His paintings reveal deeply spiritual aspects of life and existence. Working in the Renaissance tradition of painting with glazes, Armando incorporates myriad transparent layers of paint that both veil and reveal the essence of human form, distiling and abstracting each of his colourful images, and thus depicting a mystical imagery of inner movement.
