An Interview with Havoc Hendricks
APA: What do you want people to obtain when they look at your work?
Havoc: I hope that people will allow themselves to notice the intricate detail & get lost in it. Similar to cloud watching or staring at moving water, it's a mesmerizing practice that can almost be transcendental at times.
APA: What is some advice you would give to aspiring artists?
Not all art mediums are created equal; even if you aren't that great at a lot of them doesn't mean that you won't be a genius at one you haven't tried yet.
APA: What do you do to keep going when you are not motivated or inspired to create?
I simply force myself to keep going. It's incredibly valuable to create even if it's bad art because the bad art will eventually lead to good art.
APA: What most often inspires your work?
I am moved by a couple key ingredients found throughout all design platforms: Simplicity, Elegance, Subtle Detail, Minimalism, Sophistication, & Timeless incorporation of color fades & geometry.
APA: What is the best part about creating art?
I think most people would agree that there's a deep satisfaction that accompanies bringing something into this world that did not exist before & never would exist if it weren't for you- especially if it's so good that it changes peoples lives for the better.
APA: What do you wish you knew about the art business before you got started?
APA: What do you believe is essential in creating a powerful work of art?
Skill plus Creative Inventiveness. A lot of artists have the skill but lack creativity while a lot of other artists are wildly creative but lack the skill to execute their ideas.
APA: It’s a random day 10 years ago, what were you creating?
10 years ago I was creating my very first minimal painting. It was laughably bad but I didn't know that; in fact, I thought it was a masterpiece. This false awareness motivated me to paint again & again until after years of practice I finally achieved a level of skill that strangers started to notice & desire. I believe that if you do something a thousands times you'll become a professional even if by accident.
