Rafael Corzo, has also been distinguished fellow at the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts & Sciences, and been a guest artist at California State University Long Beach.
With the theses “Creative Consciousness-The Art of Allowance”,“Intuitive Enlightenment”, and “Dimensions of Creation”, Corzo’s creations are layers of information, and a micro-macro cosmos, with characteristics attributed to an alternate universe where all possibilities already exist. Totally ambidextrous, Corzo’s creations expand to ceramics, drawing, painting, watercolor, sculpture, installations, metal casting, and neon light. He can also draw, paint, and write with the left foot and writes backwards. In the further development of his creative mind, Corzo is actively seeking understanding of lucid dreaming, astral projection, remote viewing, meditation, visualization, and the full awakening and potential of the pineal gland or third eye.
