Awesome Album Art Shows An Out of Body Meditation Experience

Sunday 07.27.2014 , Posted by
1 Mental Extensions - Inner Reality

Through the practice of meditation, especially in sensory deprivation tanks, people can achieve psychedelic, out of body experiences. Australian artist Lewis Smart depicts this in a unique bird’s eye view of a person meditating. The digital illustration was created as an album cover for the psychedelic downtempo duo Mental Extensions for their album Inner Reality. Smart came up with the idea for the image while doing a visual meditation exercise himself, in which he tried to imagine the entire room at once. The meditating person and the room are based on him self. The other two backgrounds are imaginary. [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...]

I was absolutely enthralled with the works of Amanda Sage at Burning Man’s Fractal Nation gallery, where I spent much of my time that week.

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...]
