Akito Nara on intention, process, and being an alien:
My inspiration is my life, simple things – love, nature, universe, sadness, loneliness, power, peace, beauty, color, innocence...
I came from another planet.
I want to show people my insides by painting, I want them to feel something.
Society doesn’t see me as a great person, nobody wants to hear my message.
That’s why I paint. For my mental state and spirituality. It’s the only thing I can do, maybe.
I connect an emotion or thought or feeling as soon as I see the color placed on the canvas, I don't think about anything before I paint.
As an artist, I style how people live. I must keep going.
