Joma Sipe was born in the city of Porto, Portugal, on August 2, 1974.
Joma Sipe spent his childhood in the city of Vila Nova de Gaia, near Porto, where he still lives and has his studio.
He started painting conventional pictures, such as landscapes and portraits, using oils and acrylics with exuberant colors. Eventually, he realized that this was not the way he wanted to express his spiritual and artistic feelings. Step by step he became aware of an inner yearning.
When he was between thirteen and fifteen years old, he started to feel restless, wanting to discover the reasons for living on this planet, trying to find answers to questions we all ask: “Where do we come from?” “What are we doing here?” “Where do we go after our bodies die?”
These thoughtful questions sent him to the local public library in Porto, where he found books written by H. P. Blavatsky and Annie Besant, translated into Portuguese.
Soon after reading those books, Joma felt a deep and inexplicable connection with H. P. Blavatsky and her teachings.
He had the opportunity to read Isis Unveiled, The Secret Doctrine, The Voice of the Silence, and other works by H.P.Blavatsky While finding his way through esoteric literature, he learned about the chakras, occult anatomy, sacred geometry, the golden number, several techniques for meditation and concentration, the alchemical process, the Kabbalah, and many other arcane subjects.
Additionally, Joma also got acquainted with the ideas of Rudolf Steiner, Gurdjieff, and Ouspensky. A series of 100 “illuminated” works appear in his book “Soul of Light: Works of Illumination“, published by Quest Books, in November 2012.
Some words from the Artist:
I have no category to “insert” my work. It can be called “visionary”, “symbolic”, “geometrical”, “mystical”, etc. It is all that, but I feel it is beyond that. For me, it captures the essence of the human soul, the “anima” of the individual, and reflects somehow the inner structure of the universe inside each human being.
Some works that I do represent, in my way of thinking and interpreting them, the real structure of the energy that supports the universe, that’s how I represent It. I call It Energy, Light or Love.
I make with all the geometrical patterns and drawings a kind of an inner code, that can only be understood by the ones that are connected with it and remember it.
Fixed stars in a hidden universe, Within thee and thy being.
Lights that are discovered in the heart of The living light, In your body and your look.
There is a universe of galaxies in thee, That surrounds the verdant valleys.
There is a Shepherd who loves you, And, hidden, veils you, A certainty that your soul is eternal. ~Joma Sipe, poetry.
