Paintings inspired by the Mayan landscape and culture in Guatemala.
Painting is not an occasional hobby – it’s a fundamental activity, it’s a vision quest. Each painting tells a story: of connectivity to the source. When I paint I lose time and start to access the many dimensions of nature. Atoms, cells, planets, sun, love, light, the universally alchemical, flow through the brush.
Creativity is born out of the flow of the moment, and the awakening into the moment is all there is. This awareness is a full sun of being and the artworks that flow out from that are just the beautiful shadows of those moments.
Deva Nirguna, an old timer from Poona 1, lives and creates his paintings at his art retreat centre Atitlan Arte Vista on Lake Atitlan, in the Mayan Highlands, Guatemala. After spending several years in India with Osho, many years of travelling and ‘workshopping’ with the Mother of Tantra, Margo Anand I went into a studio retreat for inner discovery of my own lineage and expression. I discovered my Tibetan links through Osho to Tonka painters and I now teach the inner and outer process of becoming light, through body energy and breath-work, visioning and creative practice.
