collage_litapoliakova_01CH.89: Where do you draw your inspiration from?

LP: I’m just that kind of person who cuts daily in order to recycle the meaning and digest mass culture.

CH.89: Can you talk a little bit about what your creative thought process is like when starting a new project/ piece of artwork?

LP: It is non-stop. Randomly important starting point, an observation or irony (shouldn’t be that soft – I’m cynical and straightforward and when I’m bothered I can’t be silent). I contemplate, suck the pain, smells and colors, process and build up.

CH.89: Is there anything in particular that you would want people to take from your artwork?

LP: My art is only for alive; those who are not too lazy to feel! And it’s a kind of game with the viewer – what’s your decoding potential?

CH.89: When starting out an artistic task, do you think it is better to have a particular direction/set plan guiding your way? Or, is it better to act on impulse and go from there?

LP: Plan is also an option, for earthlings, but an artist should have plans for each letter of the alphabet. At least being unpredictable can turn out to be memorable and that’s what all artists want.

CH.89: What is one major lesson you’ve learned as an artist thus far?

11891223_1628215140794578_3720795130843477556_nLP: Still alive, which means more bitter than I thought.

CH.89: Do you regard personal style & taste to be of highest importance?

LP: I’m a sweet tooth, but also like to spice things up. One should have priorities, for sure, but style and taste can change. Depending on the goals .

CH.89: What is one thing you love about being an artist?

LP: It’s a pleasure to surprise others and awaken them! It’s not a puppet show and entertainment only, rather a full bouquet of feelings that artists can arouse.

CH.89: Is there anyone in particular, any artist’s that inspire you in any way?

LP: Number of moxie people! Dead and alive, but I’m not gonna name them. When I’m defeated, I read biographies, lots of people, who deserve respect for struggle and courage.

LP: I create mostly by hands, but in terms of documentation and promotion, it’s precious. It allows one to express the view differently and, logically speaking, it should lead to evolution.

CH.89: Do you enjoy traveling? If so, do you have a favorite city?

LP: Always on the move, at least for last 5 years constantly! Again, I’d better not advertise, but my rebellious soul finds soothing breeze by wavy warm water. I adore getting lost in Sliema, Porto, cities of the Northern Sea coast, when it’s not freezing. Now it’s time to check the other side of the globe; other travels are ahead.

CH.89: Do you have a favorite author or book?

LP: Those that laugh at madness of this life and make peace with it. I visited Oscar and bowed to him at Père Lachaise.

CH.89: Any future goals or plans for your artwork?

LP: While considering therapeutic aspects of the collage process, I wouldn’t mind collaborating with a volunteer organization.

CH.89: What’s the last song you listened to?

LP: Ok, not ashamed to name Elvis with “You’re always on my mind”.

CH.89: Any last words on the aesthetic of your artwork?

LP: It is an uphill road, but hopefully not the last. I address minds through instincts, melancholic pain, and stimulation of common sense mussels.

LP: Sip boldly, yours Goddess Lita!
