Artists concept. Journey to Hyperspace:

This series visionary art represents the flight of the shaman's soul across the psychedelic vistas of Hyperspace to enable them to heal and learn. The images are a combination of macro and toy photography combined to create otherworldly panoramas that evoke the analogue visual effects of sci-fi cinema and illustration.


Colourful alien mycelium worlds reveal themselves to courageous adventurers who explore the furtherest reaches of conscious reality. The screen ratio of Cinemascope 2.20:1 was used to crop the photographic collage in reference not only to Stanley Kubrick's classic 2001: A Space Odyssey, but also the dimensions of the enigmatic black monoliths


The Leif Erikson

Not only the name of the Norse explorer but that of the golden submarine captained by Hagbard Celine and his band of anarcho-psychedelic resistance fighters, in Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea's seminal Illuminatus Trilogy novels.


 

Spaceship XIII

This spacecraft, a nod to classic sci-fi movies, carries the insignia no. 23, the holiest of numbers within Discordianism (2+3=5)


The Law of Fives states simply that: ALL THINGS HAPPEN IN FIVES, OR ARE DIVISIBLE BY OR ARE MULTIPLES OF FIVE, OR ARE SOMEHOW DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY APPROPRIATE TO 5.


WILL WRIGHT

Will Wright is a contemporary British artist, filmmaker and activist.

Growing up amongst his father's print business, ink was in his blood from a very early age: experimenting with letraset, markers and ink, as a child.

Influences such as 2000AD comic book, Trash VHS video tapes and Electro Hip Hop led Will on to directing music videos with notorious metal band Cradle of Filth, British action star Ed Skrein (Deadpool, Game of Thrones) and a host of UK talent. Art activism and esoteric study has led Will back to fine art with work that draws upon his wealth of experience.

His artwork incorporates symbolism derived from ancient spirituality, Northern European folklore and mythology within a distinctly urban context: Atomiser replaces spray can, tags become sigils and throw ups as shrines.
