An Small Interview with The Big Bad Gorilla.
Who and from where are you?
My name is Riad, Aka, The Big Bad Gorilla. I live and love in Toronto. Always.
How you got into this?
Born into it. My father was an artist. A skilled draftsman. I guess you can say it was always in my blood. My earliest memory was drawing large murals on my bedroom wall.
What is your driving force?
Being alive. I'm grateful for my minuscule time on this planet and try my best to be a bit better than I was the night before.
What kind of work you do and why?
Primarily charcoal and watercolor (plein air). Watercolour is unpredictable, unrelenting and uncompromising. It's a daily challenge and often a struggle. But it's one that I accept. Charcoal I adore because of the myriad ways to manipulate it.
