Painting portraits is not only about likeness.




I see everyone wants you be able to identify himself with the image portrayed on a canvas.



But honestly, would you really say that the real you, your voice, your truth, can be found just in a hair cut, or a certain color of lipstick?


I strongly believe that our physical appearance is the complement to our soul. Our physical dimension is a side of our wholeness, a tangible manifestation of our emotions when we dress up, or we comb our hair so that we FEEL it coherent with our inner side. Otherwise it may be awkward, weird, ridiculous. And I bet you don’t want to be your own caricature.



The real challenge in portraiture is painting the soul.



And the soul often speaks the language of vulnerability. Vulnerability means digging into past experiences, memories. Going through them in a healing process, which is not only healing, but growing, expanding in this chaotic universe.

In a few words, we can hear our voice and finally see our inner reality.


Now imagine you are walking through a physical gallery. Your eyes will be filled from colours, suggestions, memories arising from the portraits.
