Now he is settling down in the U.S., though The Sun interviewed him by email, while he was spending time in San Telmo working on his art and spending time with the more than 50 members of his extended family.

The key to art, and life in general, according to Adaro, is being open to the world and everything it has to offer.

"I don't try to reproduce nature — art is nature," said Adaro. "Beauty is here, we just have to let it happen, not get in its way, whether it’s a person, a landscape or some magical color combination."

Gontarek tells The Sun that her husband is the definition of a true artist.

"He is his artwork and his artwork is him; you can't really pull the two apart."
