Who Am I ?

MIKY FABREGA

January 2012

1: Who am I?

I am a person in love with life and its possibilities

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

I am an artist, writer, creative director, and socially-aware business man. I divide my time and brain between art, my strategy, an idea consulting firm called NEO!, my think-tank art space called Diablo Rosso, and many other related projects. My bigger projects for 2012 are the opening of the Diablo Rosso Hotel and solo shows in Lebanon, L.A., and New York–if I don’t implode.

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

I am from Panama in Central America and I plan to go as far as I physically and mentally can .

4: Who is your biggest hero?

Many people inspire me, but it’s hard to say that somebody is my hero. My dad is pretty cool.

5: What book is your bible?

Yikes. So many books! To pick one would be unfair. The Fountainhead changed my life early on.  It might sound cheesy but The Power of Now also had a huge impact.

6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?

I love the smell of my girlfriend’s neck. I love analogue synthesizers and my electric pencil sharpener. Hate is a big word. I don’t really hate anything.  I dislike inequality, stupidity, and arrogance. Oh, I do hate a pencil sharpner that doesn’t work.

7: What is your raison d’être?

To create a better future through ideas.

8: What is your favorite color?

I will always be a fan of red in all of its forms.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

Kaliman.

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

Joe Shanghai’s in Chinatown serves the best drama in town.

11: What turns you on?

A secret button.

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

Who would you love to have as a mentor?
