Mushroom Cover by Andrew Gonzalez

Mushroom Cover by Andrew Gonzalez

Andrew Gonzalez, the painter of this mushroom cover, is one of the ten great artists who teach at the recently founded new Academy of Visionary Arts in Vienna – since September 2013 a new global hub for art students.

Andrew describes his pictures as “mystical love poems to the soul”. And he is one of the great artists whose entheogenic experiences led to the fascinating master pieces of visionary art (www.sublimatrix.com).

Visionary Art, as Laurence Caruana, the new Academy Director, puts it, “is a contemporary sacred art to awaken people to their inner divinity to make them heal themselves and the planet alike”. Western humanist traditions get together with the (sacred) hieratic art, merging sacred geometry from ancient western cultures with the cultural codes of Mayas, Indians, Buddhists and tribal societies.
Psychedelic drugs play an important role in this kind of art but they are not a necessity. “They open doors but you have to walk through the door yourself”, as Laurence said. Also Yoga, meditation, breathing, vivation or dreams are ways to get in touch with your inner self.
The newly founded Academy has the most renowned painters and teachers everybody knows from the art galleries of Boom, Ozora or Burning Man – Alex Grey, Amanda Sage, H. R. Giger, Martina Hoffmann and also their teachers such as the phantastic realists Ernst Fuchs and Arik Brauer.
Currently the Academy is financed by the tuition fees of the students but in the future Laurence wants to reach a state where students get paid to study there. He does not want to take public subsidies or private money but wants to establish a sustainable organism that could live in Boulder, Paris, London or elsewhere in the world too. Vienna was chosen as the location for the Academy because a convergence of artists like Amanda Sage, Ernst Fuchs and the beautiful Palais Palffy (www.palais-palffy.at) with the “Phantastenmuseum” offered a safe space.

•ALLOWING YOUR INNER VISIONARY TO SHINE•
This weekends workshop with @_.kobrin._ is sure to offer deep healing around your inner dialogue and self empowerment as an artist!
Jake wants to remind you that there is nothing to do, there is nothing to become; that creativity is as fundamental to your being as breathing. You already are the visionary you wish to be, if you can allow yourself to move past your blocks and let the visionary inside of you shine through!
In this workshop Jake will teach essential techniques and tools as well as meditations and inner processes that students can use to clarify what they see in their minds eye and how to translate it into a work of art. This workshop is suitable for artists of all levels!




Materials Required:
Pencil and piece of paper - can also work with digital drawing materials, or use acrylics or other painting mediums.




TIME:
Sydney (AEST): 10 AM - 1 PM (June 7)
Bali (WITA) : 8 AM - 11 AM (June 7)
Vienna (CET): 2 AM - 5 AM (June 7)
New York (EDT): 8 PM - 11 PM (June 6)
L.A. (PDT): 5 PM - 8 PM (June 6)

This workshop series is donation based. It was created as a fundraiser to support the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art, who have permanently closed their doors in response to the global pandemic. We found this to be a unique opportunity to share some of the offerings that only students who traveled to Vienna were previously able to experience.



Our suggested donation is 30 Euros, however all offerings are graciously accepted.
If you find it within your means, please send your donations via PayPal :
