The purpose of life is to live.

Essenza is a labor of love. The essence of Art in my eyes. And Art, sometimes, can haunt you. Can consume you.

When you pour yourself into something, it's hard to let it go.

Born from a sketch made more than 3 years ago, this was intended to be my genesis on Art Blocks. It took me another year and a half, countless refinements, Rinascita, more refinements, and a rewrite from scratch to finally be ready to share this with the rest of the world.

It's personal, and it's intense. A fragment of my story. The end of an era, and hopefully, the beginning of a new one.

No matter how hard it can be. If you truly love something, you need to learn how to set it free.
