Luis Tamani Amasifuen
Luis Tamani is one of Peru’s pre-eminent visionary artists who grew up on the banks of the Ucayali River near Pucallpa, surrounded by a rainforest wonderland of plants, trees, animals and birds, and immersed in the medicine world of Ayahuasca from a young age.
He studied Art at the Eduardo Meza Saravia Escuela Superior de Formacion Artistica in Pucallpa, whose Shipibo founder Sr Meza was one of the greatest proponents of Amazonian painting and a teacher of the Neo-Amazonico, figurative, surrealist, shamanic style.
Tamani’s work incorporates an exquisitely fine detail of brush and the use of naturalistic colours and composition that endow his paintings with an ancient, soulful, elegance and powerfully communicate his philosophies of love and Oneness. He has exhibited his works throughout South America, Europe and the United States and is increasingly becoming recognized as one of the best visionary painters of our time.Source: cayashobo.secure.retreat.guru
