You may have recognized him as a model/creative director/painter for various brands. We a chat with him in his “atelier” in Brussels.
Could you quickly introduce yourself?
Yo, my name is CASH. I’m a self-taught artist from Brussels. CASH is my artist name, it’s actually the acronym of my full name: Carl Anders Sven Hultin.
How did you start painting?
I started painting 7 years ago after my studies. At that time, I was sort of fed-up with what I was doing and I wanted to define my style in some way or another. That’s how I started using palette knives as a creative expression.
What’s the next challenge for CASH?
In the near future, I’d like to focus on making sculptures as well as collaborate with various companies or artists. I think this will only reinforce my visual identity.
How important is precision in your job?
Precision is everything in figurative art. It’ll have an impact on the size of the painting and the tools you’re going to use for it. For people to get a better understanding of figurative art, it’s important, as a painter, to know what you’re doing.
What do you do when you’re not creating?
I’m in a period of my life where I travel and experiment a lot. The goal is to embed all these news experiences into my art. I try to be inspired of the life I’m living and the things that I went through. I am culturally mixed so I believe there are still lots of things I need to explore. The future is bright though, and I’m happy bout that!
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I would see myself as a multidisciplinary artist. I would also like to explore new ways of doing art.
Which one is your favorite watch?
The watch that fits me best is probably the MADDIS. It suits my personality best; I like the tones and colors and also the fact that it fits whatever I decide to wear.
