AnN. Please introduce yourself to our readers.
I’m Mikaru from G.L.A.M.S., my new solo project! I’m a vampire, also!
AnN. You have originally started as a musician. How come that you started working as a painter?
I’m still a musician, active in BLACK LINE but also through G.L.A.M.S., which is a mixed-arts projects. I compose, sing, play the guitar. But I started to be interested in painting when we released the single LEGNA, it was obvious for me that I should create the CD cover, by myself, by my hands. So I painted in. And then I sculpted some masks we used for the next jacket, then I painted just for myself, and hold my first exhibition in Paris.
AnN. Which painting material do you prefer to use: Acrylic paint, oil paint, colored pencils, chalk, ink, copics or a mixture of different ones?
I use acryl, mostly.
AnN. Do you prefer to paint on larger format or more on small one?
I usually work on formats like 80*50 cm, sometimes bigger.
AnN. Please complete this sentence: For me, art is ...
freedom! I want to be free to express myself and my feelings, I want to choose, alone, and find MY way to be an artist.
AnN. Where do you get your inspiration from? From nowhere... From the Devil? (laughing) In fact, I need to be alone, listening to some relaxing music I like, and forgetting about the daily problems, in order to create something. It may take time. And then, when I start, ideas are coming very fast and I can make a full piece of art.
AnN. What do you want to express with your paintings?
Sometimes I express my own feelings, my loneliness, sometimes I just want to share the things I like, for instance when I paint some old Japanese traditional things. It’s my roots, what I like about my country. Or sometimes I just want to express beauty.
AnN. How long do you work on one of your paintings?
This can be very different from one to another.
AnN. What are your plans for the future? Do you have some new ideas you want to put into action?
I’m planning an European Tour this summer! I come from June 20 to July 6th with G.L.A.M.S., all over Europe. We’ll be 3 on stage, I’ll sing and play the guitar, with a bassist friend. Syu from BLACK LINE will be a DJ! It’s a very exclusive concept, with new songs and a new CD’s. Please come to meet us!
AnN. Please leave a message for you fans and our readers!
Let’s meet in Europe, come to listen our new sound! I need fresh blood!
a special thanks goes to Aurélie.
