HEAR

Judy is a Punk by THE RAMONES  

"Currently I'm listening a lot to The Ramones and find myself really enjoying (and jumping around) to "Judy is a Punk."

READ

"As a kid I was fascinated with the nature field guides but the edition on "Mammals" was my favorite. I read it every night and carried it with me. I still have all my field guides. I wanted to be a naturalist or forest ranger but becoming an artist slowly and steadily became a reality. "

ART

'Bacchus and Ariadne' by Titian, 1522-23, 175 x 191 cm.

"Bacchus, god of wine, emerges with his followers from the landscape to the right. Falling in love with Ariadne on sight, he leaps from his chariot, drawn by two cheetahs, towards her. Ariadne had been abandoned on the Greek island of Naxos by Theseus, whose ship is shown in the distance. The picture shows her initial fear of Bacchus, but he raised her to heaven and turned her into a constellation, represented by the stars above her head. Titian’s little dog barks excitedly at the strutting faun with jasmine in his hair, trailing a mangled calf’s head alongside a caper flower, symbol of love."

FILM

"This is likely impossible or very difficult for anyone to answer, but I'll go with the film that always lifts my spirits, transports me and makes me want to be a filmmaker - Goodfellas."
