Konstantin Siegel from Daily Illustrations is our talent of the moment who cheered us up with his amazing interpretations of our latest women’s collection. We decided to interview him on his works, art and seduction.
So Konstantin, tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Konstantin Siegel. I was born in Russia but I live in Germany since 1995. I’m currently enrolled at the Fashion Design department of University of Applied Sciences in Berlin.
We loved the illustrations you did for Frankie Morello. Can I ask you your favourite work up to date?
Well, each illustration has a little bit of history attached to it so it’d be really hard for me to pick up only one.
So you basically see them as your children! That’s what almost all the artists say! But how did you decide doing fashion illustrations?
Since I study fashion design and do illustrations on a regular basis, it was kind of an easy decision. I just let my brush flow on the paper and there it was; my first illustration related to fashion. I do it almost everyday but then again I am not just a fashion illustrator, I do have some art work going on as well. I love it.
How would you define the concept ‘talent’?
What a question! It’s kind of hard to explain, I see it as an ability to see things from a different point of view, it’s not something I can really define.
What about seduction? How would you define it?
I don’t use it in a sexual context; seduction is when I paint and I lose myself in another world, I forget everything around me, it’s a feeling that takes you away from your surroundings… It’s all related to passion, I believe.
Do you believe that one can seduct with talent?
Of course! I am an artist and there’s been a lot of girls that fell in love with me, so why not? I seduced them all with my talent in art! 🙂
Would you share one of your secrets with us?
I have no secrets.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done in your life?
I have to think about it for a minute. I think it was moving to Germany with my parents. We came here with 2 suitcases in hand and a lot of hope for a better life standard. It was a very hard decision to take for us.
If seduction was a song, which one would it be?
Sweet Lady by Tyreese.
If seduction was a place, what would it be?
Seduction is everywhere where I work.
If seduction was a person, who would it be?
If it was a public transport?
Could you give us a tip on seducing a person?
Just be yourself. A little charm and humor will take care of the rest!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I am where I want to be; I just want to stay where I am, doing what I love to do, with the person I love next to me until my last day.
