SPIRITUAL PORTRAITS

Many people concerned with art and spirituality have already commissioned a spiritual portrait of themselves, of a loved one, of a pet and even of their home

In the history of art and of humanity, spirituality is manifested through the sacred. At all times and in all places, humans, in search of meaning, peace and love have used art to rise up and free themselves

A spiritual portrait is also an interior landscape, a search for beauty. It reveals the energies and vibrations you are made of, as well as your wounds and scars

Artist statement

In existential questioning since his early childhood, Poggio Di Poggio first experienced beauty and the sacred through nature, drawing and painting. At the age of 40, not having found inner peace, he felt called. He went to study and practice Zen and Theravada Buddhism in Europe and then in Asia, especially in Thailand where he became a begging forest monk like the Buddha
After 8 years of monastic life he felt called back to ordinary life and returned to Europe in order to express the spiritual nature of life through art. He is represented among others by The Artling Gallery (Singapore), he currently lives and works in Belgium
