"I think it is necessary for everyone to connect with art from an early age and to continue enriching this connection in their adulthood. Art can teach us how to deal with emotions, and how to express negative or positive feelings in a proactive way, that is why I think everyone should be allowed and motivated to create. If we learn to create we will most likely stop destroying"
