FAQ

What characterizes your artistic style?

I will speak more of an artistic mission than an artistic style. Through my works remains a real intention to accompany people towards a better well-being, an inner healing and a spiritual awakening process. I chose to use intuitive and spontaneous painting to allow others to enter their own state self-discovery. The process is quite simple and yet so difficult at the same time because it is a question of living in a way of completely letting go and allowing the magic to manifest and operate through one’s fingers and hands. One of the peculiarities and uniqueness qualities of my creations lies in the fact that they all are painted using only my fingers or a knife. I never use brushes.

How are your works therapeutic?

We need to rethink the function of works of art in our places of life, in our offices or in our public spaces. As a Gestalt Therapist by trade, I’m not in the process of creating art for art as a more traditional artist might, but rather creating art for the soul. Looking at my paintings, there is nothing to say, nothing to judge, nothing to try to figure out or understand. Instead, just simply be there in a moment with oneself and the art in a mutual silence and welcome all the messages that it will have to transmit to you. Some will see their mental agitation subside, while others will be reconnected with their joie de vivre and their energy level. Still others will see their imaginations stimulate. To each person his work. To each soul his messages. If you want to know more, click here.

How are your works unique?

A work of art expresses the creative power of the artist. All my works are the result of tuning into my creative and emotional stimulus and allowing it to burst into a moment that expresses itself on the canvas through my fingers. All my creations are unique pieces created in a single copy.

Are your works signed?

All my works are signed at the back of the canvas so that you can put your painting in any direction you wish and this, according to your tastes and moods may change day by day. My signature is always affixed on the bottom right which indicates the direction in which I painted the painting. Nevertheless, I strongly encourage you to rotate your piece regularly to see, each time, a new interpretation, new messages and new energies. The intuitive painting of non-intention guides us to that, namely, to look at his painting every day as a new blank page in order to do the same with our life.

Are all your works of art authentic?

As a painter and artist registered at the House of Artists, my paintings are entirely created in the here and now with my hands, my fingers and the knife and are never the result of any reproduction.

Will the work I order be identical to the photo published on your site?

As stipulated in article 11 of the general conditions of sale (accessible at the bottom of the page of the site), I take particular care to publish only photos of good quality which represent as closely as possible the aspect and the colors of each piece. Nevertheless, there may be very slight differences between the photo and the original.

How can I stay informed about the release of your new creations?

You can do this in two ways. The first is by going to the homepage of www.karunaspirit or www.karunaspirit.art and scrolling down to “Latest Creations”. As soon as a work is finished it is automatically displayed in this section. The second is by subscribing to my newsletter that informs you, among other things, of the release of any of my new creations.

Are your paintings sold framed?

No. I prefer to leave this to the freedom and tastes of the buyer. However, the four sides of each of my works are always painted in either in black or in the continuity of the canvas to allow the use of any colour or style of framework you may choose.

What are the prices displayed?

The prices of my works are the prices that I have set myself for my creations. Always keep in mind that when you buy a piece of art from an artist, you are buying more than just an item. You are purchasing a universe, a vision of the world, a way of life created with the combination of joy but also of difficult and painful moments. This means that by purchasing one of my paintings, you welcome to your home a small fragment of who I am, and of my journey.
