Day 323 – Human beings are works of art

D

I always feel inspired when I walk the streets of Florence. Artists that live and create here inspire me the most. This morning was a source of incredible inspiration for me. After meeting three artists and talking to them about different projects we can work on together, I arrived home with a big, dumb smile on my face. Ever since The human behind the artist was born I have met incredible human...

Day 310 – Reminder

D

This article was suggested to me by my brand new editor for The human behind the artist project. I say brand new although we went back and forward about it for a while now and this is where the funny part comes in. As any editor, in order to do the work you have to have the material. As any writer I should provide him with stuff to read and edit. Two weeks ago I was sure that I have done that and...

Day 241 – Off day

D

Today started a little unusual. I woke up with a terrible head ache and what seems to be a cold. Every muscle in my body was hurting, but for some reason I smiled and went right back to sleep for another hour. Even so, all day I felt the need to work and start writing again. After putting Ephia to sleep, I came to my favorite bar and started typing like crazy. What started out as an off day...

About life as an adventure, fatherhood and fine art photography with Mark Abouzeid

A

Mark Abouzeid is a remarkable storyteller. Ever since we had our first conversation in Piazza Santo Spirito, he never ceased to captivate my attention with his fascinating stories about life, travelling and fatherhood. Mark is not your regular artist, in fact he doesn’t fit any category really well, but his work is amazing and speaks for itself. He is truely a source of inspiration and I...

Day 206 – The finish line

D

With only three more interviews to go, The human behind the artist, is starting to take a clear shape and direction. I’ve been working hard lately to make a strong introduction for each of the artists involved in this project and the more words I place on paper, the more proud I am of the outcome. It’s been such a beautiful journey for me and besides meeting a lot of inspiring people...

An interview about the romantic stroll of an artist in Florence with Sara Amrheim

A

I’ve met Sara about a year ago, when she hosted the first aperitivo of the Creative People in Florence at her studio. She struck me as an amazing, kind woman, with intense blue eyes, friendly to every one around her, trying to create a welcoming environment for other artists to interact with each other. I remember admiring the jewelry made of paintings, as I called them, thinking I have...

Day 197 – What do you do? What is your job?

D

I’ve been meaning to write this article for a long time now and because I am extremely angry right now, I couldn’t think of a better time. We each have day jobs, dream jobs, jobs that we only do in order to pay bills and the rest of the unnecessary things in life that don’t actually represent us. If you would have asked me four years ago what do I do for a living, I would have...

Day 190 – Brain storming

D

I have my brain wrapped up around four different things I am suppose to do soon and fast. I think I am also under some kind of delusional spell, because although it’s poring outside and everything is gray and ugly, I am looking out the window and smile like it’s the most beautiful, sunny day. Who says it’s suppose to be sunny in order to have a beautiful day? The sun is...

Day 187 – Other people’s stories

D

Having a day off and nothing to do but house chores and playing with Ephia, my brain started working on its own as usual, looking for ideas, while washing the dishes, while cooking, while eating… it’s a good thing that my mind doesn’t wonder off when I am speaking to my daughter; imagine the mess that could be created. Anyway, usually when this free time comes along, I...

Day 148 – Good exhaustion and The human behind the artist

D

When you start building projects and giving life to your ideas you become more tired while planning everything than when you actually make it happen. I think this applies to all people whether they are artists or not. Personal projects are the trickiest, because they are comfort food for your soul, they always start small and easy, then after a while you find yourself in the midst of everything...
