"Painting is my motivation."
Would you like to tell us a few sentences about yourself by way of introduction? What is your name? Where are you from and what do you do?
My name is Anne Lilly, I was born in Düsseldorf, completed my training as a painter and varnisher and then became a master painter. I have now been a self-employed master painter for seven years.
How does your work for "out there" differ from the work you do for galleries and other indoor spaces?
Out there, I try to paint the images to fit the immediately adjacent environment. On canvas, paintings just flow from my hand. Independent of surroundings and other influences that resonate outside.
What motivates you to create art in urban space and to exhibit your works in public space?
Place and environment are not important for me - painting alone is the motivation.
Many artists work with a pseudonym instead of their birth name. What does your chosen name mean to you?
My pseudonym as an artist is actually my middle name.
Where do you get your inspiration?
From the animal world.
Are there any other places in Düsseldorf that you should definitely visit?
Under the Jülicher Brücke, in the area where you park, I painted a very nice picture with friends at the "40 Grad Festival". And the facade on Oberbilker Allee at the Pitcher, which was designed by a good friend and me.
Thank you for taking the time!
