-Do you have a favorite artist and if so who and why?I like many artists, including Basquiat classic, Kupka, Bacon .. But the truth is I feel much more identified with the artists of today, are much closer to my concerns aboutits historical context and have similar concerns to mine in how contemporary they are ..Some of them are Conrad Roset, Irene Bou, Andrew Hem, Jennifer Davis, EdwardKinsella, ... the list could be endless nowadays there are very talented.
