Jaime, tell us a little about yourself…
I'm an education teacher, writer, christian coaching, I have a prophetic gift since 10 years and that's why I travel for about 150 nations, I'm from Honduras, my city is Choluteca and my hobby is art at all levels.
When he woke up his desire to be an artist?
I am an art collector because I have a museum project and I always buy art from various artists around the world. One day, while I was in Paris, France, the desire to create art in me awoke, and i did. I admire a tree in my country because it is always green and has fruit and I painted, and from there I was amazed by my work!
What kind of art do you like best?
I love all Art, I admire the spirit of the artist and could spend hours or days admiring the art!
How he developed his style (techniques)?
My style or TECHNIQUE is Total Naif. I started and didn't stop that I discovered painting.
Cite if you had artistic influences in your works and which artists?
I don't have much influence from an artist, I admire art in general and as I don't know styles, I really see the spirit of the artist in his work, I am very sensitive to all styles, colors or shapes, although I confess that Naif attracts me deeply!
Do you have a family member or acquaintance who is an artist?
I do not come from artistic caste and I have many artist friends and friends of art because I am passionate about art!
Living from art is possible?
Well, I didn't live, but I think that if there is dedication and everything is given by art, you can live on art because it is a job and the Bible already says that the worker is worth his salary! Art is still a very virgin industry, but we can build, there is a lot to do!
Ever thought about not acting with more art? can comment because?
I paint because I want to leave a legacy for my generations and if I have the character to buy many works of art, I believe I have the character to generate a lot of art to release the love of art because art is for everyone!
What skills are needed today for the artist?
One is dedication, insistence, resistance and a lot of love but above all humility because it is very silly to think that we arrived just because they gave us a decoration or we did some exhibitions or because they know us in the neighborhood, the artist is a creator and the creator must not stop leaving an inheritance!
What do you feel when you create or appreciate a work of art?
My art and I are one, to create is to express emotions and that is why each work is an emotion expressed by the artist, so each work reveals the spirit of the artist when it is created or when it copies!
Your inspirations to create a work of art?
I believe in moods, moments, atmospheres and climates everything that inspires you to create your work!
Which art has impressed you the most so far?
It really is what I like! I am passionate about my art because only I know myself and only I know how what I produce comes out of me!
You must always be creating or creating only at certain times?
I have a schedule and a discipline to create art but I always enjoy the emotions, the places, the moments, environments and climates to create!
The product of your work is unique or has a close or distant relationship to your previous work?
My work is a unique piece, although it always has the same element as the tree, but there is always the creative spirit in my work to generate a unique piece!
What are the challenges of art / artist in the current scenario?
The artist has to reinvent himself, use digital marketing, invest, show yourself and be active! If you don't sell, keep producing and showing off!
Social networks have helped you to spread your work?
I am a public figure of my work and I have used this resource and of course the networks have given me a great help to show my art!
How plastic arts can contribute to education and culture?
Fine arts can educate the community when there is a spirit of cultural heritage rather than selling, although it has to be sold, art is for everyone and this is the work that the fine arts have ahead of them to educate generations with inclusive art and not just for the elites!
How you analyze the qualities of a work of art?
Well, there is from artist to artist, aesthetics and materials speak more about the artist's work than his fame or school!
What are the criteria for stipulating the value of a work of art?
Art is priceless, it is priceless and therefore the price must be given by the artist himself and not by a curator, I will never understand why the artist is expected to grow old or die so that his work is consecrated or priced, I believe that it is the artist himself who must value his work!
Talk about your projects today…
My projects are many, first of all I decided to donate my art to carry out those projects that are museums to educate generations, I want to sell, grow and take my work far to get a good price and build this project that is already underway!
What's your advice for those just starting out?
That they follow and believe that it is good to have influences but it is very necessary to create! It's a murder and a worldwide waste to want to be Picasso! Or Rembrandt! When the land needs unique people and unique work!
If you want to leave a message…
No matter the day-to-day problems or blockages we continue, we are not employees of art, we are creators and sensitive people, therefore, we have to leave a patrimony, cultural heritage!
About your exhibitions, have any comments regarding, feelings…
Each exhibition is an emotion that is not pressured by the expectation of sale but by the expectation of showing the world my spirit in each work!
Could you comment on some artistic curiosity.
My dream is to educate new generations with my art, leaving them my inspiration to continue because art is art not because it is studied but because art is ancient and not the consequence of great schools! I dream of seeing works by artists highly valued living and not dead! The artist should be honored in life, a dead person cannot speak of his work, a living man.
How would you define your art in one line?
My art is the manifestation of a childlike spirit, vivo, pure and very naive!
