First of all, why don't you introduce yourself to those of us who don't already know you?

 

My name is Bobby and I am the monster behind Perfect T.I.M.E inc.

 

In a few words or phrases, how would you describe your art to someone who has never seen any of your stuff?

 

I would describe it as a story, each piece or project that Iíve worked on has a story/ point/ meaning nothing is really random. Most of the projects I feel could be ads for companies like the Ilí Bullshift for Lamborghini or the Hopefull project for Nike.

 

Some of your favourite techniques when creating art?

 

The weird thing about the art I am involved in is that I am merely the art director, Iíve worked with many artists raging from sculptors to acrylic painters, singers, actors , pretty much every type of artist under the ďartĒ umbrella.

 

How did you become an artist in the first place, and did you receive any kind of formal education on the subject? And what can you tell us about your artistic evolution?

 

Well I would always have these daydreams about how things should be or how I would do them if I had the opportunity which led me to start on mini projects, a couple friends of mine encouraged me to produce a solo show and so I did. Iím not to sure how to answer about my artistic evolution, I feel that I havenít evolved into that next stage yet. Iíve learned a lot - mostly that it isnít easy to make in any industry for that matter but if it were easy everyone would be doing it. I still work on my commercial concepts but I have also begun script writing I should be finished with my first one this quarter.

 

Do you still remember the first art show you headlined, and what kind of a feeling was that?

 

The first art show was cool really cool. Everyone was engaged in everything. I was a little nervous as to what people thought, most of my friends didnít know I was into art. So after the first waves of reactions were all great and the art was well received, things moved smoothly but in slow motion. It was like being at a 70ís party, I was on a natural high.

 

You do art for art's sake as well as commercial art - where are the similarities and differences, and which do you find more inspiring, more satisfying, more whatever else?

 

I think one of the differences between my concepts and most other artists is that the projects/artwork  just for art's sake are somewhat commercial. I feel like I find lines between two things something non commercial no mainstream and look at it in a totally different view, giving it symbolism, and then use that to define something or explain. For example I had this project called the dopplegangers - and I had several characters that had nothing to do with each but I found symmetry - like Angry Gorb which involves Mikhail Gorbachev and Anthony Mason.

 

You often include references to films, comicbooks, pop culture, even advertisments in your art. Would you like to elaborate on that?

 

Iím not going to fully explain Perfect T.I.M.E inc, but it is a recollection of things Iíve seen throughout my life and I use these memories to make points or definitions or analogies. Furthermore I remember almost every TV show, commercial cartoon and movie that I have ever seen, so most of the art is a mashup of things that make sense in my head.

 

Some of your favourite creations?

 

All of my creations I love but some of my favorites are the Miami Monstars graphic, and the Against All Odds painting.

 

Any future projects of whatever kind you'd like to talk about?

 

I am working on a script, which should be finished shortly as well as a project involving Nike boxes, I donít want to divulge but stay tuned for that.

 

Basically, where do the inspirations for your artworks come from?

 

The inspiration pretty much comes from advertising and pop culture, I think things that are relatable are comforting the audience will ďagreeĒ with what they are seeing or hearing if they are for familiar with it, they will be more inclined to like it.

 

Artists who inspire you?

 

I am a big fan of Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Kaws.

 

... and since this is first and foremost a movie site, your favourite and least favourite movies?

 

My favorite moviesÖ I love The Matrix, I am a big fan of mythology and there is so much in the movie that relate to life - the meaning of life -, God, why we are here, why things are the way they are. I love Mission Impossible I, Gone in 60 Seconds, I have a lot Iím a big movie watcher, Batman I, Days of Thunder, Risky Business, A Few Good Men, The Bruce Lee Story.

 

Your website, Facebook, whatever else?

 

I have a site, Perfecttimeinc.com, and my Twitter @bobbyzoom.

 

Thanks for the interview!
