8 Questions to Armin Ceric

What is your background and how did you end up doing what you are doing today?  

That is basically what I'm trying to find out in my work – if there's a link between where you came from to where you are going to in your live. On the one hand I doubt it but on the other hand I have this emotional link to my past. I think I wouldn't do an exhibition of my work, if I could answer this question. Then I would stay at home and be happy that I found out.

What is your motivation?

I am trying to be brave and live a life without fear. I want to look back with the feeling that I somehow understood what life is all about.

Who would you like to work with?

I would have loved to do a trip with my father to Bosnia where he grew up to do a documentary. Unfortunately he died in 2001.

What is your favorite subject in your painting?

I am obsessed with people. I tried out still-lives, but it bores me to death.

If your weren´t an Artist, what else would you be?

Then I wouldn't be an artist. It has nothing to do with a job... it is more like an attitude towards life. I didn't do a lot of artworks recently, but I never stopped being an artist.

What is your favorite place to be?

My bed.
What does a typical Sunday morning look like for you?

Spending a lot of time at my favorite place including a hot coffee and company.
If you were a color, what color would it be and why?

Pearl white. On the first look it's white – but if you look closer it's shimmering!
