Who are you?
My name is Lone Luna and I’m an abstract artist based in Aarhus, Denmark.
How did you get interested in art?
I have always been interested in art, however my true passion came a live through my studies, where I studied architect in Aarhus. We worked a lot with colors and shapes in different constellations, and from there on I was completely hooked.
How would you describe your style?
I like to play my music really loud when I work on my paintings. So the characteristic of my paintings are energy, abstract figures, different dynamics, lots of colors and with a touch of neon.
What are your sources for inspiration?
Travelling, music and people I have met inspire me in the creative process. I did as well grow up in the countryside where I had a lot of animals around me, so you can see in some of my works animal figures appear, which is certainly memories from my childhood.
How is the creation process for you and what are your favourite materials to work with?
It’s like a party. There is often a good drink or a good glass of wine present in the workshop together with lots of music. If I start out good on the canvas, I will continue painting until the work is done. When I first start, I can’t stop. I mostly work with akryl and tusch.
Who are your favourite artist?
Kathrine Bernhardt makes amazing, colorful and humorous art. Luiz Zerbini for beautiful fabrics and colors. Kasper Sonnes works for fascinating colors and combinations.
What do you do besides being an artist?
I work in a creative industry as a project manager at an advertising agency. It is a creative and dynamic environment that inspires me in my other work – painting
What are the best advice given to you as an artist?
To be yourself, no matter what. I've always gone my own ways and I is thus a self-taught artist. So I follow my heart in my work and do what makes me happy. There are no precautions or theory that define a workflow for me, and that gives a great freedom to create what suits me.
What are you most proud of in your life?
My family makes me proud. They have followed me for many years in my work with my paintings and supported me all the way. It also makes me proud and happy that people want to see and buy my works. It confirms that it's the right thing I do.
Do you have any new projects going on?
I regularly attend exhibitions at home and abroad.
