Christian Velastegui in His Art StudioChristian Velastegui is from Quito, Ecuador. He has studied and worked in the field of art for over 25 years, including painting, engraving, and art direction for film. He has a B.A. from the Central University of Ecuador in visual and fine arts.

In Christian’s words: “I often use my artwork and my life to share aspects of Eastern spirituality and the worldview of the indigenous peoples of the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest.

I enjoy exploring different themes and techniques and call upon a sense of humor, meditation, and playfulness as creative resources.

Art generates and projects an aura. You can see the emotion that inspired a work of art, which is a reflection of what is in the artist’s heart. My intent is to convert into visual language my reflections of the world around me and of my internal world. In many ways, my works are autobiographical and are signs or footprints showing where I have passed.”
