This is 5 Questions. Each week, we send five questions to an artist featured in Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Pablo Carpio.
What are you trying to communicate with your work?
What is an artist’s responsibility?
Being truthful and honest with your work.
Respect every person who takes a sincere moment to observe a work of art.
Admire the ones who allow you to talk about your dreams.
Be thankful for all the wonderful moments that you may experience in life thanks to art.
And most important of all, do not take it too seriously.

Show us the greatest thing you ever made (art or not)?
I haven’t made it yet.
Tell us about a work you want to make but never will:
To draw a line that circles the earth.
Who are three artists we should know but probably don’t?
I’m afraid that you guys probably know more artists that I should know and I don't know yet.
