For the final Hai Society of February (we're hoping the blossom will have sprung and daffodils will have fully embraced us come our next edition!) we had a fun quick-fire chat with the painter and somewhat Instagram enigma, Miss Goffetown, a.k.a Fulvia, who took her Nelly Bag on a bike ride in the sun this week!
Hailing from Italy, Miss Goffetown resides in Milan, where a large chunk of her time is taken up with painting. Despite her slightly elusive profile, one only need look at the constant flow of colourful and (wonderfully) chaotic artworks appearing on Instagram to get a sense of Fulvia's life which appears rich with intimate moments, joyful scenes revolving around food and drink and little pockets of nature that radiate vibrancy and fresh air.
Hi Miss Goffetown....or should we say Hai!
Can you describe what you do?
I force my inspiration to trade money. Bike ride, work , bike ride, work. I paint a lot.
Where do you consider home? When do you know you are home?
If I'm in a pair of comfy shoes and a good coat.
Describe how you feel when you are on a creative Hai? (high)
I feel dazed and confused, I change fastly emotions but suddenly I'm concentrated and I disconnect from reality.
The best, untalked about place in your city?
Fine Arts Brera backyard botanical garden.
How, or where do you go to find inspiration?
I walk through the city and then I stop at park's benches or at some random cafe.
What do you do when no one is watching?
When I meet people I imitate their acts as soon as they leave.
What's the feeling fashion gives you?
Where are you going to take your Hai next?
A refined formal and sensorial fun.
