What would your response be if I said that the only natural talent that an artist has is the desire to create. Everything else outside that is a skill they've learnt. Hi! My name is Walo. And I have that desire.

 

I have learnt how to channel this desire into different creative outlets and dived myself into various disciplines, like design or photography or even performance, some would say I'm greedy but I see it as curiosity.
 

This is why I see myself as just another tool of the design process, mostly in my commisioned work, where the clients opinion is at stake. In a way, I see my position as a professional creative like a sort of mediator between what is wanted to be done, and what has to be done.

 

Communication and storytelling are the key aspects of my personal work, and I deliver this through polished and clean pieces of work, where every detail serves a purpose. I connect with my creativity through experience, using this as a catalyst to bring out the imagery that I produce. Not only I question my own experiences but also its relationship with my <<self>>, enabling me to have a conversation with myself and the world as well as connecting with and healing my emotions.
