Art is something an artist can't help but share to the public whether they will love it or not. It is that courageous spirit in every artist that makes them tend to create aside from the passion that they have burning aside. This is just among the things we have learned after this interview with K-Nor, a talented street artist from Brooklyn, New York.

An Interview With K-Nor
APA: What legacy do you want to leave?
K-Nor: I guess more than anything I’d like to create visually compelling artwork across a variety of mediums that is unmistakably my own. On a deeper level, I would like my work to have a definite position on what it means to be human, and to inspire self-reflection in the viewer.
APA: What do you want people to obtain when they look at your work?
K-Nor: I aim to create a sort of euphoric nightmare, something that evokes a sense of bliss or freedom and at the same time makes you feel uneasy.
APA: What is your workflow? What is your creative process from start to finish?
K-Nor: I start with a rough idea of what I’d like to depict and gather references to begin my sketch, then let the piece grow organically.
APA: What is your opinion of art in the 21st century?
K-Nor: I love art and I think there are a ton of folks out there doing incredible stuff today, unfortunately the onset of social media can make it feel like a chore to wade through all the crap you don’t want to see.
APA: In the next decade what do you wish to accomplish with your creative gifts?
K-Nor: In ten years I hope to be making a decent living off my artwork with very minimal external direction.
APA: What is the most challenging part about being an artist?
K-Nor: I feel the general public has a fundamental misunderstanding about the value of creative ideas, and that can make it extremely challenging to channel your work into a lucrative career.
APA: What is the best part about creating art?
K-Nor: The opportunity to communicate complex thoughts and emotions through artwork, whether successful or not can be incredibly therapeutic. Seeing a completed piece that I’ve really pushed myself on is a great feeling.
APA: What do you believe is essential in creating a powerful work of art?
K-Nor: I believe that powerful artwork effectively communicates ideas to an audience. It’s not enough to have talent or passion if you don’t know what you’re trying to express or why.
