Tu marches , l'ombre t'imagine elle se glisse en toi tu cèdes à ses caresses tu t'égares dans son grand manteau , elle dégrafe ta tunique l'air de la nuit s'échappe le ciel s'allume au lointain il y a l'aurore il y a le matin .
En quête de la nuit de l’âme, de la soif inextinguible, du désir inassouvi. Qu’on me donne des visages magiques, pas des hot dogs, dans cette nuit ténébreuse. Qu’on me donne des têtes travaillées, des yeux de sphinx, poursuite inégalée de quelque chose ou de quelqu’un qui n’est de nulle part.
q)Please introduce yourself and tell us something about yourself and
Trevor Wayne. I started doing art as a little kid inspired by Saturday Morning
Cartoons. It led me to liking to do a lot of portraiture. I attended art school
in Chicago and then moved to Los Angeles where I live currently.
q) Talk about your art.
a)Although my favorite art genre is French Impressionism, I identify
with Pop Art because of the cartoons that had inspired me as a kid. I really
liked the solid lines and colors, and the many ways that characters were drawn
in so many different styles from show to show.
A decade ago I switched from
pencils to digital, really liking the very flat comic-like feel to my
portraits. I even liked better that there was no texture.
Through the years as my work
circulated more, people often asked to buy the originals- of which there was
none since it was digital. They often seemed dismissive and disappointed. I was
told more that a few times that if I painted, people would be more into what I
do, and that digital art is not “real” art.
Eventually, feeling I needed a
change anyway, I gave in and tried it. I actually found I prefer it! I really
like the way it feels. As more time went on, people still believed my paintings
were digital! I can’t win! So I decided to start painting on the backs of the
I intended it to be an aggressive
way of showing it was indeed canvas, and actually made the canvas itself
important to the piece. It works really well for the series of dolls (and some action figures) I’m doing. Its
taking antique imagery, creating it to be a pop version, and painting it
traditionally in a non traditional way. I like to think of it as
q) What’s the central theme of your work?
a)The central theme of my work really is to just lighten the mood! I
want my art to bring good energy to the space it inhabits. Whatever the subject
matter may be.
most beautiful dream
think that would be owning a few little cabins,, maybe one in the desert and one
in the mountains,, and being able to jump back and forth and paint with
beautiful views and isolation!
q) your worst nightmare
really sure. I don't like to spend any time giving energy to thoughts like
that. Im not sure I want to dig thoughts like that up! haha
way to spend a day off?
the best day off is a day trip to another town, a nice hotel with a bar by the
pool. Id probably still bring some art to work on…
what inspires you ….
inspired by friends, even if what they do is different. Im glad to see them
working hard for what they're passionate about. That makes me want to work
harder at what I do.
that you love….
really a reader, since I have little time, but my “Golden Heroes” artwork was
just in the book “Golden Girls Forever” by Jim Colucci! Its an in depth behind
the scenes look at the show. I read the whole thing quickly. I love that show,
and if you do you should get the book as well! Its on Amazon!
a big music fanatic, but when working on art I listen to video game music on
Pandora or Talking Heads!
are you really excited about right now?
credit score went up!!!
still working on my “doll” portraits. I think I have at least a dozen more Id
like to do with that series.
haven't got far enough with my current projects to really settle on new ideas
yet. They will come.
can people see more of your work on the internet?
