I see art as a way of approaching the divine
Story and artwork from Paulo Gobes
Hi, my name is Paulo. I live in brazil.
Art always reminds me that life is not just the chaos and suffering that we are often immersed in.
Every time I appreciate a work of art or try to represent the beauty of forms, nature and people in my art, I feel that the world still has a way, that we are not here by chance. In that brief moment I feel that the divine lives in me and in the world around us.
So I see the role of the artist as an agent capable of bringing this feeling of union with the divine through beauty for everyone who can get in touch with his art. So that for an instant the observer can forget the problems of his life and feel a little joy and peace.
I know that Drawing Academy will help me hone my skills so that I can better represent the beauty of this wonderful and sacred world we live in.
The artwork I send is a portrait of one of my favorite authors Paulo Coelho. I think he did in his books what I try to do in my art.
