Welcome, I am Epiphanio. I help inspire people to pause and tune-in to their inner guidance. I paint, I write, I play…
I paint portals. I like to think they’re some kind of metaphysical transfer of information but that’s up for you to decide.
It’s all about using the hands… and it can be anything, but it has to be made by hand —this is the magic healing potion for the troubled mind & the broken heart. It’s also How Creativity Saved My Life in 2014.
In 2014, this breakthrough realization led me to dedicate some serious time to painting as meditation —as practice for mindfulness and presence.
I decided to get serious about painting because I needed to grow, I was stagnant. I needed to learn new things, experience new things: things that words can’t teach. And soon after, I realized that I was painting doors or windows …Portals, if you will.
And now it’s expanding: “Art As Vehicle For Designing Sustainable Communication” isn’t a far off description to where I see this going.
For me, it’s not about the finished piece but about the journey —aside from maybe an idea of which colors to use or what technique (you can’t put everything into one piece), I dive into my work like an explorer in a foreign land and allow it to show me what it wants to be.
My Work is teaching me about intuition: about how to listen and feel, perceive beyond the constraints of intellect and logic; it’s teaching me how to use a different type of compass in my life.
