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.

Education

BA, Illustration and Fine Art at Swansea’s Institute of Higher Education, University of Wales - UK

Note: I did not learn how to paint in college since representational art and traditional skills were frowned upon by art teachers at the time.

I didn't feel like throwing paint in a canvas to "express my emotions", nor felt like creating useless contraptions to be displayed as "art " in an installation. Hence why I studied traditional illustration instead.

So when it comes to painting skills, I am self taught.
