About the artist:


I'm not good at talking about my self, so here is a bullet list of facts instead:

  • My name is Dacio, and ever since I can remember I've always been curious and fascinated by nature, art, science and technology.
  • I believe in the importance of educating and cultivating your sense of wonder and creativity, every day a little more.
  • I'm convinced we live in privileged times. Never before, has there been such access to information, to connectivity, to learning and networking. I plan to take full advantage of it all.
  • On 2009, The International Year of Astronomy, I finally connected the dots and decided to dedicate my time to express with oil colors my love for science and astronomy. I wish to share this with you, hoping that it will spark something good into your life.

I'm going to finish this with one of my favorite quotes:

"I've been caught, so to speak — like someone who was given something wonderful when he was a child, and he's always looking for it again."
-Richard Feynman
