Luis Tamani

I am a Peruvian artist from the Amazonian rainforest. I grew up on the banks of the Ucayali River, in Pucallpa. I always have been fascinated by the beauty of the Nature, inspired by the singing of the birds and attracted by the magic of Life. I remember all these stories told by my family about these unexpected occurences... I was always intrigued by all these things that talked about the invisible.


After finishing my studies, Life gu. I do not come from a family where they practice this medicine but, my grandma just knew about plants and their secret. She never studied anything, but she had the knowledge. That knowledge that is revealed to the wisdom hearts from secret channels. The Knowledge that is available here, right now, for each person connected to herself.​


​So I meet the Spirit of Ayahuasca. I "saw" the spirit of birds, the Light of the world and the infinite of the Universe. And I started to paint with a new opening... My creativity were liberated from boundaries. Of course, I don't mean that the use of plant is necessary to open anything... I am just talking about the only way I know, mine.

Wicho Fuentes

Born in Monterrey, N. L. Mexico,


Fully self-taught very early in his career he decides

Forget training and traditional use of materials for

To be able to establish a more natural way to print your experiences in a more visceral way and without established parameters, giving his works a sense of creativity. His work is full of feelings that we have normally forgotten, or do not want to face because of our new beliefs.


Using and mixing traditional materials with unconventional materials without a defined technique but with a strength that develops only from pure creativita, working normally with more than 5 blankets at the same time giving the same time and passion to their creations, in this way each piece is unique but establishes an organic connection between the different pieces, and a more unconscious sense to the finished product.


His painting is passion and manages not to lose that magic, the magic of not ceasing to be a child, his work gives the viewer the opportunity to reconnect with the purest feelings, giving us the possibility to shake the routine of ordinary perception, to contemplate the outer and inner world, not as perceived by the obsessed by words and concepts but as the free mind learns.

Gerardo Orozco Astigarraga

I am a messenger and my way of expression is sculpture.


When I was born, they named me Gerardo as my grandfather, which means brave lancer or strong warrior.


So I went, until I discovered that the warrior attracts war, and I prepared to focus all my energy and intention on love, to create and support beautiful actions and to decree with absolute confidence the healing of humanity and the planet earth.


I am part of the Huitzilin Kanan (Guardian Colibri) community. Huitzilines are small dragons that fly the message from ear to ear, spreading it to all mankind. Kanan however is the guardian who is rooted in the temple, obtaining a complete community of messengers and guardians.


Gerardo contains the letters d-r-a-g-o. The dragon is the channel for energy to flow. Before I was a warrior dragon, now I am a loving dragon.


I decree my dreams through sculptural projects to establish harmony on planet earth, uniting and healing mankind, loving enemies and respecting and honoring nature.


I am originally from the Basque culture in northern Spain. I studied in a small School of Art and I went to the University of the Traveler, knowing different natures, cultures and techniques.


I spent the last 15 years in Mexico, participating in permarquitectura, plastic arts and sustainability projects. Lately I work at festivals spreading the message to everyone because of their interculturality. This decree was in the Own Spirit in Spain in 2019.

 

I call it "Unity", it is the union between humanity and nature. A large female human body of earth represents the personification (Mari) of Mother Earth (Amalur in Basque mythology).


This became an interactive space.The public took mud baths becoming sculpture (madretierra), and adorned the work with creativity and beautiful intentions.


At the end of the human meeting, we deliver the figurative work to the earth by sowing tree seeds in a beautiful ceremony, leaving it to the natural one with the dream of establishing a small forest there.

 VISUAL ARTIST + PERFORMER + EDUCATOR 


Being a passionate explorer, artist and observer I continue along my path reflecting visions and emotions through various projects as I go. As an educator, I aim to enable connections to inner energies, the cultivation of skills and the exchange of ideas to provoke truer expressions of self from my learners.
