An artistic collaboration between artist Nicholas Oliver and poet Dave Russo. The Poetic Heart book takes you through a journey of the human spirit through poetry and art. Dave Russo's personal philosophy about the non-finite nature of love and beauty of polyamorous relationships is deeply entrenched in his poetic work. This is demonstrated, in part, by the support of his husband and the editorial collaboration of his partner. When other kids wanted to be firemen and policemen, Nick Oliver wanted to be an architect…to build things of beauty.
His first memories were of spending time in his Aunt’s Antique Store. The peace and joy he found there stirred something inside him. He found himself more and more attracted to the arts.
Eventually he dedicated himself to the fine arts. This shift satisfied his attraction to mathematics and structure while nurturing his desires to deconstruct our world and create tangible beauty.
