Armando starts every picture with sketches of the human body. He then distils all of the sketches into one realistic drawing, which serves as the basis for his abstract composition.
Drawing on his Sufi (mystical Islam) background, Armando embodies the ancient mystical beliefs in inner spirituality in his art. Armando is part of the Neomodern art movement, which promotes spiritual and aesthetic values in art. In the past four years there has been media and TV coverage on Armando’s work both as one of the creators of Neomodernism and as a painter. Armando is currently researching a PhD at Sussex University, his thesis is titled Dialectical Aesthetics.
Armando’s paintings form an integral part of many significant international collections.
