Etro is Play… which elements do you like to play with in the creation of your works?
I love to “play” with the vibrations achieved by mixing colours that aren’t necessary complementary, always resulting in something new.
Etro is Colour… if you could be any colour, which would you be and why?
Blue in all its variants because it reminds me of my childhood.
Etro is Travel… if you were to travel to any place real or imagined place in the world to spark new ideas for your art, where would you go?
I would travel back in time to visit Paris in the early twentieth century in order to have direct contact with what was the centre of modern art, and to live the same experience the artists creating in this artistic period.
Etro is Nature… if you could be any animal, which would you be and why?
A T-Rex for its physical strength, and because, not taking into account its bond with its own offspring, is selfish and demonstrates unequivocal ruthlessness towards all forms of life. ☺
