Las Meninas II
Las Meninas (La Familia) - after Velázquez II.
Oil on canvas, W 135 x H 155 x D 2.2 cm.
I am an artist, living and working in London, before in Berlin, Amsterdam, Bangkok and Singapore. My artistic focus is on the research and development of the human mind and consciousness exploring the full human potential.
My painting is an invitation of inspiration, through silencing the mind and intellect, moving in seamless depth, untouched, through altered states of consciousness. The energy comes through in a bold and swift impasto style, which I call magical impasto, manifesting in metaphysical oil. On the most outer level my paintings are dancing between figuration and abstraction, seeking the animating roots and the spirit behind everything. Moving beyond outer content and form, painting is a shamanistic act of channeling energy, a kind of spiritual technology, giving a form to spirit in order to get to ultimate freedom. In my art I practice to let go the illusion of intellectual control and arrogance and create a spacetime where seeds can grow. I do that by following patterns of transformation and transcendence. I grab painting as a unique opportunity to evolve and move through the resistances that keep me blind and senseless of who I really am.
