Ever since I can remember I have held artistic potential in my soul. My inspiration comes from my essence—my own being. As I create a piece, emotions become colors on the canvas. These feelings are displayed as colors without any specific form, as emotion is equally formless. After I finish shaping a stone or coloring a white canvas, I feel as though I have shared the peace and comfort I feel in my own universe. This potential that I realize, every time I create art, comes from forces inside of me that feel so natural, so automatic, it is like breathing. Creation to me is liberating, even therapeutic. I feel as though I am taking consciousness, or pure energy, and shaping it into art. This is how I communicate with the world. I hope my art triggers emotions in all who view it. I feel art is a portal to the human soul and I am merely the avenue between the two.
Beginning in 2012, Enzo committed to donating 5% of all of his art sales to Corazon de Vida, a US-based non-profit organization that helps abandoned and orphaned children in Baja, Mexico. Corazon de Vida provides children in dire need the necessities of shelter, food, clothing, education and healthcare – as well as hope. CDV not only financially supports orphanages in Baja, but also provides assistance through frequent cross-border visits by board members, staff and volunteers.
