Don Pablo Amaringo makes his Passage.

Don Pablo Amaringo, one of the most significant artists of our age, shaman of the highest order, and teacher to many, died November 16th.

The world of art has lost a truly original visionary – a seer in all senses of the word. I think we all join together in wishing him a safe passage to the other side of the river… -Laurence Caruana

Many blessings, thoughts and love to those who knew him personally. His art will continue to inspire wonder in many generations to come.

British Isles artist Daniel Mirante is a gifted painter, teacher and writer who shares a wealth of insights into the artist’s craft and its relationship to the sacred. His interest in visionary and sacred art was and continues to be strongly influenced by intensive ceremonial work within indigenous cultures and mystical lineages, including indigenous traditions of the Americas, Dzogchen teachings, and through exploring the archeology of ideas of Western Consciousness, such as Gnosticism and Hermeticism. Understanding working with symbols as a dynamic language of spiritual enquiry, he developed a passionate interest in painting in 2002, and sought instruction in 2004 from Brigid Marlin, a venerable teacher in the lineage of Ernst Fuchs. Through the creation of websites and and through exhibiting and lecturing internationally, leading workshops and holding space for collaboration, Mirante has been instrumental in spreading awareness of contemporary Sacred and Visionary Art. A teacher at the Visions in the Mischtechnik Seminars with Amanda Sage and Laurence Caruana, author of The First Manifesto of Visionary Art, in 2012 he worked as assistant to Ernst Fuchs, and is a founder of the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art. Currently residing in Devon, UK, Daniel currently focusses on grass roots art education, writing, painting and storytelling.

  3. Dear Friends of ayahuasca. Here is a chance to help the students of Don Pablo Amaringo’s Usko Ayar school of Amazonian Painting. I spent four months in Pucallpa with Don Pablo teaching at the school in the hope of animating some of his paintings. I can say from experience that Don Pablo was an exceptional person, a great storyteller, and a charismatic figure in this otherwise drab city. We have used some of the proceeds of the sale of this CD which I recorded personally to help handicapped youngsters in Pucallpa get into the school.

    Love light and peace to you all,


  4. Very, very sad indeed. All artists should aim to paint sparks across humanity’s soul, and Pablo Amaringo did that most perfectly indeed.

    I hope his last days were peaceful and that his spirits gathered him up into the great collective animism that is the destination for us all.

    A visionary artist called Alec Pearson also passed recently – as his wife said to me ‘At least we have his art’. This is true of Pablo too – the man is gone but his visions remain with us, and for that I am immensely grateful

    Thank you, deeply, Pablo, for painting sparks across my soul,
