ARTISTS THAT INSPIRE US - LAURA LEIVA

Thu Nov 17, 2016, 5:44 AM
:iconlauraypablo:


First of all, thank you very much for giving us the interview, we are very honored.

 

Arena PS - Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, where are you from? What do you do for a job? 

Laura Leiva - Hi, thank you very much for the interview, I feel very honored. My name is Laura, I am from Argentina, Buenos Aires, Capital Federal, I am 38 years old, art is part of me. I love art since I was born, since I was a child I was always drawing for hours, hours and hours.
I started in digital art in 2011 when I started to use PS and AE, just to design DVD menus, at first I took it as a hobby but in 2014 I became interested in photomanipulations and since then I have wanted to improve my skills and work every day In book, cd or cover designs in the future.


Fear of the Dark by lauraypablo

Arena PS - Regarding your works, can you tell us about your creative procces?

Laura Leiva - The first thing I do is look at my computer resources as png photos and backgrounds, then I choose the model and start working on her, I work on her hair, on her skin, etc. Once finished I start to try different types of background, elements , etc. I always get carried away by my feelings and let my heart flow and be reflected in my work. In short, I do what comes out of my heart.


Arena PS - What or who inspire you to create your works? Which is your favorite style?

Laura Leiva - I'm very inspired by the fantasy style, dark or emotional, I always try to convey my emotions in my manips. I am inspired by life, feelings, my sorrows, my joys, everything inspires me, a flower, the sky, the colors, the people, the love, the memories ... I also inspire many people here.


November Rain by lauraypablo

Arena PS - When you are creating Art, do you have a habit or some other curiosity?

Laura Leiva - If I am drawing I do not like anyone to look at what I do or how I do it. Before I smoked while creating, but a few months ago I stopped doing it and to be honest I miss that habit a lot. When I start to create something I like the silence and I do not like to be interrupted and / or distracted, I like to create in the night, if it is at dawn much better, the night has something that is special and that I do not know how to describe with words, For me it's magic, the night is mysterious, I like the silence on it, the night inspires me a lot!!


Arena PS - : Do you have any hobbies? What do you like to do in your free time?

Laura Leiva - I am skilled with my hands and I like to restore things whether it is furniture, a wooden box, an ornament, whatever, etc. I always restore things with my boyfriend, but only as a hobbie. For some time we have been restoring a car.
I love to draw, is something that I love and that I had stopped doing it for 15 years, but since last year I have felt the need to draw again, is a very nice feeling.


Arena PS -Which ones do you think are your main qualities and weaknesses?

Laura Leiva - I do not know if I have many qualities, but I am a person direct, honest... I always say what I think (even if people do not like, that has given me problems, but I don't care) I'm like this way, I appreciate the sincerity, honesty on people, that's really important to me. I prefer to tell me something bad to tell me a lie, I do not tolerate lies, injustice and hypocrisy. As regards my defects I get angry easily.

Falsehood... by lauraypablo

Arena PS - What do you think, plan or want for your future? And in that future, is digital art part of your plans?


Laura Leiva - For my future, I do not know, I do not like to plan things, because when I plan things come out backwards.
I wish that digital and traditional art will be part of my life forever, I could not live without art.


Arena PS - : You are recognizably a great artist, what advice or suggestions can you give artists who are just starting?

Laura Leiva - Thank you very much for the compliment, you make me blush, I believe that all the time, minute by minute one is learning, I learn something every day and try to improve my skills every day, I still need to learn many things and hope someday become a great artist. The advice I can give to those who are just beginning or want to dedicate themselves to digital art is that they try to improve every day their skills, to watch tutorials, to practice every day, to never give up.

PLP Entry - Sounds of Nature by lauraypablo

Arena PS - : Leave a message for your fans.

Laura Leiva - I do not know if I have fans haha, but I would like to thank with all my heart all those great artists here at Deviantart who always supported me, who always encourage me to continue, I would like to know and embrace each one of them, I do not know if I can ever do it , I hope so, but I want to tell all those who support me that I will always be very grateful to them.


Arena PS -And finally, among all your works, which one would you say is your favorite? Or which one means something special to you for some reason?

Laura Leiva - I know that my works are not all perfect but if I had to highlight one in particular it is one I have done for my father, called "Where are you dad?" 


Where Are You Dad? by lauraypablo


In this photomanipulation I wanted to express my pain as a daughter, I will tell you the short story:
My dad got married a month before he died with a bad woman ... a woman who did what she wanted with him ...
My dad said several times that when he died he was cremated and that's how it was, I was on his funeral, Not in his cremation, that's something I would not endure and I do not know if I'd resisted seeing.
The bad woman who married my dad said she was taken to a graveyard, but my dad is not there, not even in any other cemetery ... I don't know where is he :( (Sad)
Today, more than five years after his death, nobody knows where my father is. My pain is that I have never been able to bring him a flower, neither I, nor my brothers, nor my uncles, NOBODY.
That is something that hurts my soul ... The only thing that comforts me is to know that now it is with my mother...
