Hilario’s first book translates why he paints into how he paints. And it answers a question often posed to him by his many fans. Why, when one views a painting by Hilario, does one feel a sudden emotional connection to it and to him? In his book, he explains how he makes this happen.

He says; “As a self aware artist, I work from my soul, heart, and mind…and my mind is the last tool I need to create my art. My soul allows the ethereal chaos of my spirit to emerge; my heart allows my humanity to surface; and my mind channels awareness of my soul’s and heart’s expression into my art.”

The book features more than 60 pages of text combined with 35 full color images of Hilario’s work in an oversized lay-flat format. It allows the reader to explore the vision, depth and theory behind some of his most stunning works. Hilario published this book in April, 2009.
