About the artist

Basilio is an artist painter about whom nothing has been known

Therefore, I invite you to look at my paintings and help me to unbury their secrets, to bring them to light, adding in consequence your own mark to the creative process.

Upon exploring my paintings I want you to go back to your childhood and rediscover the mysteries of the world.

Pasmao (Astonished)

“Nothing better than primitive sculpture have been created. Who is not attracted by the precision of cavern paintings? Assirian reliefs still have the same purity on their expression.
