HERITAGE PROJECT

“We imagine & create
to help our planet”

Through our work we shed light on climate change and the devastating consequences of human impact on our ecosystems.

OUR MISSION

Create an art project that
helps the world to connect and act

Inspiration My

Horned Puffin ( Kenai Fjords, AK, USA)

Join me in a small journey to discover the sources of my inspiration from my trips around the world. Here I want to show you some exclusive images I took on my travels. They are so special to me and show the behind the scenes details of creating my work. I hope you enjoy it and discover the essence behind my art.

Manatees (Crystal River, FL, USA)

Being in nature makes me feel like part of the scene. I truly enjoy observing every detail and learning about wildlife behavior in its natural habitat. These feelings inspire me and once I get back to the studio I try to translate them into artwork so that I can show the world my own experience and create awareness about the conservation of ecosystems.

Earth is an incredible inspiration source, an incalculable natural treasure that we are lucky to call home. My goal of converting nature into artwork is to create awareness and interest to change people’s behavior about climate change and protection of our ecosystems. If my artwork inspires even one person to take positive actions towards protecting our earth, everything I do is worth it.

(1) Observe & document

“I consider nature our greatest treasure and I enjoy displaying that in my work.”

Some years ago, in 2018, I painted a mural in Churchill, Manitoba (Canada), a small town in the Hudson Bay, known by the Canadians as the “Polar Bear Capital of the World” for the SeaWalls Festival. It is one of the best places on the planet to watch polar bears in the wilderness, as well as to see the largest concentration of beluga whales. I remember being on the scaffolding and seeing the white patches in the water, while the sea breeze brought their characteristic call closer. It was really incredible, because somehow, and without realizing it, whilst working far from home my two passions combined. This experience made me realize how important it is to feel in order to express myself.

“I realized that being in a location and seeing how nature behaves day to day is what truly thrills me.”

Previously I would feed my imagination with images found in books or the internet, but from that moment on I realized that being in a location and seeing how nature behaves day to day is what truly thrills me. Since then, my interest in nature travel arose. Watching and photographing wild fauna in their natural habitat is now a fundamental part of my creative process. At the end of the day, it’s a matter of living in close proximity with the characters and starting from there, capturing the images and experiences which will become my inspiration. There is no better place to brainstorm than the very place that is the origin of the stage design in the play. This makes me face the blank canvas with a very special emotional charge, which transforms each piece of work into something unique not only from an aesthetic point of view, but also from a personal one. Transforming these memories into works of art takes me back to those places, in a more intimate way. A solitary journey in order to reproduce it inside myself and show that through my own personal vision.

(2) Connect & Act

“Create awareness about the conservation and protection of species through artistic interventions to return to nature what belongs to nature.”

Heritage project is a participative active plan where we want to connect with people through art to make them react and act. The main goal of this project is accomplished through artistic interventions and collaborations to show the world the real threat natural ecosystems worldwide are facing and raise awareness about the conservation and protection of species. To achieve that, we travel to research with local specialized experts and later translate all that information into artworks. Then, part of the benefits coming off these artworks would be donated to associations we collaborate with to return to nature what belongs to nature.
