I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. (2 Timothy 4:1-5)
I am the eldest in the family of artists. My three brohers, one sister, my wife, her sister (who happens to be my brother's wife) and my cousin are into arts and crafts. Our late father and our uncle did graphic design and crafts too while our mom did fashion design. So art seems to run in the family and is showing signs of being inherited by our children.
FERRARIS ART STUDIO is a company of the Ferraris Family of artists and creative professionals. We are all self-taught, learned from and have competed against each other but inspired one another.
My own personal preoccupation now, aside from earning a living for my family through art, is to educate people about the role of art in spirituality and to rectify the use of art that lead to idolatry. Art, although believed to be a kind of international visual language, could speak a thousand words through the images made out of it and could therefore act as textbooks to the ignorant. That's why an accompanying literature and verbal explanation about the true essence of Christianity, aside from the artists' own struggle for personal holiness, could greatly help bring spiritual enlightenment to people.
