The Art of Nagualero

where thoughts become paintings

Painting is one of the best ways I have found to express myself
and to explore the world within and around us.

Influenced by observations and thoughts as well as words of great people,
I create Inspirational Paintings...

Images that will enrich my life by provoking questions & self reflection,
in other words, Art that aims to elevate the Spirit,
Paintings that make me and hopefully others Think…

By using simple deserted landscapes
combined with dramatic skies to set a tone or mood,
the Artwork delivers a symbolic message...

A message that embodies and symbolizes
a particular human value, a feeling or Spirit;
to enhance, illuminate and to better understand...
What is Best or Worse in Them.

outdoor work

For me painting in plein air ( outdoors ) is an opportunity to hang out with the best teacher of all.

Nature.

I also get to practice my other passion, which is to spend time in the woods and live in harmony with nature. That is what we call Bushcraft.

When I was a kid, while living in Brazil, I would disappear into the bush for days on end on summer holidays. My father encouraged me to do so and I loved and respected him for allowing me to do it. I have always been deeply in awe of the outdoors and there is nothing I enjoy more, than to spend nights on a row just hanging out and painting in the wilderness. I feel at home in it. Always have.

I believe that by observing and painting the natural world around me, I will gain a deeper connection and understanding of it, making me a better painter and bushcrafter. In my opinion that further enriches my studio work and life.

I also enjoy the fact that there is less navel gazing in this form of art making. Its pure, direct and simple. I like that about it.
