Phil Maggi - Blue FIelds in Paramount CD

OUT NOW on Idiosyncratics Records :
Phil Maggi - Blue FIelds in Paramount CD

Blue Fields in Paramount is a very personal and fascinating opus, a beautiful introduction to the style of this talented artist, that could be qualified as 'dark psychedelia for daydream believers'.
It has been mastered by James Plotkin (Khlyst, Khanate, Old, Phantom) and is out now as a limited to 300 copies ekopack release with a fantastic artwork by czech artist Jan Karpisek.


Denisa Krausova

In this case I don't want to speculate if the author's paintings are "spiritual" or not. Anyway artworks by Denisa Krausová (1981) are just excellent and getting better! No wonder that Denisa is receiving more and more public attention recently. After an exhibition with Lucie Ferliková in Divus Unit 30 in London there will be her one woman show in a prestigious gallery Ad Astra soon (opening on March 25th). Visit Denisa's websites: www.denisakrausova.net

Thangka Gallery

I've met my friend Pavel yesterday. He had a great news. :)
Pavel bought a very nice thangka from a buddhist monk Akka from Nepal who visited Brno recently.
See websites of him and his colleagues: www.thangkagallery.com
I like very much their charity project: www.dcwcnepal.org
The thangkas reminded me my diploma thesis which includes interpretation of the Wheel of Life. Today I will paint that on paper and place it on the wall above my painting easel. I believe it will bring more peace to the kitchen corner where I create my art.

Petr Pastrňák

Czech painter and visual artist Petr Pastrňák (1962) creates original paintings also considered as spiritual. Petr is concerned with meditation as well. Art is for him another way of exploring the inner space. His works are mainly abstract meditations as well as figurative. Visit his websites www.petrpastrnak.cz
