"No matter what you do in your life and at work, you should always do the best and most beautiful things you can. Most will say that you do not have to be so meticulous or need to do as much as you do -just the minimum. Well, I think that any task you accomplish should be as aesthetic as possible beauty cannot hurt, but remember that doing somethin"



Maximin Lida over the years has been inspired by great American, French, German, and many other visionary Artists including painters with the sophistication and finesse of VERMEER, the skill of VICTOR VASARELY, MAX ERNST, the innovation, artistry and creativity of SALVADOR DALI, GIORGIO DE CHIRICO, J.Y. TREMOIS, JEAN COCTEAU, MIRÓ; photographers such as PETE STONE, PATRICK DEMARCHELIER, LOUISE DAHL WOLFE, MICHAEL BABIN, DAVID LACHAPELLE, HELMUT NEWTON, PAMELA HANSON; and the words of writers like OSCAR WILDE, who wrote: “the spirit creates, not blind imagination”. I have adopted the maxims of creative Architect FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT because I believe Architecture is in close parallel to art by virtue of being a necessity as well as a luxury, an Art, and a science. Other great artists today in Architecture and Design like ZAHA HADID, TADAO ANDO, MICHAEL GRAVES, or PHILIPPE STARCK have been able to create products or designs not only of high quality with an appropriate look at our Century, but with simplicity and functionality as well. The philosophy about Art in general is to be better than good but rather trying to be great in all. I also credit other artists, philosophers, filmmakers, actors, and writers for their general influence in my life such as W.A. MOZART, MANUEL DE FALLA, PINK FLOYD, JAMES BLUNT, CELIA CRUZ, AUGUST RODIN, CAMILLE CLAUDEL, FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA, CHARLES BEAUDELAIRE, PIERRE BOURDIEU, DANTE ALIGHERI, FRANZ KAFKA, J.J. ROUSSEAU, J.P. SARTRE, ANDRE GIDE, MAN RAY, GINO SEVERINI, DOS PASSOS, U2 -BONO, JUANES, PEDRO ALMODÓVAR, MORGAN FREEMAN, ROBERT REDFORD, and so many other ordinary people who make a difference one way or another. Creating the right piece of art today, unfortunately, does not depend on how talented you are but on who you know. I strongly believe that honesty, knowledge, and the passion for Art still have a place in the world today. MHD .59 approaches to the philosophy of art, inspired by a clean, honest appearance of the creation, eliminating overkill and nonessential stupidity, giving priority to the main purpose or object, freshness, texture and reflection. Not to be suffocated with a grandiose influence of commercial and financial purpose of mass production. That is, what we believe is necessary to the Art and to be in “sync” with the current period, or better, in advance to the actual period.
