I love visual art and multimedia, I’m mexican and I study at UPV (Universidad Politecnica de Valencia) at this moment a master dregree in Visual Arts and Interactive Multimedia.
Most of the thing I learn was not learned in class.
if I have to give u an advice:
Learn about what you want, use all you can, books, school, videos, etc. and at the end you will became awesome.
I speak italian, english, a bit of russian (still learning) and spanish.
