"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"You grow up with this idealistic idea of wanting to change the world, realizing later on that artworks that look too much like propaganda scare people and people just become defensive. So I realized that the strategy would have to change."
