“AS A CHILD I IMAGINED MYSELF AS THE COOLEST FASHION DESIGNER IN NEW YORK ON TOP OF A SKYSCRAPER, WEARING HUGE SUNGLASSES AND JUST SKETCHING”. FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE WEB ARTIST READING THE INTERVIEW.
Who is Pápay Fanny?
I’m a Budapest-based visual artist who deals with surreal elements and explores the exciting connections between objects and thoughts. Combines graphic design with photography or video.
What prompted you to open the IG account?
I’m using social media networks only to share my works, on my profile there is almost no personal contents. Sharing my works or new ideas on Instagram is important for me. Most of my current work requests are from IG. It’s a visual based platform so it’s perfect for me.
Tell us about your job.
I’m basically a graphic designer, but recently I have been working on videos for musicians. I love making visuals (album cover, video, illustrations) for music based projects because I think it’s a very exciting task to visualize something what you listen first with your ears, and then you can enjoy with your ears and eyes together, and it makes a perfect unity. To create this unity motivates me so much.
What job you wanted to do as a child?
As a child I imagined myself as the coolest fashion designer in New York on top of a skyscraper, wearing huge sunglasses and just sketching.
Where do you usually get inspiration from?
My inspirations come from little life moments. Yesterday I poured some cooking oil into the pot and it was so beautiful somehow, the bubbles and the shiny surface. I decided to make it bigger as a video or photo.
What makes you happy?
When I feel satisfied with my work, when I feel at ease with myself.
The most beautiful memory so far.
I don’t think I have one, my best memories are connected to the beach, to Adria.
A quote to define your life.
Somehow I don’t really like quotes.
Your next goal?
Right now I’m working on huge stage design for a concert hall. It’s a very very exciting job and I’m waiting for the moment to see it realized.
How would you image the perfect photo for RedMilk?
I would do a still life based on material experiments.
