Visionary Art from the Amazon Jungle

Friday 02.07.2014 , Posted by
1 Luis Tamani Amasifuen

Although similar techniques have been achieved in the digital realm, Luis Tamani Amasifuen’s works are all hand painted. From the jungle of Pucallpa, Peru, Amasifuen creates beautiful paintings from his shamanistic visions. A graduate of the Escuela Superior de Formacion Artistica Eduardo Meza Saravia, his works are rich in vibrant colors and fractal details with a mythical, spiritual vibe and a theme of rainforest protection and conservation. His works were exhibited at Festival Amo Amazonia in Trapoto 2010. [Read more...]

Psychedelic Creature Portraits Drawn With Intricate, Overlapping Lines of Colored Pen

Thursday 08.08.2013 , Posted by

Mossi-1

When looking at illustrations by Korean visual artist Mossi, I am reminded of Spirograph designs, but peering from beneath the geometric patterns are the eyes of mysterious creatures. More impressive than the depth and detail of each psychedelic portrait is the fact that each was drawn freestyle, by hand using colored pen and ballpoint pen. The intricate strokes were meticulously overlapped to give off a level of brilliance that is easy to get lost in. [Read more...]

Abraxas by Stefan Mierz

Want to support artists, create jobs in America, and look ridiculously cool? Then you should consider pre-ordering a vibrant t-shirt by RaveNectar so that this visionary company can get its feet on the ground. Not only will you have a shirt that will surely get you noticed and have people asking where you found that amazing wearable art, but you will also be supporting the independent artist who created the design of your choice. The t-shirts are created on a sublimation printer, which is very new and much pricier than silk screening, so RaveNectar needs your help to open their own print shop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (far, far from China).

Born in the beautiful “city of eternal springtime,” Medellín Colombia, Natitota embraced the vibrant colors, people, and music that surrounded her. She expresses her vision of the magnificence of nature and love that she has experienced through her paintbrush in a unique style that vibrates with energy.

Freestyle Creations Peek Into the Universe

Tuesday 01.29.2013 , Posted by

1 john speaker

While most artists have a concept in mind as they approach the canvas, John Speaker is more of a freestyler. As he sits down to start a piece, he touches his marker or paintbrush to the canvas and lets his consciousness take care of the rest. He says,

“The creation becomes an evolving chaos of the purest emotions; they do not represent happiness or sadness, confusion or enlightenment, hope or doubt; they are simply the culmination of everything and nothing. The concept of a mistake becomes completely irrelevant in the process, as the confines of our societal definitions have been shed, and the energy of the universe is allowed to present itself unrestrained. My creation becomes something more than an expression of life. It has become life itself.”

When I first discovered John Speaker’s art, I got lost in each piece, trying to interpret and put my own spin on the images before me. Stay tuned after the jump for our interview with him, then check out JohnSpeaker.com to see more. [Read more...]

The Essence of Being: Spiritual Photomanipulation

Wednesday 11.07.2012 , Posted by

The moment I saw these incredible works of art, I was immediately transplanted back to Fractal Nation at Burning Man. Cameron Gray’s art is like a new wave, digital version of Alex Gray’s astounding collection. His images capture what I believe to be the essence of existence. Cameron Gray seems to be tapping in to a porthole that many have never experienced. From what I’ve seen, the majority of visionary art is made up of loving beings with good intentions; nothing to be feared. [Read more...]

Work the Angle: Psychedelic Artwork by Matt Andres

Wednesday 05.23.2012 , Posted by

I came across the work of Matt Andres purely by accident. I was cruising 8Tracks — a music site where you get to make your own mixes and upload whatever cover art you want — when I stumbled across his incredible profile. I’ve also been super into beat music and hip-hop lately, whether it’s from LA, the UK, or Europe; and his mixes are legit. I recognized some of it, and the stuff I didn’t know was stuff I could definitely get into. That’s right when I made another discovery: this kid can make rad art as well. This was part of my first impression with his art:

“I draw because I need something to do when I’m listening to beats. And I listen to beats because I need something to do when I draw.” [Read more...]
