Art of the Soul
Welcome to Ayahuasca Artwork
Our aim is to bring the artwork of some of Peru's best visionary artists to a wider audience.
This website will act as both a showcase for visionary ayahuasca art in our gallery and we will also be selling some artwork as canvas prints so that you can enjoy it in your own home.
What is Visionary Art?
"Visionary art is art that purports to transcend the physical world and portray a wider vision of awareness including spiritual or mystical themes, or is based in such experiences." – Alex Grey
Throughout history, artists have explored altered states of consciousness and used those experiences to create their work. The paleolithic wall paintings in the caves of Lascaux, France are perhaps the most ancient examples we know of. It was here that ancient shamans captured the images of sacred animals.
In modern times most visionary art has been inspired from visionary states induced by the use of psychoactive substances. This includes LSD, mescaline, DMT, psilocybin and ayahuasca.
The use of these substances can allow people to access alternate realities and higher dimensions and provide glimpses of infinite beauty.
Some would say that these mystical experiences are humanities most direct contact with God and are ultimately the creative source of all sacred art and wisdom traditions.
For many people, Visionary Art acts as a guide for understanding and integrating experiences of expanded awareness. The paintings become maps of the realms we touch through mystical union.
