when I travel or go for a stroll.
Which artwork (well-known or unknown) do you wish you had made yourself?
Nothing! Only my own work counts for me, I’m inspired by myself and nothing else matters. If I would get off on someone else’s work I wouldn’t be a real artist.
What would you have become, if you weren’t an artist?
I would have lived inside my fantasy world.
Why do you think Art Trade is a good idea?
Well I don’t, actually. But I like Fleur & Wouter.
What other projects are you working on?
A big exhibition in Israel with a series inspired on the desert. A project in Italy, they love my work there, and I’m going to Paris for inspiration and gallery visits.
