Cecilio wants to have in the catalog my statements and I've been reading my own interviews and texts trying to find the best slogans.
They always ask me about the pop art but I think that's something historic. My art is turbo pop.
In a perfect world there would be no need for art.
My art is about cleaning the house and ethnic cleansing.
I do drawings, but cannot draw. I do paintings, but cannot paint. I do other things, too, but cannot do that either. It is a tragedy, but tragedies are appreciated in Arts.
Good art is irreverent, excessive, controversial, incorrect, irritating, bad behaving, ironic, funny, and beautiful.
I agree with Picasso's that "the art is not made to decorate rooms. It is an offensive weapon in the defense against the enemy". My enemies are everywhere, I shoot to all the directions and bite the hands that feed me.
I like things I don't understand.
I always disagree. I’m always wrong.

I'm working on the catalog that will be published in the occasion of my solo show Escribid a Papá Noel y pedid Libertad (Write to Santa and Ask fro Freedom) at Gacma in Malaga. I have thousands of ideas and I change my mind several times a day about both the concept and the detail of the publication. I don't now how Ana, the designer, and Cecilio, the editor, can still seem to be so positive and relaxed.
First, I said that I didn't want a traditional biography but then I thought that it's better to make my gallerist happy and do some conventional things. Now I decided to add a profile. I love profiles of Pokémons (figthting abilities and weapons) and prostitutes (breast size and price). Then I was reading Xiaolu Guo's 20 Fragments of a Ravenous Youth which begins with Fenfang's profile for Beijing Film Studios - Extra Registration Form. (I read now only Chinese literature and when I moved to Spain I earned my living doing extras in films.) My profile is a mix between a film extra, prostitute and an anime character.
