How does a fashion blogger like myself feature a dope ass artist from New Jersey? Check out my interview questions with this dope artist below and follow his Instagram to see his amazing art!
7 Interview Questions
1. Geornee: Why the name Cloudy Visions? and what makes you different from any other artist out there?
Cloudy Visions: My wife came up with the name after having some convo's on how I want people to see and feel my art. Cloudy because clouds can be interpreted in many ways as far as how they look. You can ask 10 people what does that cloud look like and get 10 different answers. Visions because I paint in loud colors and I try to put messages in each painting to visually grab the lookers attention. I'm not into painting like a dog eating a bone, I want you to see and have questions about my stuff.
2. Geornee: What or Who motivate you to become the man you are today, and how does art play a role in that?
Cloudy Visions: -God for giving me the talents to do this
-I was raised by a single mother,She made me the man I am today.
- I've gone through a lot which has allowed me to mature and gain knowledge through life experiences and put those on canvas .
-being a husband and a father I do this for them.
-My art goes hand in hand with music. I am always diggin for new sounds and artist. I am an artist who cannot paint in silence.
- and traveling to different places or walking with headphones on
All these things work for me
3. Geornee: I notice on your Instagram you are marry and have a beautiful daughter. Tell me how did you know she was the Queen for you and how are you able to balance art and family?
Cloudy Visions: We have been together for 9 years married for 2. I knew she was it because she was just different,our first date I left thinking "man I've never met any women like that before" and through good and bad she's been there always. She's also supports my dreams and goals and I for her and most importantly puts God before me. This combo makes it hard not to love her and give her the world.
-I also work a full time corporate job so it's just making sure I cover all my bases (work and family/husband life) . I tend to paint at night and stay up till late. As long as I get 4-5 hrs of sleep I'm usually cool.
4. Geornee: If you had the chance to do a feature painting with any artist dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Cloudy Visions: Probably Jusin Bua I love his style it's funky and colorful. I feel like our styles and blend well
5. Geornee: What advice do you have for other artist out there that grinds 24/7, that work late nights creating art pass 5am?
Cloudy Visions: Don't stop! people will sometimes understand your stuff and others won't. I've learned to paint for me. If you are getting into this just for money this probably isn't the thing for you. "Love what you do and do what you love" That statement pushes me every time I feel like I want to give up.
6.Geornee: What do you see yourself five years from now? and what are your goals in the long run as an artist/ entrepreneur?
Cloudy Visions: I really want to travel and paint in other places. Do my first solo show this summer finally! And be a part of as many art shows as possible, the goal is to have my work seen and purchased by people who get it,Those who get the message. Have my own house with a art studio and space for my family. And eventually create books for kids. Yea that would be dope
7.Geornee: How does an artist like you have close to 4,000 followers on Instagram less than 7 months? And why do people love your art so much?
Cloudy Visions: I'm not sure, I swear I get bugged out every time I get a large group of likes or followers. You guys don't know but you (my followers) push me. And I follow I bunch of people too. I like to follow people from all over the world to see how they are living. Gain inspiration from and picture myself in their environment.
I think people like my color patterns and the messages but then again I don't know. I also interact with people some artist are so gassed that they forget that these people allow you to do what you do. but I appreciate every one of them even the spam pages lol
