“Shiva in my dream”

I was attending an overcrowded event in one of those strange and surrealist dreams. The confusion and curiosity were overwhelming, people in the crowd invited me to participate, and I asked who we were waiting for. A woman pointed to a poster, and I saw the figure of a person with blue skin and four arms – she said – It is a ‘Uchiba’ concert (that’s how I interpret it), and then I woke up. I thought it was an interesting dream and decided to write this last line down in the middle of the night. The next day I googled the name, and Google suggested a different one… God Shiva and I found this Big surprise. 🙏🕉

“The Kiss After The Pandemic”

“The Kiss After the Pandemic” by Savaq, a 20 x 24 inch acrylic on canvas, created on April 5, 2020, tells a powerful story about the current state of the world. In a time when the most powerful nations on earth have an abundance of weapons and ammunition, they are unable to supply their healthcare professionals with the necessary protective gear. The painting highlights the irony that in today’s world, the work of everyday heroes such as nurses, scientists, farmers, public transport drivers, garbage collectors, and cashiers is more important than that of stockbrokers on Wall Street.

As we navigate these unprecedented times, it has become increasingly clear that the best health insurance cannot guarantee one’s survival. Even stimulus checks fail to offer solace in a world plagued by uncertainty. Our expensive armed forces are rendered useless in the face of an invisible enemy that cannot be defeated by bullets or bombs. Armored tanks provide no protection against a pandemic, for the enemy is not visible to the naked eye.

The painting urges us to see beyond the surface and recognize the importance of a solid healthcare system, even above a strong economy. It is imperative that we come together in solidarity, leaving behind our individualism, arrogance, and selfishness. We must work towards a common goal, where “my country first” is replaced by a universal understanding that we are all in this together. Through cooperation and shared efforts, we can overcome the pandemic and emerge stronger, more united as a society.

“The Scholar’s Heart 🦅❤”

I don’t know if one day we will understand the connection between dreams and reality, or who knows, maybe reality is just another dream in a dream. I remember my dreams very clearly every morning, and I usually give them a little analysis just for entertainment. 

This painting is about a dream I had with a crow, those dreams that only make sense in our subconscious. Well, it turns out that the morning after having the dream, I found a poor dead crow right next to the old tree in front of my house. I recognized the blackbird because he/she always came to disturb the squirrels that inhabit the area.

I don’t believe in superstitions, nor do I try to connect the bird with my dream. It’s just strange. Since I could recognize the poor blackbird, I decided to bury it next to the tree. I did a little research about these creatures, and some people believe they symbolize change and transformation. But much more than that, it refers more to a spiritual or emotional change. These intelligent birds give us valuable insight into situations around us and help us adapt as needed.

“Tell him yes. Even if you are dying of fear, even if you are sorry later, because whatever you do, you will be sorry all the rest of your life if you say no.”

“Progressive art can assist people to learn not only about the objective forces at work in the society in which they live, but also about the intensely social character of their interior lives. Ultimately, it can propel people toward social emancipation”. -Salvador Dalí.

“Lennon & The Catcher in The Rye”

My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.”
~ John Lennon.

“On our small planet, at this moment, here we face a critical branch point in history. What we do with our world right now will propagate down through the centuries and powerfully effect the destiny of our descendants. It is well within our power to destroy our civilization and perhaps our species as well. If we capitulate to superstition or greed or stupidity, we can plunge our world into darkness deeper than the time between the collapse of classical civilization and the Italian Renaissance. But we are also capable of using our compassion and our intelligence, our technology and our wealth, to make an abundant and meaningful life for every inhabitant of this planet; to enhance enormously our understanding of the universe and to carry us to the stars.”
– Carl Sagan’s Message to Humanity.

“Flamenco en Granada”

“A fiery flamenco dancer ignites the stage in Granada, their passion a mirror to the city’s soul. A glass of wine, raised in salute, to the memory of a night that still dances in my heart. I captured the essence in fleeting moments, captured with my lens. And back at home, I breathed life into the colors, bringing the scene to vivid existence with each brushstroke.”

“Mind in the Waters.”

Consciousness is a mystery, and mystery is something that people don’t yet know how to think about. Our brain and its complexity create a multi-universe difficult to understand. Philosophers, psychologists, and scientists are still trying to learn and discover this “Collective Unconscious” and “Unified Field’, that give us the potential to create, perceive, enjoy sunsets, write melodies and poetry. This energy connects us with the core of our being and the universe.

“St. Petelican”

Living in this beautiful bay for so many years that I can offer a tour guide to native people 😆

I have seen museums changing locations, bars, and restaurants open and closing doors, an old pier that no longer exists today, and silent streets with retired people, to a central avenue crowded with four unique generations interacting simultaneously.

I dedicate this painting to the beautiful city of St. Petersburg, which always makes you feel very welcome. Let me introduce you to St. Petelican. This little guy’s eyes asked me for a name!
