Epigenetics and the power of Art

"Epigenetics is the study of how your behaviors and environment can cause changes that affect the way your genes work. Unlike genetic changes, epigenetic changes are reversible and do not change your DNA sequence, but they can change how your body reads a DNA sequence." 


There is increasing evidence which indicates that artistic creativity is influenced by epigenetic processes that act both as targets and mediators of neurotransmitters as well as steroid hormones.

From my point of view, an extremely interesting subject presented in an artistic form. In the near future I will present a collection of paintings and graphics (I am also working on sculpture) in relation to epigenetics.
