I created MINIMAN because I needed a short, strong name that is easy to remember for my Master thesis where I created an alter-ego identity construction of a rapper – since my Master thesis was about identity construction. I created the name MINIMAN in one hour. It came very quickly in a creative intuition and inspiration session. After the feedback was so positive and the music project was so successful I kept the name and used it for all my art as an alter-ego.
Hello and thank you so much for having me! I know it doesn’t sound original at all, but art has always been important to me. I have wished to become a painter since I was a kid, even though back then I didn’t feel that it could actually happen. However, I enjoyed drawing and later painting more than anything else, seizing every opportunity to practice. I would draw my teachers at school until they finally accepted my hobby and just allowed me to do that. I also loved sketching people in the underground. It was me who turned my family kitchen into one big artistic mess when my parents would leave.
