"Truly my hope is that my love for painting and my gift for reading people's emotions will make a frankly kind difference."
San Diego-based intuitive artist Jeremy Sicile-Kira is a synesthete – he sees emotion in color. In 2012, Jeremy (who is autistic and communicates by typing) began to tell others about his dreams: dreams that he was painting the emotions of people into colorful abstract portraits. One night he dreamt that he painted ten of his paintings and had an art show. Jeremy was encouraged by his mother to make this dream come true, and began to paint in real life. In 2016 his first curated solo art show was covered by national and local media, resulting in a sold-out show and many private commissions. Since then, Jeremy has been meeting with clients in his studio in San Diego, or via Facetime. Jeremy ‘reads’ their colors, then creates beautiful paintings and writes descriptions of the meaning of each color. More recently, Jeremy has been asked by some clients to create a mixed ash painting of a loved one who has passed. “Truly I greatly love doing these paintings,” Jeremy shares, “because I believe if I paint the beautiful colors of the soul who has passed I can provide some comfort to those still living and honor their life as well as their passing.” To create a mixed ash painting and its description, Jeremy watches videos of the loved one who has passed, and listens as the client talks about their lost relative or friend.
