Shanti's Circus

"We accept her! We accept her! One of us! One of us! Gooble gobble, gooble gobble! One of us! One of us!"… so sang Tod Browning's freaks and when I saw his movie for the first time, 22 years ago, I felt part of them right away. I'm an illustrator, a singer and a multiple person, multiple indeed because inside of me coexhist a lot of different personalities – and one of them is the Divina. I love eveything that feels like a stab at my heart, I love everything that disturbs and unsettles concealing a kind of poetry that I feel close to me, akin to what I am. My illustrations are part of me, my freaks and my whores, my pimpled-faced kids, they're all my children, and each and every one of them has a story to tell – they're different and unique but not bad because of their difference or, yes, sometimes even bad but only because they're forced to be bad. That's me: a transfixed heart, more or less sacred, more or less bleeding.
