About the Author
Devakrishna Marco Giollo was born in Bellinzona, Ticino, Switzerland in 1953. In 1970 he studied at the Architect School STS of Trevano, but left after a year realizing that the intensive technical studies were not going to be his real calling. He then joined in 1971 in Lugano the School of Art CSIA, where he got trained with some of the best contemporary artists and teachers of Switzerland 1973 he then won the second prize for sculpture at the Villa Saroli Exhibition, followed by the Bariffi Prize for his 3’15 m. sculpture, exhibited at the Congress House of Lugano Giollo traveled all over the world, from Oregon to California, from New York to Sydney and from Singapore to Hong Kong, exhibiting a variety of new styles of work in many countries. In 2000 he returned to Europe. He now lives in Switzerland, works in his two ateliers in Scoenenbuch and Magdino in Ticino. In 2003 and 2004 he won the second price of the Landfall Art Center recycling art competition in Alberoni, Lido di Venezia, Italy. Giollo’s art is concerned with beauty and a peaceful, silent space of meditation. It is this dimension, in stark contrast to the art-worlds ’pretensions' of constant ‘novelty’ and ‘meaning’, which he hopes to share. As he himself says: "For me painting is a meditative act When I paint I am totally lost in the act of painting. It is a ’no- mind’ experience. What I am left with afterwards is a canvas that wants to go, wants to make someone or some place happy. When that happens I feel honored and grateful; I feel I gave a little something, a little beauty to the world." He also created this infamous comic: The Mystic Rose and the Magic of the Empty Chair in honor of the modern mystic and master Osho. The entire comic symbolizes the search and the findings of the master and the inner transformation one has to go through to uncover one's true self.
