Meet Noah Charney
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Ars Ardor Forma Amor
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Painting and drawing as brilliantly as the artists I admire
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. Efficiency, confidence, and relentless optimism
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
A. I have no patience for details--I want to grab the big ideas by the throat, and then I'll rush passed the "I' dotting and "T" crossing
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Wandering through Rome, alternating visits to favorite masterpieces in Roman churches with visits to favorite caffes, in a sort of "cappuccino and Caravaggio crawl." I take a perhaps unholy degree of pleasure in visiting churches to look at the art inside, and the only thing that could be better than that is eating great food and drinking great coffee between visits.
