This was my
masterpiece painting. It culminated over a decade of psychedelic art
work that I had done, not very many paintings but a lot of drawings.
The amazing thing about psychedelic art was that for the first time in
Western history, psychedelic art was being produced. Psychedelic art
had been produced in several ancient civilizations, notably the Tibet
Buddhist art work, the Indian temple bas-reliefs, and Mayan cartoons.
Psychedelic art remains the only art movement that bridges not only
cultures but times as well. It is ironic that the Psychedelic Art
Movement is the only art movement in the world that was and still is
stopped from public viewing due to the onus of illegal drugs. While we
psychedelic artists were bringing in a marvel of human imagination
bridging continents and eras, galleries were pushing Pop Art because
they didn't have to explain to their customers why their artists were
being sent away to prison for possession of mind-expanding drugs..If
only people knew how much mind-altering drugs played in the creation
of masterpieces the world takes for granted.
