What I do in art is a form of creative healing and it is a work with strong spiritual connotations.
The methods have changed over time, but the main purpose has always been to clear away the pain and to regenerate from trauma, with the intention of supporting and inspiring others to do the same.
An intense aspiration to awaken spiritually has always been there too but, until recently, only in a raw and rather undisciplined way- despite it being genuine and profound and demanding a lot of effort.

Especially in my early works, the need for self exploration and self fulfillment has taken much of my efforts, and my outlook has been strongly influenced and stimulated by a period of Jungian therapy and by other methods based on psychic intuition.
Also when dealing with difficult content, playful and joyous resources have always come out of me. An overwhelming feeling of love for life and a lot of strong clear energy have made it possible for me to cope with consistent challenges somehow for several years.
With experience and maturity, the initial self centered and narcissistic obsessions have progressively left space to a consistent and honest search for self transcendence. A very profound relationship with nature and the environment has established a new foundation for my actions, setting new priorities also in art.
This developed into a truly deep shamanic call and I grounded my vision and roots into earth and cosmos.

Eventually, the problems underlying my existence have become way too powerful and none of the skills developed so far could really resolve the core of the issue. 
I experienced than a period of severe sickness, during which I could not paint anymore (nor do anything at all).
I made the best out of this troubled time by discovering and applying the Buddhist teachings.

After a period of solitary practice, amazed by the results and by the outstanding quality of Dharma wisdom and method, I resolved to dedicate my creative efforts entirely in the direction of liberation, as intended in Mahayana Buddhism. 

In terms of my artistic production the year 2023 can be considered the time reference for this change of orientation, but some of the paintings from previous years reveal a movement in the same direction. 
As a viewer you should know (and probably can notice on your own) that I keep acting in very original ways and my being a Buddhist happens really very deeply and thoroughly, but on a rather stray level for the moment, since I don't have neither a teacher, nor a sangha of reference yet, due to my current life situation and remote location.

I keep developing a healing method without discarding valuable resources gathered from before, just keeping the best of it and realigning it all with the correct view and purpose, to the best of my knowledge and degree of realization. This is a way for me to take care of my health condition while being on the path, preparing for the time and circumstances that will allow me to find personal guidance.

My aspiration as an artist is to eventually be able to reconcile these artistic, creative and healing activities with the Dharma practice as a whole, but being a practitioner is of much greater importance to me.
