Visionary Art Series - Luke Brown
Every week we will present one visionary artist and their work. To start out, we‘ll explore the fantastic visionary art of Luke Brown and his entheogenic dreamscapes.
Visionary art is nothing new, in fact, it‘s an expression that dates back hundreds of years. The earliest western artist known for his visionary paintings is Hieronymus Bosch, who lived in the 15th century. But fantastic paintings from that period were largely influenced by religious imagery and christian doctrine - in stark contrast to the visionary art from today. The visionary art we witness sprouting up in recent years is more accurately described as psychedelic visionary art, as substances such as DMT, Ayahusca and Magic Mushrooms are often the inspiring force behind the pictures.
One emerging artist who has brought himself to the forefront of the visionary style is Luke Brown. His paintings are a beautiful combination of traditional and digital methods of creation, manifesting in painting the extraordinary entheogenic dimensions.
Luke Brown describes himself as an explorer, and part of a new generation of visionary artists, changing the way we view culture and its ties. Most of his works revolve around lucidity and visions obtained through dreaming and sacred medicine plants. They have been the source of his creativity, guiding him in is visionary quest for enlightenment – which are reflected in the symmetries and organic, moving surfaces of his work. Digital media allows Brown to depict his art with incredible detail, closely reflecting the movements of his mind.
Recently, Brown has had his work displayed internationally alongside such visionary heavy weights as Alex Grey, HR Giger, Ernst Fuchs and Robert Venosa.
