Lydia Wolens :  What is the limitation(s) of your chosen media for full expression of your feelings/ideas?

Daimon Xanthopoulos : I create non-fiction works with photography, meaning I can only visualize what happens or what I can capture. Partly this is what makes this project for me personally so interesting.

Lydia Wolens :  What is beauty?

Daimon Xanthopoulos : Beauty is a state… it’s something that attracts your eye or the attention and keeps it locked on. Beauty is for everyone something personal.

Lydia Wolens :  What is the future of Art?

Daimon Xanthopoulos : I believe art is defined by our times and artists making sense of that time in their expressions. Artist will always be part of society and so will Art, but in what form or how relevant, only the future will tell us.

Lydia Wolens :  What Artists inspire you ?

Daimon Xanthopoulos : A big inspiration for me is the music of Eleni Karaindrou, Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson and Stef Osadzinski. Music is for me an important way to get to my own thoughts. I admire the paintings of William Turner and many others.

Lydia Wolens  : What is the poetic focus of your art?

Daimon Xanthopoulos : The work ‘Faith in Europe - Between belief and reality’ is about our desire for belief and identity. A connection to the earth we live on and the human search for spirituality.

Lydia Wolens :  Can Art change the World?

Daimon Xanthopoulos : Art is certainly effecting the world for a very long time. I think that is something very special. It’s something that makes art relevant but gives us also a responsibility.

ARW :  What is your inspiration for creating artworks?

ARW : What role emotions plays in your Art?

Daniel Young : I think emotions play a large role in my art. Emotion comes in when I'm making decisions, but once I begin the physical work I do my best to turn emotions off which can be hard. Emotions can be tricky because they can make being objective and decisive difficult.

ARW : What Social issues are important to you?

Daniel Young : My work often includes issues involving war and politics. However, the environment and animals are also really important to me. I care a lot about animal cruelty. I think it’s because all the negative things happening to nature and to animals are caused by humans, so there is guilt there.
