Daniel Augusto Chiesa (Dan Aug) is a contemporary Uruguayan/Italian Abstract, Constructive, Figurative and  Visual Artist, that provides us with artworks of special features related to the Astronomy Science, Cosmology and Mysticism.

"Dan Aug's paintings offer a fusion of science and mystery, where utopian futurism meets the constructive historical praxis of ancient Egyptian architecture. Looking at the works of Dan Aug, the viewers will initially be impressed by the mythical and mystical narrative that is crossed through their paintings. While not borrowing from a single tradition, and not copying the sacred stories of ancient societies, Dan Aug has found a way to integrate a cosmological understanding of the universe with the technological innovations that shape the way we see the world of today. For this purpose, he also characterizes and incorporates astronomical and cosmological knowledge into his artworks.

What’s perhaps most significant about Dan Aug’s artistry, and the themes he works with, is his preference for oil on canvas. To be sure, since the time of the Renaissance it has been almost commonplace for philosophical and religious themes to be painted in oil. Yet Dan Aug uses oil paints to point out the layered process underlying scientific and technological insights. Thus, his paintings often go by the title of Construction, and, whether figurative or abstract, emphasize the mosaic like patterns out of which our logical understanding of the world."

"...My Art is generated in a magical moment of "communion" between my self and my knowledge on topics related to the Astronomy Science, Astrophysics, Cosmology and Quantum Physics. You should also understand my profound admiration and fascination to the civilization of Ancient Egypt, it is the inspiring muse in my first series. My characteristic saturated colors and my logic pragmatism, which is often painted with geometric figures and symbols, leads me to the abstraction... This is where I mainly find the most appropriate vehicle to leave embodied my message… We tried to express on the canvas the wonders of the universe with the only message that we are sons of the stars, where we come from and where surely we will return some day..."
