"I think artists see things that other people don’t and my mission is to inspire people to watch deeper into themselves.
So I make Galactic trips and come back from deep space with colorful treasures👽"
I am Claudio Bel, a multidisciplinary artist, I create multimedia works seeking a strong connection between different arts. I experiment with poetry, painting, music, and programming, bringing together these expressive channels within video art products, interactive applications, and animated sculptures accessible through virtual and augmented reality.
My scientific profession carried out in daily life is manifested in my artistic exploration which investigates the relationship between man, nature, and technology. I search for meanings within the contemporary human experience and try to define the new trans-human nature of digital natives. I tell from the inside the point of view of cyber organisms: human lives which, through the connection with machines and the universe, find themselves experiencing life paths completely different from those that have characterized the history of mankind up until today. In fact, our experience of the world is no longer made up only of natural and concrete images but is increasingly dotted with abstract and artificial representations. For about 30 years we have lived most of our lives connected to screens and machines, we travel with our minds within completely imaginary universes and, through these, we create profoundly different memories and projections, imbued with glitchy and psychedelic visions.
To overcome the disorientation of this existence that winds along paths never traveled before, the union between science and spirituality is fundamental: science as the basis of reality and spirituality as the understanding of something broader; both necessary and interdependent. Therefore, I focus on what characterizes our lives on a practical level and at the same time I explore worlds and concepts beyond material reality.
Actively engaged for years in connecting artists and collectors within an international community, I have exhibited my works in important events in New York, London, Davos, Milan, and in various locations in Sardinia.
For me, my role as an artist is to translate the experience of transcendent worlds into this reality, continually seeking innovative ways to connect these parallel universes. Ultimately, my fluid and mysterious art escapes any pattern, it is an alarm clock to bring you ù back to the state of consciousness and invite you to stop and immerse yourrself in yourself to question your nature again, your role as human being and spiritual entity.

Biography freely adapted from an article on Insistrum by Celium Grey Art Historian and Writer
Claudio Bel is an italian alien multidisciplinary artist His works are intimate compositions with symbolic meanings, a reflection of himself and his history Although he is a man of science, he has always shared a strong bond with the arts from poetry to painting, singing and playing the guitar In this regard, it is no surprise that Leonardo da Vinci is one of his favorite artists. Indeed, according to Claudio, the combination of science and spirituality is the key to understanding the universe, since science explains the basis of life and spirituality is the knowledge of something greater, and without one of these two perspectives our vision is always unbalanced.
As he experimented with video game development, 3 D art unexpectedly entered his life Almost for fun, recording videos of his videogame creations, he realized the expressive potential of 3 D and, in March 2021 he decided to explore the world of NFTs Claudio was looking for a way to combine music with poetry and visual arts and the creation of 3 D animations combined with the technological potential of NFTs gave him that freedom of expression and that ability to experiment that he had been looking for for a long time.
We watch him explore worlds and ideas beyond our own, fascinated by lucid dreaming and the concept of other realms and dimensions, Claudio tries to express how all that exists is interconnected and his works represent precisely his meaning of unity. His art is a window into the artist's world, and at the same time speaks to our inner truth, it is an intimate expression of the artist that creates a very personal connection with the viewer.
He explains :''I am influenced by psychedelia, meant as exploration and manifestation of the mind, but I don't like to use the classic psychedelic style, in my works I try to describe what exists beyond, in what I call the 9 th layer Beyond the world of bright colors and euphoria, beyond fractal geometries, there is a deep universe of information, less glittering and more mysterious and that's what I try to picture through my art To do this I take inspiration from visual art, poetry, music, cinema and many other forms of expression, I think the arts should influence each other going beyond the supports and the various techniques to communicate a deep meaning, perceptible with every sense".
For some years he has been actively working to bring together artists and collectors within an international community called PSYFAM-PSYDAO which today counts hundreds of members. His works have been exhibited in New York for NFTNYC 2022 in London during NFTLONDON 2022 in Davos in Switzerland for the World Economic Forum 2023 and in Italy during various group exhibitions and a solo exhibition.
Claudio believes that his mission, as an artist, is to bring his experience of the world of ideas into this reality, always finding different ways to connect these two parallel universes In conclusion, it is really difficult to fit his fluid and mysterious art into a scheme, the only way to experience it is to immerse yourself in one of his works and see, hear and feel.
