Although the meditation techniques of Buddhist teachings are an integral part of his creative practice, this month of fasting and silence also involved a complete exclusion from the outside world and from painting.
The exhibition The Whisper of the Brush presents the works of the Silence series, born out of the return from the ritual of retreat. Building from focused attention, from the naivety and simplicity of the mind to complexity, the paintings are psychological images: they evoke the rational, logical and spiritual perception of the viewer at the same time. Just like the way the works were born: with the whisper of a brush.

As part of his exhibition The Whisper of the Brush, Venezuelan painter Zeus Salas invites the audience to a musical voyage in the exhibition space of the Hadik Café.
A selection of live music curated by the painter plays as background music to the paintings he created during the retreat, with the tunes allowing the audience to experience the paintings at an even deeper level, with more senses.
The tracks take the viewer-listener on a journey of reception from classical music to Latin American tunes drawn from the painter's cultural roots. About the artist Zeus Milenko Steven Salas was born in Venezuela.
