The art of failing.
My whole life is based on mistakes. I call these mistakes lessons. Lessons that life teaches you. Decision after decision you end up frustrated about your present situation. But now you know. You are more clever than yesterday. Better prepared for tomorrow.
My creative process is based on mistakes. I call these mistakes experiments. One mistake leads to an other and at the end you have found a new way to create. A way that is only yours.
So here you are, admitting your mistake. Embrace it.Own it. Everything happens for a reason. Whatever.
Buying too many pieces of paper, a mistake I make often as I am a paper lover.
These extra papers end up as the safety background while doing my paintings. A place to put the extra paint that is left. As a result, these papers end up being more colorful than the original paintings. And then I realized, I was splashing all this extra paint very strategically.
I was creating a multilayered artwork subconsciously.
And then this was not a mistake anymore. I started buying tons of extra paper in order to have more available backgrounds. And I started using more paint while printing, in order to have more extra paint to splash on these backgrounds. And then these multilayered artworks were part of my work by choice. And some of these artworks are now transformed into a colorful zine. And I named this zine MISTAKE, because this is how everything started.
Every zine originally was a 100x70cm paper, printed in both sides, that is folded and then cut into a zine. Every zine is 100% unique.
Edition of 9 pieces in total. Within the 9 zines there are 3 sub categories; 3 zines with gradient logo, 3 zines with blue logo, 3 zines with pink logo.
