Carpazine: How did you initially become interested in art?
Doug: When I was a child my father wrote all of the time at home. I was trying to draw something to show to him. But, everything began when I scribbled on his martial arts books. This was my first step in art. After this episode, the drawing grew in my life like a big virus. A big addiction.
Carpazine: What media do you prefer?
Doug: I like traditional media, as analogical as possible. Paper and pencil or sketchbooks are my favorite tools in the world. But, now I am learning about printmaking: another amazing classical media.
Carpazine: Did you go to art school and if so, where?
Doug: Yes! I went to UnB (University of Brasília). I studied in the department of art. A place where they have people with amazing works. It is so cool, when the movement has the strength to walk alone!
Carpazine: What is your theme and why is it important to you?
Doug: My theme is the grotesque. My art is about my life: my fears and failures and pain. I try put in my drawing everything which touches my life or my memories. I put my body and image of a victim inside of my drawings.
Carpazine: What is your favorite music?
Doug: I like so much of Rock 'n' Roll, my favorite bands are Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Kadavar, Ramones, The Doors, Ufomammut, and others.
Carpazine: Is there a town or place in the world you consider inspiring?
Doug: The place is the Ceilândia neighborhood in which I grew up. Many stranger things happening there, this is the inspiration for my work.
Carpazine: Anything you would like to add?
Doug: Drawings, Drugs, and Destruction- this is the formula of life.
