An Interview With Parisa Azad
APA: What is the root/birth/foundation of your creativity… how did you get started?
Parisa: I would say that my root foundation of my creativity would be self-love. I got started because my medium for self expression is drawing or painting, so I looked deep within myself, and envisioned what the feelings I had at the moment looked like.
APA: Who do you admire artistically?
Parisa: Artistically I admire Alex Grey and Android Jones.
APA: What legacy do you want to leave?
Parisa: I want to leave a legacy of creating a colorful planet with art and incorporate sacred geometry.
APA: What do you want people to obtain when they look at your work?
Parisa: I want people to be drawn to the sacred geometry patterns and have the color combination trigger a positive feeling.
APA: What do you think your purpose is?
Parisa: My purpose is to show the world sacred geometry and color to remind them that the world is much bigger than imagined and more than materialist living.
APA: What advice would you give to other inspiring artists?
Parisa: The best advice I would give is to an inspiring artists would be to just get in the zone. Get up close and personal with your art. Don't be afraid of making mistakes, because the mistakes are what make you learn faster. And don't worry about what other people think.
APA: In the next decade what do you wish to accomplish with your creative gifts?
Parisa: I wish to open minds to a new way of thinking.
APA: What is one mistake every artist should avoid?
Parisa: Main mistake is letting peoples opinions matter. One other mistake would be to not rest when your creative mind is at its max. Another mistake would be to let your ‘out of nowhere’ ideas disappear. Jot down the idea or do a quick sketch of ir before it leaves your mind.
APA: What do you do to keep going when you are not motivated or inspired to create?
Parisa: I remember my purpose. I remember why I am doing this. The less work I do, the less the world sees it. If my mind needs rest, I give it rest.
APA: If you could hang out with one artist, living or dead, who would that be?
Parisa: I would hang out with Salvador Dali because I feel like he would be the only one that could truly describe the meaning of his art.
