Spriritual Freedom

In this abstract, Matafi shows the freedom and serenity embodied in gentle curves that explore the elegant posture of the soaring bird.

“Spiritual Freedom” is a wonderful study of the joy and gratification of connecting the spirit and energy of nature.

This graceful abstract is a superb demonstration of artist talents and visions, and particularly his wonderful exuberance.
