The Visionary Worlds of Agostino Arrivabene

MIROIR Magazine:  There is a spiritual quality to your paintings, what inspires the visions you paint?

Agostino Arrivabene:  I think it’s a dimension of suspense and anticipation. Since I was a child, when I lost my mother prematurely, this loss placed me in front of the unknown, and that which abruptly takes life. For me, death, from the start, became synonymous with questions without answers and for a long time death became identified with a voyage without destination, a search towards the unknown. The certainty and conviction in myself grew roots towards that diaphragm that divides the real world from the spiritual. The diaphragm that separates and the vibrations necessary to give pictorial substance to my iconographic world.
