An Interview With Alexander Hupke

Welcome to my artist interview series! I'm so excited to have you here, and I can't wait to learn more about your artistic journey and what inspires you. The goal of these interviews is to provide a platform for artists to share their stories and experiences, in the hopes of inspiring others to embrace their creativity and pursue their passions.

I'm curious to know what first sparked your interest in art and made you want to pursue it as a career. Was there a particular moment or experience that made you realize that art was something you wanted to pursue? 

A very good book of Vincent van Gogh.

Can you tell me about a time when something happened that completely changed the course of your artistic journey? Maybe it was something unexpected, or maybe it was a gradual realization. Either way, I'd love to hear all about it. 

At the museum I saw work of American PopArt artist Roy Lichtenstein.

As an artist, I'm sure you've faced some struggles and challenges along the way. Those experiences have probably impacted your work in some way. Can you share a bit about those challenges and how they've influenced your artistic process?  

As a beginner I was always impressed with the great artistic development that has been already archived by fellow artists.

It's often said that artists put a bit of themselves into their work. I'd love to hear about your personal connection to your art. Do you draw from personal experiences, feelings, or ideas when you create your work? How does your art reflect your own life? 

Yes some time in the past I did painting happenings of my life. I also paint persons I know. Most of my work is created during summer time when everything is defined by great light.

You've probably had some profound or meaningful experiences that have impacted the way you approach your art. Could you tell me about any experiences that have shaped the way you express yourself through art? 

Well, I cannot just draw and paint. I must be inspired. Than everything is possible.

For many artists, art isn't just a career, it's a way of life. It can be a form of self-expression, a source of joy and fulfillment, and a way to connect with others. In what ways does art impact your life beyond being a career? Can you share some examples of how it enriches your life? 

Becoming a member of several art groups of Facebook. I still feel very comfortable there and enjoy the feedback.

Feedback sometimes can be hard to take, especially when it's about something you've created with passion and hard work. How do you approach feedback and criticism about your work? Do you find it helpful, or is it sometimes difficult to hear? I'd love to know how you handle it. 

If the feedback is negative, I tell myself it's only one person's opinion, so why bother.

Pursuing an artistic career is often not an easy path. It can involve a lot of hard work and sacrifices. What kinds of sacrifices have you made to pursue your artistic dreams? I'd love to know more about the journey you've taken and the challenges you've overcome. 

To be honest, I do not pursue an artistic career at all. I'm free, totally free.

There are many stereotypes about what it's like to be an artist. Some people might think that artists have a carefree, bohemian lifestyle, or that they're always starving for money or recognition. How would you address those misconceptions and give people a more accurate understanding of what it's like to be an artist? 

Have fun with the creative work. Painting is hard work and the finished product is the reward. It's never about becoming famous with this one painting you've done. It's a great process of development.

Creative blocks can happen to anyone. If you've ever experienced a creative block, can you tell me about your experience and how you dealt with it? I'm sure other artists would love to hear about your process for overcoming creative blocks. 

Never had a block at all.

It can be hard to balance the need to create art that's true to your vision while also meeting the expectations of clients or an audience. Can you tell me about your own experience with this balancing act? How do you manage to stay authentic while also satisfying the needs of others?

It's already hard enough for me to meet my personal expectations. I never do paint for others.

Artists often have meaningful interactions with the people who view and appreciate their work. Can you tell me about any interactions that have stuck with you over the years? What impact do you hope your art has on the people who experience it? 

I gladly found out that people are pleased with my work.

There are so many young and emerging artists who are seeking guidance and inspiration. What advice would you offer to them, based on your own experiences and journey as an artist? What are the most important lessons you've learned? 

Stay calm, stay busy and work hard. Develop your art until it's unique. Success will come all by itself.

If anyone is interested in seeing your work, where can they find it? I'm sure many people would love to see more of your work!
