Press Release:

Michael Viola III will be showing some of his newest works on paper and canvas at Piola Restaurant E12th St./Broadway NY, NY. Opening reception on August 13th 6-8PM showing through September
Michael is a self-taught artist with a background in healing. He studied transpersonal psychology in Santa Fe, NM, a branch of psychology that allowed him to immerse deeply into the shamanic and spiritual worlds of the American Southwest, Amazon Jungle, and Andean Highlands. In this time he received the unique gifts of working with esteemed indigenous elders and healers. This new spiritual perspective shattered the former framework through which he saw the world. Now, every day is a gift and by spiritual guidance he receives his blessings. Michael currently lives and works in NYC and can be reached at His art work can be viewed at

Statement: My art is a language from spirit that I have learned to allow flow through me. The more I connect to the Great Mystery the larger and more bold the work. The art is purely intuitive and emulates no other school of process or style. I acknowledge my spiritual connection and my artistic responsibility by respecting all life and striving to live in balance, gratitude, and integrity. This is a vibratory state which is most refreshingly maintained through a devoted spiritual connection and a shamanic lifestyle. Through me these vibrations are then translated into depictions of color, line, and form. Much like the quantum reality in which we exist, forms blend and separate, like parallel dimensions, communicating different perspectives and experiences. These multi-layered depths, entice the viewer to enter, as into a labyrinth, evoking different feelings and histories at every turn. Each viewer's experience is unique and the healing is personal. My purpose in life and in art is to serve community and to ground spirit. This work is a conduit to the divine and our collective experience, sharing it, similarly, facilitates others' connection. Please enjoy.
Thank you
