First, I always liked "street artists"; I have seen many in my life for I lived in many cities in the world, and they can always cheer me up. I realized though that it's more and more difficult for them to show their art in public, because of the increasing costly regulations that are imposed on them.
Second, during my modeling career, as I never lived on a regular pay check, I experienced some time the life of a rather "starving artist", above all in a big city like New York, where many of my friends are still struggling to make ends meet despite their incredible talent.
The good side was, as I very rarely worked every day as a male model and actor, I had a lot of time to be passionate about other things, like cooking, photography and other visual arts, and especially when combined with the internet; during many years of my life in the artsy East-Village of Manhattan, I must confide that my friends complained to me more than once that they could not get me away from my computer, for I was always working on some new creative internet dream of mine ;-) And it has been only in the past few years that, technology and web development becoming more affordable, I could finally make one of these dreams come true for myself and all of you! and that's the way Starastar was born!
Why the name of Star A Star? For it' s all about rewarding, or giving stars to new rising stars...
