Interview with ROBERTA MARRERO

q)Walk us through an intimate day in your life:

a)Well, I am afraid I have a pretty boring life. I wake up, I use to go out in the morning to ship pieces to customers. I cook, I work, I read, I watch this moment of my life I live almost like a nun and I like it.

q) Where did you grow up/where do you live now and how does that contribute to your art?:

a)I was born in Spain and I grew up there. I have been living in London and now I live in Copenhagen. Spain is very catholic and when I was born Franco (the dictator) was still ruling the country. He died when I was 3 years old but his influence marked my childhood and teenager years, it was not easy for anybody outsider to live there back then. These two circumstances had a big impact on me making me use catholic imagery in a very profane way and hating anything fascist.

q) What is your earliest memory that propelled you to create?:

a)Marvel comics.

q) Tell us a little bit about your creative process:

a)I have and idea and I put that idea on paper. I work almost like in a trance and I don't stop until is finish.

q) How do you wish for your art to be perceived?:

a)I like my work to be open to interpretations. Every viewer has a different perception of everything, that is very interesting.

q) What do your internal dialogues sound like?:

a)Chaos under control.

q) Do you feel that there are limitations to what you want to create?:


q) Do you feel art is vital to survival and if so, why?:

a)In my case it is because it is what I can do and what I need to do. When I am working I don't think about anything else.

q) Describe a world without art:

a)Sad, boring, empty.

q) Tell us a secret, and obsession:

a)If I tell you a secret then it wouldn't be a secret. I have an obsession with books and dolls.

q) Where can people see more of your work on the internet?:
