Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"I think every painting is mostly born in the quick messy moment of doing a sketch. I like to sniff rap'e snuff and meditate before I sketch, to get in my spiritual zone and channel better. The rest is just following the steps of carving out something from nothing. That also channels colours n changes n develops and grows, but the seed of creation is the sketch."

Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"I dont know, they can do or feel whatever way they reflect themselves in my art. I make my art for myself, as a reflection of my insides. That in turn can speak to other people though, but everybody is different and I have no general aim at what it will do to another person, other than help them understand themselves further in such reflection."

Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"Every day has it own. Its hard to single any one out though. Right now Im just sitting at my computer tying."

Q&A

What is your favorite material to work with?

"It really depends on what I need to say. Most paintings are done with acrylics, most murals with spray paint, most drawings with black in pen, etc. And the materials I dont enjoy using, I just dont use them, haha."

Q&A

What motivates and inspires you?

"Im motivated in my want to improve myself as a person and humanity. I am inspired by people who get to the next level of their being, may it be enlightenment or artistic development. I want to be my potential, so I constantly strive for that."
-- Chris Dyer
Q&A

What makes a space special?

"All spaces are special. No space is any more or less special than the next. of course I do like it when a painting or mural ends in a place wher emore people can enjoy it. Since I cant take a mural home, it ends up being just a photograph, so if the place where the mural is framed in is unique or beautiful, that adds to the juxtaposition of energies."
-- Chris Dyer
Q&A

What’s unique about your work?

"I would like to believe that my art is an honest reflection of myself, a unique human, thus, the art is like no other. My style, medium and themes varies depending of what I feel I have to say at the time of making any art piece, but in general I would say I like colours, details, spiritual points of views, unity within diversity, love, and positivity."
