Andrea Burden, one of the great artists of our time is lovingly depicted as the creatress of the universe who is departing this realm only to further inspire and spread the love which effortlessly emanated from her being. This piece is meant to inspire and stir emotions of love and creativity which were the backbone of her existence on this planet.
Sephalo is a multi-dimensional creature playing out her transition into the world of the mermaids. Although her transformation is not complete, you as a viewer are invited to witness a moment in her process as she weaves an underwater cocoon to aid her medimorphosis into the new world. Accompanied by her space horse companion Sypher, they are captivated by the viewer for a brief moment of timelessness.
Pele, the goddess of fire is finally achieving her freedom from the bonds of Earth which in turn shows a new emotion which is not really shown in traditional Hawaiian art, the joy of being truly free.
In this shifting and challenging Time, I feel a deep stirring, a potent blossoming of creativity. It is all around us, gaining momentum and strength; in our own lives, in those of our family and community, and in the collective experience. It is our divine duty to create and share inspiration, especially at this time of change. As we honor our own personal creativity, we contribute vitally to the whole. We inspire those around us to celebrate, we empower them to create, we manifest visual mirrors to the light, divinity, and potential of each viewer.
May my paintings be a mirror, a reflection of your universal light, your human essence, and your timeless divinity.

VISIONS OF A NEW TOMORROW:
Needless to say, we are living in a very exciting time unprecedented in human civilization. Seven billion people currently live together on planet Earth and new challenges emerge daily on handling all the issues that arise with such a vast and diverse population. It is not difficult to see that our civilization as a whole is on a path towards its own demise with its uncontrolled polluting, rampant warring, unbalanced distribution of resources, and overall disharmony in relationship with each other and nature.
We stand at a crossroads, a precipice, and are poised to make a major choice as a whole which will greatly determine our futures for ourselves and our offspring. It is our responsibility as humans to shift our relationship with the spirit of nature and restore our connectedness with all that is before we move beyond the point of no return and ensure our own destruction. This shift needs to occur within, deep within our consciousness, so that it can permeate throughout our bodies into our behaviors and life patterns so that the collective may be restored as it once was, in true resonance with the rest of life on this planet and the rest of life in the universe.
I have discovered that the arts are perhaps the most powerful tool towards this goal. I have been deeply inspired by the creative offerings of others, through music, painting, dance, as well as by the art that surrounds us all the time in the form of forests, beaches, mountains, and rivers. Through the inspiration gathered from all these sources, I myself have developed the means to channel the current into art in the form of paintings and sculptural installation. The intention embedded within these works is to assist in the catalyzation of one’s core connection with the source, that which connects us all, to heal the schism between ourselves as humans and the world around us.
Our strongest resource is inspiration, and through this means we have the power and ability to steer our society towards the path of love, beauty, and peaceful harmony which will ensure our surthrival on this wonderful planet we are so blessed to live upon.
I have been playing with nature ever since I was a small child. I have always had a fascination for the natural world, creating creatures and stories from my imagination with a flower, seed pod, or random leaf. That playful nature has continued to evolve in my artwork. I graduated from Texas A&M with degrees in Biology and Psychology and was accepted to Penn State Medical School, but I decided to follow my creative instincts instead.
I have developed many different styles of expression including oil and stain painting, digital art, photography, and animation. Although the style of each medium is different, there is a singular vision that runs through all of them: my fascination and appreciation for the patterns and forms of the natural world. I experiment with finding images within the grain of a piece of wood, mimicking the perfect curves of a flower or human body, capturing the minute beauty of a dried up leaf, or turning a plant into some fantastical creature.
My current work involves mixing all of my mediums together in a continuous experiment and evolution of my work. I combine stained wood with digital artwork or photography, then proceed to paint over the images with oil paint or gold leaf, to achieve a truly sublime image.
I now live and work in Austin, TX. I regularly have gallery exhibitions showcasing my paintings, photographs, and digital artwork. I travel extensively for exhibitions, especially during the summer months, showing my work at festivals and galleries on the west coast.

With her imagery, Ishka reveals a world of the eternal Beauty that is all things. A river of elementals, cosmic beings, and magical beasts swirl together in one great flood of light and shadow, emanating the shapes and colors illuminated within the Beloveds kaleidoscope. With every turning of the wheel, an ever-changing cycle of Life appears. Dawn spills into the night sky, a blossom falls as a cherry grows; and the movement in our mind trickles down into a land where thoughts kneel before a pool of peaceful waters, watching silently, as Spirit emerges from the depths.
Ishka was born in 1982, and grew up on a ranch atop the rolling hills of northern California. She started drawing as soon as she could pick up a pencil, and received significant artistic instruction and encouragement from her mother and father. She earned a Professional B.A. in Architecture, but promptly set her course for a career as an artist upon graduation. Since then, Ishka has travelled across the U.S. and abroad, expanding her worldview, and using every opportunity available to absorb spiritual guidance and inspiration for her creations. Her work is primarily featured in various private collections, galleries, gift shops, cafes, and sacred art and music festivals along the west coast.

THE ART OF LUKE BROWN by Paul Levy
Luke Browns visionary art is an open portal into the higher-dimensions of our being. Riding on the wings of the creative imagination, Luke is being dreamed up as a medium, oracle and amplifier for a deeper process of awakening that is unfolding in the collective mind-field of our species. In creatively giving such unique and vivid shape and form to his inner experience, which is to say himself, Luke is stepping into the archetypal role of shaman and healer for the community at large, which in this case is the whole human species. In being in-formed by and creatively translating the deeper transpersonal energies that are pulsing through him into a communicable language, Luke taps into forms, vibrations and realizations that exist in the formless, synchronic, archetypal dimension of consciousness itself. This is a dimension existing outside of time: which, like hidden treasures of the soul, are waiting to be discovered, formulated and brought forth so as to be rendered into visible form at the right moment in time. Lukes creative visions are like healing enzymes, or time-release multi-vitamins that the underlying unified and unifying field of the divine, cosmic imagination organically secretes when inspiration is needed in our world. His creative spirit is giving voice to and answering the call of the deeper spirit of our time, while being, at the same time, the spirit which in-forms all times. Lukes art is a materialization in the third dimension of a sacred liturgy, an alchemical holy and whole-making ritual in which consciousness is explicating and expanding itself in-form and time. His visionary art simultaneously reflects and catalytically effects an expansion of consciousness throughout the underlying field of the collective unconscious. A form of mystical activism, Lukes work is an example, in full-bodied form, of how we can conspire: to breathe together, so as to co-inspire each other. Lukes creative imagination truly sparks our own, which is to say that appreciating the creative spirit that moves through him is to appreciate, access, and en-liven our own.
A genuine spiritual practice made material, Lukes art co-joins the opposites of spirit and matter in such a way that matter has become animated with spirit and spirit has materialized in shape, form and living color. Re-creating, transfiguring and healing himself through his creative process, Lukes work becomes imbued, encoded and empowered with this very same trance-forming, trance-sending and transformative energy. Because Luke is making of his art a sacred, higher-dimensional form of worship and communion with the universe and himself, and his work becomes a living receptacle of and testament to this experience of awakening, making this experience of transcendence openly available to all of us in an act of living transmission. Lukes creative works are timeless and magical art-i-facts from the other side, symbolic messages from beyond time and space and outside the conceptual mind, acting like transducers of the semantic, symbolic power encoded in the human psyche. To say this differently, the art of Luke Brown by-passes the mind and speaks directly to the heart and soul of humanity itself, where it touches and activates something deep within us. Psycho-activating beyond belief, Lukes art activates the psyche and stimulates our own dreaming imagination, a direct experience which, nonlocally speaking, leaves no one unchanged.
The epic drama of life, death, war, peace and the inalienable right to choose is depicted in a huge panorama.
Refugees climb out of a war zone, a pioneer comes to a graffiti wall where the choices are scratched out.
We all want to live in peace but somehow many are attracted to values that are so dissimilar, war seems to be the only option for a humanity gone berserk.
The pioneers and refugees make it to a new world of awakened consciousness. Ive always been interested in weird stuff. I was elated to discover that through the use of a pencil I could create my own universe, if only on paper. I was lucky enough to encounter some ancient wisdom from India while a youngster, and so I learned to focus my creative ability on what I do best, and to work for the enlightenment of all.
My art tends to be somewhat narrative- I like to tell a story or show a state of emotion or consciousness with my images. I often begin with some sort of idea or theme. This theme might be suggested by anything, or may just drift into consciousness during my day. I am often asked if I receive these images while dreaming asleep.
Sometimes they do come in dreams, but usually they are floating around in my mind, just waiting to be noticed.
While I tend to be a down-to-earth person, when aspiring to creativity, I begin by looking deeply within myself, and seek to express what I may find there. My sincere wish is to tap into the Divine Source of Being, to Consciousness, to Spirit, or whatever you may call it-, that place where existence comes from, and to bring into visual reality images manifesting the knowledge revealed while in this presence. Strangely enough, I have discovered that the more intensely personal my vision is, the more universal its message when presented to the world.
I believe that art can have the ability to catalyze social and cultural changes. Art has the magical power to evoke emotional as well as intellectual thinking. Realizing this, my desire as an artist is to create compelling images of beauty and power that serve to promote our Conscious Evolution as human beings, and to show us how to live in a peaceful world. To this end I like to explore and present images with themes of Awakening Consciousness, Divine Sexuality, Political Realities and Living in Harmony with Nature.
The Visionary Eroticism and Political Satire Art of Mark Henson.
Commentary by Monti Moore
Marks sense of eroticism expresses itself in a less voyeuristic and more spiritual way than most art associated with human passion. He is more interested in the merging of souls than the merging of organs.
It is his lifetime self-ordained duty to create a body of work that is filled with positive imagery surrounding lovemaking in a culture where sex is often associated with exploitation, violence and abuse. He sees the merging of souls as the manifestation of the cosmic design inherent in all living things.
He calls upon our divinity as natural sensual beings in harmony with our environment by depicting lovers in all forms. He defines lovemaking as a revelation more than a thrill, respectful of the gentle interplay when all creatures are in harmony, including the elements associated with death and the infinite.
In his vibrant colored oil paintings he delights in emulating the divine by bringing something out of nothing into its own sense of existence. Through these images the deepest parts of our collective soul are delivered visually imbued with the core of creation and the love of humanity. Mark views eroticism and the sex ritual as a natural and exalted state of consciousness.
Mark also paints dark side of humanity in his political satires. They are timely icons of universal fear and global concern. We are surrounded by negative input by mass media. The so-called war between the sexes plays an immense role in forming the patterns of our social interactions. How do we depict love when the most truthful loving acts are often considered evil or pornographic by politicians and religious fanatics? Yet, images of war, competition, attempts at control over each other fill our eyes.
Visionary art is just a label that might be a bit limiting to soul expressions that are so limitless. Something is clear here though, we are bringing forward new images of human experiences beyond the mundane senses. This is important in a time where if we dont evolve to wiser beings we will not continue to rock on planet earth. Though we artists each have a particular flavor, mesage, approach, cultural influence and mad style, we are united in the intention of trying to heal the world with positive evolutionary blueprints. I want to contribute with my grain of sand as well. Deal with my human imperfections by facing my demons and manifesting the higher consciousness that is chilling in my forehead all along. Either way, life is a blessing and I’m having a killer time, so I give thanx!!
I am a Chilean-born artist who has researched the Mesoamerican, Andean and Amazon cultures for over 20 years, and I have been channeling this art through Sacred Power Plants. These paintings reflect the traditions of ancient rituals, which invoke the ancestral memory of the universal soul.
Sacred plants are entities of a female nature, and considered by the sages of these cultures as spiritual allies. The substances within these plants cause in-formation currents to pass through the body, which then arouses and resonates with a cosmic awakening. These are intimately related to the procreation of life on this planet, and they bring light and love.
I have attempted to recored these visions into my paintings, and they express the journey of the soul in all its vital cycles: birth, death, the celebration of life, and the transcendence to planes of ascension and liberation.
This visionary art is a form of darshan, because the person who contemplates the painting receives a blessing. The observer becomes the subject. There is a universal resonance with the human experience. I am expressing to something profoundly intimate and personal in this art, but in a universal way that we have all experienced.
Sacred medicinal plants act as a meditative state that stills the minds, so as to connect us with reality in all of its realms, taking us away from linear time and putting us in touch with multidi-mensionality.
It is my intention to deliver, through these forms and colors, a timeless and sacred message which will remain in the eye of the beholder as a unique and non-repeatable experience. This sacred art is a profound meditative experience and mystical opening.

Michael is at the forefront of a resurgent creative wave that draws its inspiration not just from art theory and intellectual ideas but also from the basic principles of what it is to lead a healthy and vibrant life. His spirited and vivacious artwork falls in step with a long tradition of artists who base their work on their interpretive visions. His paintings, with their imaginative wonder and deeper spiritual underpinnings, reference ancient traditions, modern artistic explorations, and contemporary themes.
Michaels artwork follows in the footsteps of the Symbolist movement of the late 1800s as it progressed through the Modern Art movements of the early 1900s. His work is as much inspired by Futurism, Impressionism, and Abstract Artists as it is by the Surrealists and the Fantastic Realists. From Wassily Kandinskys intuitive balance of line and color to the bold movements of Umberto Boccioni to the psychologically deductive landscapes of Salvador Dali, the elements of the past inform Michaels art and provide a groundwork to build upon. Hs is inspired by the teachings of the many great artists of the past and his work helps to continue a living artistic lineage and narrative and adds a very present spiritual component to this artistic vision.
Passionate and serene at once, Michael Divines images speak with a universal language of beauty that anyone can understand and relate to. Drawing upon his visions and experiences, his work explores the inner worlds of the psyche and the heart. He translates this experience into breathtakingly sublime imagery that illustrates the journey of growth and transcendence through the inescapable phenomenon of human existence and conditioning.
My intention has always been to heal and to dream into reality the potential perfection of the human race and to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are all connected to a spiritual source of energy in an ever expanding and evolving universe. My pieces are prayers for the creation of a world where everyone’s basic needs of food, water, shelter, medicine, and love are met so that we may evolve into a heavenly holy happy healthy humanity.
In my art works, I am definitely aiming to show people a vision for a new world beyond our current world. I see the true reality we are evolving toward as one in which our highest potentials are fulfilled. Love, creativity, technology, relationships to each other and Nature; all blossoming into triumphant glory. I work with bright colors, patterns, light, and images and forms that express feelings of happiness and excitement for life. I want my work to convey a sense of loving strength and faith that all is well, and we are protected by higher forces, even in our darkest times.
Adam Scott Miller, an acute lifelong visionary artist from the U.S., has come through art academia with a BFA in Illustration from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a MFA in Painting from the Massachusetts College of Art. Throughout, he has integrated key principles of insight from art, science, and mysticism towards the road less-traveled of honest devotion to limitless growth and dilating creativity. Adam’s paintings are praised globally for their transcendetail and the elegant envisioning of reality as emergent from the unified-field ecology of energy.
The paintings of ASM are artifacts excavated from exploring the relationships between mystical personal experience and universally relevant concepts. Art is his tool for discovery, and a by-product of the experience of his consciousness. This integral creative work is how he processes his perceptions of the visible world and the energetic fields from which it blooms forth into new informed and numinously refined visions of symbiosis. The ‘numinous’ is characterized by the quintessential qualities of the sacred: mystery, awe, fascination, satisfaction, and inspiration. The art serves as a reflection of our context, and achieves its maximum potential in the intention to improve and benefit the whole. Art is at the heArt of eARTh.
He lives in Far Northeast Queensland, Australia amidst the most ancient rainforest on Earth with fiancee and fellow visionary artist Donna Raymond. They will open Australia’s 1st visionary art gallery ‘Infinitus Art’ during the Total Solar Eclipse of 2012, with which Infinitus Art is in direct earth-to-sky alignment.
Andrew Jones’ art is an amalgamation of the mystical human experience executed with the latest in mankind’s digital art capabilities. A pioneer in the field of electronically created art and education, Andrew continuously pushes through new boundaries. As a digital art evangelist he feels his mission is to inspire and increase the bandwidth of human creative potential.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had an interest in all things esoteric and mystical. The airbrush is the primary tool I use to externalize my imagination. And over the years, I’ve formed the idea of it as an alchemical instrument, using air to sublimate the liquid pigment into an exalted refined state. This symbolizing of the transmutation of matter into spirit (the alchemical “Sublimatio”) would define the underlying motif of my entire work. Inspired by reviving classical ideals, my imagery would elevate the Eternal Feminine with poetic devotion and evoke transfigurative themes such as creation, birth, death, rebirth, ascension and divine love into a rhythmic movement of a sacred eros, a sensual energy of the body as temple and vehicle of transformation.

Portland, Oregon, enrolled full time as a tattoo student.
Raul is an artist that has been inﬂuenced by the visionary surreal fantastic arts as well
as many of the Worlds countries & cultures that he has experienced in his travels.
“Expressing myself through Art enables my soul to be seen, reaching deep down into
my “True Essential Self “to shine my light & share that state of interconnectedness that
represents our evolving global consciousness. I meditate on global issues and I am
inspired to improve my life and that of my community to help manifest a better planet
where we can coexist in true sustainable abundance and synchronic harmony with each
other and nature, we are created therefore creative by nature.
Raul studied physiotherapy & Marine Biology and sailed the Caribbean doing coral reef
surveys for the Planetary Coral Reef Foundation while onboard the research vessel
“Heraclitus”. Later he worked in art galleries in Los Angeles & London, UK, which
inspired him to become an artist.
Previous to his arrival in Portland he lived in Vancouver, Canada for 15 years where he has expanded & reﬁned the exploration of the arts while working in the Film industry, decorating sets as a lead set dresser, sculptor & creating commissioned ﬁne art for movies for the last 15 years. Recently he also had the honor of painting a 16 ft. mandala on the ceiling of a Buddhist Temple in Richmond, Vancouver, BC. for the Canada Bodhi Dharma Society.

Creating art is as ancient as Humanity itself, this Planet is a manifestation of our collective imagination. “I love to speak the ancient visual language of painting & tattooing, allowing my body to become a vessel of creation to manifest a window into the soul and the imagination”. Much Love- Raul
‘Through my work I aim to shatter the ‘illusion of separation’,
to challenge the viewer to question, and evolve out of ignorance, conditioning and ingrained genetic habits. In life I strive to take responsibility for the effect of my existence, and through my actions and images, inspire others to think/dream beyond their immediate capacity.
Ultimately I seek to create portals that open to the infinite possibilities of being and expressing, so that we may remember and re-discover who we are, where we originate from and where we are headed. My aspiration is to paint messages, visions and narratives that communicate with an ‘older & wiser us’, awakening ancient memory; as well as the ‘present us’, that we may grow up and accept the responsibilities towards ourselves, each other and the rest of existence on this planet… now.”
