Art is an act of imagination and creation! It is the symbolic representation of our world! Through multiple it reveals our past, it reflects our present and it offers insights into our future.
"Art reflects the spirit of humankind and the age in which lives ..."
"Art originates in the mind ..."
"Art is human emotion expressed in terms of a medium ..."
Painting is a visual revelation of humans' emotions and desires. It is a way of interpreting reality in the quest to reach an understanding of the Universe and to love this unique and wonderful planet - our Earth!
Beyond the real boundaries there exists the imaginary and the fantastic. Through painting and poetry, Francisco Pacheco is embracing all the continents and sharing the influences of people from Asia, Europe, Africa, and Australia.
