Culture? introducing Denisse García..

...Today I have the honour of introducing the one and only Denisse García. Enjoy it on this fine thursday morning. Denisse is telling us some thoughts around her work today, so happy looking, and happy reading..
..Here it is, your daily shot of art with Denisse García:

-Can you tell the readers a little bit about yourself, name, what country you live in, age etc?
My name is Denisse García, and i was born in La Habana, on the small Cuba island, but I currently live in Barcelona (Spain) where I'm finishing my degree in Fine Arts.

-What inspired you to start being creative?
Since I was a child I've always been surrounded by a creative spirit in my family. My parents have always worked in television, especially my father who is a cameraman and in his spare time he also makes photography. My uncle is also a relative who has encouraged me enough to be interested in art and creation, he is a specialist in Japanese art and has always inspired my sister and I to be interested in the artistic issues.
So at the moment in my life when I had to decide which way I wanted to go I decided to study art because it was something that I had already very internalized.

-Is making art your fulltime job, and if not, what else do you do?
Now I'm still studying and also I work for the university doing other stuff, but I really I have enough free time to devote to my artwork.

-Have you gone to art school, if yes where did you go and what did you study?
As I said, I'm still pursuing a degree in Fine Arts at college and I'll finish this year, but what I know about photography I've learned it by my own.

-Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration in the everyday moments,in routine, in the light, in people behavior, in the street, also I find it in art and photography magazines,in music and people stories.I have a predilection for ambiguity, the ideal, the human being and for the spaces.

-Do you have a favorite artist and if so who and why?
Actually I dont have a favorite artist because the list would be endless.
I am very interested in all images and artworks what is being done today set out in galleries or you can find on the internet, I love contemporary art and consider myself an image hunter. I
love the photographic work of artists such as August Sander, Rineke Dijkstra or Harry Callahan, Stephen Shore and Martin Parr. love the way they portray the places and people in specific situations, and their style.

-Where can my readers see you`re work?
