Instagram is not only a great platform to be inspired by food, fashion and travel. You can also get in touch with incredibly exciting people.
Imagine meeting a personality at a party that you didn't know before. What do you spontaneously talk to her about? We are starting a new series here, in which we ask the interviewees not only for three answers, but also three questions. And they usually don't know to whom their questions will be asked next.
It's Marine's turn now. Marine Tanguy managed her first gallery at age 21 and opened her first art gallery in Los Angeles at age 23. After seeing the restrictiveness of the traditional gallery model, Marine launched MTArt Agency in 2015. MTArt is the first talent agency for visual artists worldwide. Marine was awarded Forbes 2018 30 under 30 Europe: Art & Culture and UK entrepreneur of the year for the 2019 NatWest Everywoman Awards.
Marine answers Peter's questions. You can find his section below.
What drives you to do what you do?
I love to work with the most inspiring artists. It’s such a joy to see their art enhancing the life of our community, clients and partners.
What was the worst mistake you’ve ever made?
I make mistakes all the time. We innovate daily with our business so mistakes are a part of it. I would say that I am much better at handling the consequences of my own mistakes and moving forward positively.
If you knew you were going to die tomorrow morning, what would you do tonight?
Invite all my loved ones over, I would have a last dinner surrounded by art and laughter.
Marine chose to pick the same three questions that Peter sent us:
We're starting this adventure with Peter Cincotti, best known for his mega hit "Goodbye Philadelphia". 88 keys, a bench and a mic. Give those things to Peter and he can take you anywhere.
We get the impression that your Italian roots become more important to you lately. True?
Well they have always been important to me. But in recent years, I have had more and more opportunities to perform in Italy and visit many beautiful places within the country. So Italy has continued to influence me as a person and as a songwriter.
Your career started when you were still so young. How did you evolve personally and as a musician?
Music has been a part of me ever since I can remember. So how I evolve as a person goes hand and hand with how I evolve as a musician and writer. Life and music are kind of inseparable in that way, and as I learn and change as person, so does the music I make. Hence my latest album being quite different than my first album, because I am quite different now than I was at 18.
What in life are you most proud of?
I am most proud to have the family and friends that I have. Without them, little else would have been possible.
From a musical standpoint, I am most proud of being true to myself artistically and I feel lucky to have a fan base (for the most part) that supports my musical expansion and creative evolution.
I am very proud of that.
And here are Peter's questions. You're already curious who we'll ask his questions to? Come back soon and find out!
