Michael Scoggins from New York, United States.
What were you like in childhood?
I was shy but very friendly. I enjoyed drawing and reading. My mind would wander a lot and it still does today. I have an overactive imagination.
How many pieces have toy made your giant notebook drawing?
Probably a few hundred? I truthfully have never added them all up.
How long does it takes for making a piece of work?
The average is about a week. I spent a lot of time drawing lines and also working in the sketchbook.
Do you think explanation is need for art?
No. I can’t always be there to explain concepts so a work of art must stand on its own. Plus I think the viewer should come to their own conclusion.
What makes something art?
I think anything could be considered Art. Art is about ideas and if those ideas are presented in a unique and interesting way then it’s Art.
What makes you keep making art?
I don’t know what I would do if I could not make art. It is a part of me like eating and sleeping.
What kind of impact do you hope that your work has?
I hope to make people think outside of what they are comfortable with. I want to connect with the viewer.
Do you believe the world will become better?
I truly hope so.
What is political?
All Art is political. If it is not then it is simply decoration.
