The spiritual paintings of Massimo Nalin are populated with surreal landscapes and angelic creatures that he describes as "powerful, with the lightness of a feather." Nalin uses his work to express his inner emotions through harmonized, glowing colors. He says his paintings are a mirror into his innermost soul, a way to come to terms with his deepest feelings and find healing through art. Every piece is approached in a meditative way, with Nalin clearing his mind and letting his "painting hand" take over, transforming a plain white canvas into a powerful, expressive spiritual world.
Nalin is a native of South Tyrol and Italy, and worked as a welder and stucco plasterer before following his passion for painting. Despite the very personal nature of his work, there is something universal in it, being influenced by social, cultural, political, or religious views. Nalin says he wants his paintings to dissolve the boundaries that separate human beings from one another, creating a bridge into his viewers' hearts and touching all five of their senses.
