Feeling pressure for making art? Just get f*cking over it!

Don’t let the pressure ruin it for you.

Like so many fellow artists, I used to take myself very seriously. I lacked self-confidence and considered my creations as something holy and untouchable.

Is he Picasso’s apprentice?

The Artist says:

“Hello there, my name is Marco but my alter ego who paints, is Marstiltskin. I started painting for 2 years now and I’m into art for like 4 years. My inspiration comes mostly from the different personalities of the people I meet or see. That’s why I mostly like to paint or draw faces or “characters”. My art styles are: modern-cubism, eroticism (sometimes) and pop art.”

Muhammad Bilal

When inspiration met digital

The Artist says:

“Through my artwork, I try to bring the outside in, as getting outside is good for the soul. While I make no attempt to portray actual plants or animals, I do want my creations to look like they could have lived or grown somewhere. I take inspirations from textures and love to recreate them in my own style. I work in all mediums as I am a textile designer by profession and work as freelancer, photographer, painter, sculptor and interior designer as well. In short art is my soul.”
