Vito Petrus Saracino, Derry Member Since January 2018 Artist Statement I am an Italian iconographer living in Ireland since 2003. I am specialized in sacred drawings, I believe that every painting created by me must have a spiritual symbol that invites those who admire it to a sense of transcendence. I have started to paint religious images since a very young age. In recent years after started to study iconography in Newman College Ireland newmancollege.ie I have developed my own style which I call "a bridge" between an Icon and a painting. I paint sacred images like icons not on wood, but on a paper like a regular painting hence I call this style "a bridge". Hoping that you like my works, which are a fruit of prayers and spiritual awareness.
