THEO PINTO 

(New York / USA)


ARTIST STATEMENT  

Skyscapes is an exploration of the mysterious beauty of the natural phenomena of light when day meets night and sky meets earth. Working with oil paint and resin, he reduces the subject to the quality of light, aiming to evoke stillness and quiet reflection. This body of work dives into how we experience the sky; not as an external image but as a shared moment. It is an invitation to contemplate the sky as a common denominator bringing all people—from all times—closer together, both physically and cosmically.
