How did you get into debt?

How does your economic reality effect your art?
You have to do something else(work) that you don't want to get by. I would only do art to get by instead. and I would not be just to get by it would be just art. That is it. Also, the theme. It brings you closer to some economic material reality. Whereas I would be thinking on the non material art that I make. The emotions of my paintings are non material.

Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
Yes! Of course. I would be a 100% devoted to art and not to get some money just because we need to work. I Would have my owns studio by now. I would also devote more time. And that is the key difference.
