Viktor Mazhlakov is known for his work with snowmen. Viktor first started drawing when he was only 43 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the insane pressure of being a child prodigy gleefully got to him and he had a remarkable breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own nose! Viktor found honoured inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his bathroom for all the cats to see! Viktor eventually got married to Kate Moss and they remain together hungrily in Versailles with their 965 children. Viktor would like to thank Frodo Baggins, Matisse and Vince Vaughn for their constant support and inspiration.
What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Тhere is no easy nor difficult part, painting for me is a process that just happens.
Where and how do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration everywhere and at any time, just try to observe things around me.
What do you feel is the significance of online communities, such as deviantART, to aspiring artists?
The communities are something great, they give much greater scope for expression of the artists than the traditional modes of expression. I´m glad that I live in such a time!
What is the weirdest, strangest or funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
А woman told me recently of one my painting that is really scary!?! ;)
What advice can you offer to other artists?
