Welcome back to another interview for our “Meet the Artist” series!
We are so excited to bring you this interview with an amazing artist, @Myle.Art !!!
When we first approached @Myle.Art for an animation of their art, they were so kind and supportive that we had to interview them!
Our collaboration was of this beautiful piece (Check out our Instagram for actual animation):
Get to know this amazing artist below!
1. What is your IG account? Do you have any other social media accounts for your art?
My IG is @Myletw.art.
My Facebook is my personal account but I also post my art on it sometimes.
2. What was the first art piece that you remember impacted you and inspired you to make art?
Comics, mangas and animes.
When I was 4, or basically as soon as I could pick up a crayon, I would try to draw my favorite TV characters onto the paper.
3. When did you realize that you enjoyed making art or when did you start making art?
I realized that I was born to do art. I started learning and making art very early on.
4. What style of art did you start off with and is it the same today? What else have you tried? What are your favorite styles of art?
I started with anime style, because it’s my first inspiration.
Gradually, I started playing games and my style moved on to a more semi-realistic style (something that between comic style and realistic style).
My style now has been changing from what I started off with. Recently, I started working with semi-realistic style and realistic for academic art in school.
5. Which is your favorite art piece you have made and why?
I love all the works that I have been making.
They are all my favorites!
But these two have a special place for me:
6. When did you decide to start a social media account for your art? Were you nervous? Excited?
This account actually started as a personal account, but I also posted my artwork… But then, after getting advice that I should make an art account and post only art, I started doing it.
It really motivates me to do my art when people say nice things and love your artwork.
Yes, I was feeling something between nervous and excited. So yes, both to answer your question.
7. How has your experience been with your social media account(s) for your art? What are the positive outcomes? Is there any negative outcomes?
It’s totally great!
On the positive side, you are getting inspirations from other artists, getting love and support, which somewhat really helps motivate me to make art.
On the other hand, I don’t really want to let those “numbers” or “algorithms” control how I feel about my art. I love doing art, not love following the “numbers”.
8. What advice would you give any artist out there who are considering sharing their art on social media?
It depends on your personality.
Can you listen to other people thoughts about your arts? Can you take criticism? Are you not going to stress about those numbers? And a lot more.
I, myself, find that social media is something that really motivates me and helps me connect with other artist friends.
Entertainment with a Social Justice Twist!
