Arte Divina

Our artist’s life commitment and dedication to the art are immense. It resonates passion, beauty and intensity beyond words. Centred around the concept of creation and the act of creating. Like in religious tradition the one that creates is divine and of divine intention. Strictly focusing on inspiration, symbolism, philosophy, creativity, and imagination. The double…

Fire & Fantasy

Heavy Music Artwork 6th installation: Fire & Fantasy is centred around the concept of fantasy, imagination and escapism.
