Welcome to Velaio. Velaio is a sailmaker, a craftsman whose work propels and gives motion. In the past a sailmakerʼs work could be seen in the masts of the great ships that plied the oceans of the world exploring, trading and initiating, what we now call globalization. Today artists are the sailmakers binding their various voices together with a common poetic thread that lifts and propels their work above itself, allowing it to sail over and above its often mundane surface texture, to something and someplace beyond the quotidian. It is that thread that binds the work here.
