Camilo Villanueva"Camilo Villanueva paints the interior of the soul; he tries to express the energies that are there but remain unseen.  Energies that are colorful dots of light leading to the horizon of the spirit.  Camilo Villanueva does not intend to be representative nor figurative when he captures the interior of what is not evident. He focuses on the expression of energy, on transcribing its journey and showing its essence.  By doing this, he does not try to capture this essence, he tries to show us that there is a kind of existence within other concrete, evident existences that are there but remain concealed.

We simply cannot see them because we are unwilling to do so.  For Camilo Villanueva the fact that we are not aware of them is not important.  What this Argentinean artist wants is to express with the serenity of the soul the different facets of universal love and the path to spiritual evolution.  There is an explicit need for us, human beings, to meditate and connect with the cosmic soul to achieve our ultimate potential." —
 Joan Lluís Montané, Member of the Spanish Association of Art Critics and the International Association of Art Reviewers.
