Q: What's the best piece of advice you've been given as far as your art, inspiration or career?

MB: To look constantly with a "painting eye".

Q: What is the most important for you... the subject, the process or the final work?

MB: All three.

Q: If your work was edible, what would it taste like?

MB: Spicy.

Q: What is the one thing you need in your art studio to work, other than your art supplies?

MB: Good Lighting.

Q: What is your most favourite piece of your artwork, and why?

MB: I cannot distinguish "my children".

Q: In the era of the internet, why do you choose to continue to work with galleries?

MB: Because I believe that the work of art has an energy that is directly transmitted to the audience. The artist expresses the reflections of his soul and emotions in the work, it acquires its own independent spiritual life, and thus has the ability to cause similar vibrations in the viewer.

Q: Now the best part, tell us a joke.

MB: Painting is a form of cheating.
