I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!

Interviewed artist: Pierre-Lagarde :iconpierre-lagarde:

:bulletyellow: Tell us what defines you as a person.
Lazy worker! I do my best to have on 25% of my time used for activity ;).

:bulletyellow: How did you find out about deviantART and why did you join the community?
First I came from Linux customization sites. My idea was to produce wallpapers mainly and some graphical tools for system and software interfaces.
As this activity begun to be a boring routine I slowly shifted to a more "artistic" one, mainly based on image processing and photography. I needed a more personal expression, I imagine. As some of my Linux friends told me about this site (and I will always thank them for that) I came here and found it was a great place to share and be inspired ! I was really impressed too by many artists here. So, a great place to be, for sure.

:bulletyellow: When and how did you discover your passion for art?
Art always had an important place in my life. My sister is a very good abstract painter and I always loved modern art and photography. My father also was a photography lover. And I always loved music too since I was a kid.
Though I won't use the word passion in any activity of my life. I only used this word for temporary state about some person around me ;). I love creating things, even if they are perfectly useless. As long as it is enjoyed by some, I'm fine ;)

:bulletyellow: What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?
I really don't know. The process is quite erratic. I'm only sure I don't create during my deep sleep periods :lol:. For inspiration also, sometimes it's the way others show me things that makes my mind move. And sometimes it's explicitly on demand or on ideas given by others that I try en experiment new things. My best example is about :iconkizukitamura: who has inspired many deviants here about kaleidoscopic artworks (and abstract too). :icondpressedsoul: have also inspired me a lot, especially about b&w art and he helped me express some thoughts that were hidden too.
But there are many others and it's always moving.

:bulletyellow: What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?
Well, I haven't chosen this path more than another at this point. I think I will only be legitimate to think so when I'm a professional, not before. For the moment I like creating images as a hobby and participate to projects around with images in my real life. But, to me, it's not really a significant choice as long as it's not my main activity and my way of life. What I'd say is that I'm involved in it and I like that.

:bulletyellow: What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?
I'm convinced that watchers are more involved than me in the meaning of my deviations ;)... Well, If I have to choose though, I'd say that one, in the most recent:  babyface.

It has many levels of thoughts to me. It represents the violence of our world and the way it burns naiveness and our hopes from the beginning of our life. A very sad and deep expression of despair. I'm not like that in real life, but I feel that inside all the time. So it's an expression of one of my hidden parts ;).

:bulletyellow: Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?
Always or never. I have no certitude, even I don't know if it's art. I only know I like to share, especially when it's sharing thoughts and moods with others.

:bulletyellow: Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?
It helps, clearly. It's often a catharsis. Especially when it makes me laugh ;).
I love to be surprised too, it's a kind of liberation each time.

:bulletyellow: What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?
This material life is so limited anyway. I never felt frustrated (that sounds strange but it's true). I've been angry sometimes, but never felt the need of something that was not a part of my life. I always felt like it was useless... in fact I never felt anything significant about that subject. Maybe I'm mad. Perhaps it's because I always love my dreams. To me, dreams are better than anything on this earth so I let them stay dreams and express them or part of them from time to time.

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?
I love them. Keep giving !
