Jean Michel Basquiat
Michael Gavrieli began his career on his own without any school of art. He is using his hidden talent and creativity to create unique luxury art work. He has discovered a 2500 years old encaustic technique with organic hot wax (using flat iron and hot air pistol) mixed with 24 carat gold powder and native silver powder. It creates amazing shapes and designs which leave a lasting and spectacular effect and give a touch of luxury to your home or office.
Gold and silver alone are symbols of wealth and were the world’s currencies in the past. They emanate a special energy and vibe when used as an integral part of Michael’s painting. Michael loves to work with gold and that’s why he is also starting to design his own unique gold jewellery which will soon be available under his brand Michael Gavrieli ©.
Michael is deeply studying the psychology of meaning of colours and with the help of his wife Gerta (an unbelievably gifted spiritual healer) he is creating a special series of paintings for boosting your financial prosperity. He has tested the paintings among his friends and the results were impressive, bringing unforeseen financial prosperity.
Michael is always improving his talent by private studies with top artists not just in the Czech Republic and Slovakia but also in the EU. His first contact with art was when he was 25 years old and met an art collector David in Prague. There were more than 100 paintings in his apartment and storage. Thus a dream to create his own art started but Michael did not know how as he did not attend any art school nor had any experience with art. It started as a dream uncertain of being a reality in the future.
After wild years in Prague as a once successful but also unsuccessful entrepreneur, he moved on with his life and lived in Spain, USA (Alaska and California). Then the life situation brought him back home to Slovakia where he started to begin his successful career as an artist.
He is very grateful to his wife Gerta for his big move towards art as she introduced him to encausting technique of art. Michael became in love with the art work and created his own atelier. He spent almost every day working on himself and experimenting with different styles and techniques. He then discovered and started to experiment with real 24 carat gold and native silver and the results were outstanding. People around him loved the art. Only the cost of making was very high so Michael had to find wealthy clients. He realized he became the most expensive modern living artist in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Michael’s mentors in the USA (Brendon Burchard, Tai Lopez, Tony Robins) are transforming his life and making his life better in the area of health, wealth, love and happiness. His main aim and inspiration is to allow others to enjoy more happiness and wealth through his unique art works!
Through his art Michael aims to spread more happiness, energy and wealth throughout the world.

Every painting has an original certificate with the signature of the artist in front of the painting and on the back side.
Looking forward to meeting you. Your sincerely. Michael Gavrieli
Perhaps these words can be used to evaluate the artistic quality of the artwork created by Michael Gavrieli (born on 27 August 1982): “only in part is he self-taught”. He never completed academic education, nor even attended an art school. His interest was in beauty and he felt the need to express himself, to capitalise creatively on his talent, and this all brought him to courses where he learned encaustic art (a 2,500-year-old technique for making hot beeswax) and took up gold-plating. These ancient techniques opened the door to his intuitive development of colour composition that hardly reflects what you see visually. When observing how Gavrieli composes his colours, it is critically important to view the sustained contemplation and peaceful mediation, releasing your mind from strictly rational pondering. It is as if he is creating mandalas, those ritualistic geometric designs symbolic of the universe. But they are not meant to draw your attention to the transience of the world and the frontiers of human endeavour, but rather for you, like him, to plunge into inner prayer. Michael Gavrieli’s artworks are not paintings in the true sense; instead he provides the keys to visual clues that help expose the human mind to the depth of the subconscious. The hypnotic effect of his compositions is intensified by his rich use of powdered gold and silver, which in the true sense of the word transforms them into jewellery. Looking at the image itself, the subtle light of these precious metals evokes the presence of other dimensions. Gavrieli’s encaustics can be seen to document the world in a state of deep mediation, when the material is only limiting and producing a barrier, while the spiritual – though only briefly awakened and not yet fully developed – opens the curtain draping the window to an unknown spiritual world where an essential element is the human soul and falling in love with the powerful and all-knowing Good, the essence of everything.
