Dallas-based artist Giovanni Valderas answers the question Why are you an artist? as part of an overall 18-part video series on artists in the DFW and Houston regions. The series is a collaboration between Glasstire and Texas-based Walley Films.
The series, 3×3: Artist Q+A follows six visual artists who were each asked the same three questions. Featured DFW artists include Ciara Elle Bryant, Giovanni Valderas, and Shelby David Meier. A new video will be released on Glasstire every Wednesday in March and April.

“If I can use art to bring a different perspective that can change people’s minds, or at least get them to acknowledge an issue, I think my role as an artist is a viable one.”
