Category & Nomination

VISIONARY ART
Style
Visionary art is an artistic style based on a spontaneous depiction of what is seen in the altered state of consciousness, religious, meditative contemplation, trance, as well as flashbacks that arise after so-called "tripods" (psychedelic state) altered states of consciousness, characterized by a different perception and an intense process of awareness. English synonyms Visionary art: Visionary Art, Fantastic Realism, Imaginative Art, Mystical Art, Psychedelic Art.
Mystical symbolism
Style
Mystical symbolism is an artistic reflection of religious teachings, philosophical works, understatement and ambiguity of plots and their interpretations. The image is not a specific image, but utterances (even screaming) of the soul, mood, experiences, impressions. The predominance of the emotional experience of both the creator of creation and the viewer.
Cosmism
Style
Cosmism - man and mankind as elements, connected in a single whole with the cosmos, other worlds and dimensions, unknown states of mathematics. Interaction and coexistence of realities, the beauty of non-worlds. Abstract categories and concepts as a theme for creative self-expression: spiritual search, the flow of time, thought and its movements.
Fantastic realism
Style
Fanstastic realism - as the herald of Visionary art, the combination of a realistic style of painting, content and fantastic motives, the author's notions of phenomena beyond the limits of sensory experience.
Magical realism
Style
Magic realism is a combination of a realistic picture of the world and magical elements, a game with eyesight. Combination of photographic accuracy and paradox.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin:
 
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin - French idealist philosopher and Jesuit priest
 

Visionary Art attracts the attention of both creators and viewers all around the world. ts popularity is so broad that this style can rightly be considered a new worldwide phenomenon. Despite the modern-sounding name, it reflects the artist's original interest in the inner world, where fantasy, not reality, becomes the source of creativity. Art is always an attempt to look inside yourself, to know yourself, your place, in a sense «draw a soul».

Visionary Art is a path of feelings, not of reason. Spontaneous, not controlled by the will or a certain plan an image of the author's inner world, fantastic worlds and creatures. The development of this style goes in parallel with the spread of eastern spiritual practices (for example, yoga), a technique of penetrating into the depths of the subconscious, an interest in the pagan and pre-literate past of peoples.
According to the French artist L. Caruana (Laurence Caruana), Visionary Art is what merge art, myth and dreams. Like the ancient writings, it is a lost language, to be deciphered by everyone alone. The artist-visionary uses all means available to him to show what is beyond the boundaries of vision. In fact, he draws something that is invisible. The source of experience for the artist - dreams, a state of trance, madness, meditation. Part of the artists-visionaries consciously resorts to the use of entheogens (substances to achieve an altered state of consciousness), realizing their danger to themselves. But at the moment this practice is not generally accepted.

Can not be failed to note masterly craftsmanship and technical perfection of the masters. Visionary art, true Visionary art is the highest level of professionalism, possession of pictorial techniques and tradition.

The general idea of artists Visionary Art – attitude to painting as an instrument through which the "inner landscape" (Martin Hoffman) is reflected, thus, art becomes not a goal, but a means on the way to self-knowledge, self-improvement. Pictures are some kind of portals, "which will open up infinite possibilities for existence and self-expression. Thanks to him, we will remember and rediscover our past, who we are, where our life began and where we are going "(Amanda Sage).
Artists preach the unity of mankind, the desire to feel his family, which means to realize his shared responsibility for his future.
