Fernando Velázquez is on a journey and along the way he is painting with oil on canvas.
“I feel that the art of today should engage people on an emotional level, changing perception and revealing something new. I want to light a candle that never goes out, like Sibelius, to contribute to tradition with my personal vision. I want to move people as much as great art moves me, the art done by men and women before me. Although I struggle sometimes to give form to what I see inside, I believe that my paintings encapsulate life, touching the corners of a small universe of thought. Art is good when deeply felt, beyond technique, intention and knowledge; it is good when born from necessity, true passion and the strength to follow a path, regardless of the outcome. I paint to share my discoveries with anyone who sees the same endless journey towards light.” – Fernando Velázquez
