Olivier Castillon Interview

When was the first moment you decided you wanted to be an artist? 

When I was young I expected to become a rock star :) I was playing Guitar in different rock bands... But I never expected to be a painter one day. This was a big surprise for me because I started to draw very late. I do not define myself as an artist today. I'm just a dreamer... I just love to express myself with my drawings and my paintings. The most important is to enjoy what you are doing of your life. 

We're glad you decided to be an artist!
Where do you find your inspiration?

The more you practice, the more you find inspiration. I use to find inspiration in my own life. Everything you can see on my work represent a moment of my life or the feeling of the moment.
Ok, I also have a crazy brain ;) 

If you could work with another artist, who would it be? / who is your favorite artist?

I have the chance to have many talented artist as friends, so it is as if I was working with them every day. I'm so lucky ! I would definitly love to share a piece with all of them... I love so many artist !... Hard to tell you who is my favorite artist today... First, I would say "All my bad apples friends", they are all so talented. I love the Ryden Familly, Marion Peck, Craola Simkins, nathan Ota, jeremiah Ketner, Sugarfueled, Ania Tomicka, Caia Koopman, Lola, Audrey Kawasaki... I forgot so many.. All of them are a great inspiration for me. 

                                                    One of our favorites :)

What has been the best moment in your career?

Become a Bad Apple Artist member is an amazing moment in my life !... Doing some paintings with this collective is a great challenge. I Definitly loved this moment when they asked me to become a member. We are as a family.

What is your ideal day?

I love rainy days... Then I can stay on my studio and let my imagination play... 
Or maybe a road trip day in the US. I love to spend time on the US national parks.

Let your imagination run wild!

Who is your role model?

Is it working if I tell "my parents" ? My parents have always been modest and honest. I can say that they are my model. 

If you could do anything, what would it be?

I'd like to have a teleport machine that could take me anywhere in the world in a second !... That could be sooo cool :) 

It sure would make the SF traffic easier!
Why do you create art?

Well, painting is a great way to escape and to be so on the mood. I love that feeling. It is also a new challenge on every piece.

What art do you most identify with?

I'd love to be identified as a pop surrealist painter. I don't really know.

How has your art changed throughout your life?

It changed a lot and very quickly. I started with some little illustrations. With always a girl and a bear in desolate landscape. Some new characters been invited gradualy... Today I do not like to limit myself. I love to draw whatever comes into my head.

What is your dream project?

Having a lot of shows all other the world. And travelling. Travelling inspire me a lot. I love to meet some new artists to share experiences.

What is the best piece of advice you have received?

Trust on you, feel free and be happy :)
