EVOCA1 (AKA ELIO MERCADO) – ‘Sanctuary

EXCERPT FROM EVOCA1 INTERVIEW

What is your most favorite and least favorite part of creating a mural? What is your most favorite and least favorite part of working in the studio?

My least favorite part of painting a mural is the prep work that goes on before I can actually start painting.  It could be from getting a concept approved to buffing the wall.

Once that process is done, then we can actually get into the paint, which is the best part. Seeing how the wall comes together and interacting with people in the street during the process is what makes it all worth it. In the studio, it’s pretty much the same. I really enjoy the creative process, but I struggle having to be indoors, confined to a space for long hours.

TRAN NGUYEN – ‘Remedy

EXCERPT FROM TRAN NGUYEN INTERVIEW

Do you have any rituals that help you tap into a creative flow? Are you still a night owl when it comes to working?

Coming up with ideas is probably the hardest step for me.  Sometimes, the best way to get the creative flow moving is to sit in my living room for a few hours without any music, noise or distractions.  If I sit long enough my mind will eventually get bored and wander off, which can slowly get that little hamster wheel churning.  I think this is what you call modern meditation?  And yes, I still hoot at night.
