Music, painting, circus and lyrics! The diverse world of Sasha Garcia.

Sasha Garcia is a 32-year-old woman from Caracas. An artist with a diverse world of techniques and skills ranging from painting to balancing cylinders and making circus. He currently resides in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He tells us about his wonderful world of activities where you can find music, visuals and even poetry. Enjoy it!

Astrid: What artistic work have you developed throughout your life?

Sasha: (Inside the circus) Hulahoop, manipulation rings, ball roll, dissociation (manipulate several objects at once with several parts of the body).
As for the music I like to sing, I play ukulele, keyboard and a little melodica.
Painting has been something I’ve done as a hobby, but now I work painting and making balance boards.
Writing has been my therapy for several years, I like to use writing to vent, organize and internalize. I have written two songs in my life and several poems.
Photography and audiovisuals was my studio, however it was never my forte, because I had not practiced much. I put it aside for going to travel, but now I’m taking it back.
I recently learned to make crafts because the trip led me to that.
I like the beach town where I live now a lot and I had to adapt to the context. So now it’s my biggest money inflow.
I learned screen printing quite some time ago and made several designs related to the circus.
I also love illustration.

Astrid: What branch of art do you identify with the most?

Sasha: I think I like all branches, I don’t know if I could choose because traveling has led me to learn a little bit of everything. And everything has been very therapeutic and enriching.
I can’t define myself with a single discipline.

Astrid: Have you participated in events, exhibitions, forums, nationwide?
Tell us about that and what artistic work you participated with.

Sasha: I’ve mostly participated in circus events. In Venezuela and here in Brazil.

Astrid: Any techniques that you still don’t handle and want to learn?

Sasha: Tai chi.

Astrid: What social impact do you think your work as an artist can have?

Sasha: I think my biggest impact is with children, as life has led me to share with them what I have learned. Whenever I trained in squares they approached wanting to learn and I like to teach, that happened to me both in Venezuela and in all the places I have traveled, I think I have blood for the chamitos. It makes me happy to think that perhaps many of them remember me for having learned something they still like.

Astrid: What toys do you usually make a circus with?

Sasha: Hulahoop, balance board, manipulation rings, contact ball, balls (just a little).

Astrid: What project are you currently working on?

Sasha: I am currently working on my balance boards and raising money to buy audiovisual equipment and return to Venezuela so it is to visit.

Astrid: How has the adaptation process been living outside your native country?

Sasha: Brutal. Many enriching experiences that I would not have had if I had stayed in the comfort of my home, with my family. Learning and memories, people and places that mark and that are carried forever.

Astrid: When was the first time you encountered art and what technique?

Sasha: I don’t remember exactly but I do remember that since I was little my favorite task was free drawing. Where there were no rules, dictates, or established patterns. I really liked working with clay and I spent some time in artistic gymnastics

Astrid: Would you do this for the rest of your life?

Sasha: Yes, of course, but I don’t know if for money. I hope I can find some way to stop worrying about day-to-day money, and if it’s through art so much the better.

Thanks to this wonderful artist for allowing me to do this interview, for me it is always an honor.
I invite you to follow her on her social networks and know a little more about her artistic work.
