Here is the latest edition of Behind the Art with Roxana Barahona Oliva
In this fifth edition we get some insight from artist Roxana Barahona Oliva of RoxanaBo Arts.
Where do you find continued inspiration?
I get all inspiration from sadness or happiest moments in my life, within these ends I became able to create mental images clearly,
very raw feelings are the clue for me.
What do you hope to achieve?
I want learn more about tattoo art (I am a tattooer too) and I would like the opportunity to take a part in more exhibitions abroad.
Learning from the vision from different countries and their cultures, as they enrich us as people and contribute to increasing our inspiration and topics to talk about.
What are your struggles?
I think every artist deals with the concept of art as not a real profession. The rejection from galleries where everything is controlled by few people who decided what art is or what it is not.
Recently realistic painters are excluded from these sites due to their preference for “modern art”.
Have you achieved what you want?
I am very ambitious and hardworking person so there are always goals I want to reach.
Even so, I think I have achieved a big part of my dreams.
Some of my followers know I am an engineer and that
I decided that I would not work as such, instead pursuing my dream to became an artist, carrying the fear of having or not having success.
But people have embraced my work and that is an honour to me.
How did you achieve your success?
Being disciplined, working hard and most importantly sharing with all who love art (like me) all the knowledge I have because to me sharing is the principle of success.
There is non sense to deny education to others just to feel you are “better” or wiser.
My journey started opening my facebook page (facebook.com/roxanaboarts) and posting all my work there.
Sharing it in art groups was the way clients started to ask for my work.
