In this time when the technology has taken over and seems to live in a matrix, the role of art is basic to return to our nature.
Since the Middle Ages the human took inspiration from the dreams for try to escape from this dimension and bring up the Visionary Art.
In the last century this wave is taken up from other artistic currents as the Surrealism.
Today through many ways we can have the perception beyond our 5 senses, this ways included the meditation, the dreams, the shamanism, the holistic sciences, the sound vibrations…

In 2013, after an intense travel experience to several European music festivals, she started her first project by collecting all her unfinished ideas to create a series of psychedelic and visionary artworks. Her style is unique and, by its’ intense nature, touches parts of the self that were unfelt before.

to me, visionary art is about expressing something that not all people can see or feel or understand. My art is born from experiences, feelings, from the desire to manifest what’s inside every person and what is going on around us in my own special way. I do so by mixing an experience and the wisdom I’ve gained from it to create a clearer vision of the real world for everybody.

For her Visionary Art is a way to represent what the matter conceal, what our 5 sense can’t feel, the research of the true spirit of things.
The images of the figures are lightened until reaching immateriality, until the return to the origins of the universe, an act of striving for the ultimate goal of all things, without time and space.

Oscar William Money
Oscar W. Money is an European artist. He was born in Salerno, Italy, but with English father.
He attended at the liceo classico (classical high school) and liceo artistico (artistic high school).
Along these last years he improved his drawing technique and he started to experiment the oil colour technique on canvas on his own when he was home, and the golden ratio geometry, which is an important link of his artistic developement.
At the age of nineteen, in the 2010, since he lost a year already, he decided to quit with the high school and move to India, but eventually he only arrived in London, where he found his India somehow.
Thank to his father, he succeded to be included in a stage for an important London’s art gallery, the October Gallery in Old Gloucester Street, quite close to the British Museum; it was focused on trans-vangard art and it looked as posh as wild, in contact with the crowded city and the wild nature of the tribal enviorment it was guesting by. Oscar William could, in few months, collect loads of amazing experiences which increase his artistic landscape to a more vast view of reality; he met many of his most important teachers, mostly important Elizabeth Lalouschek, the artistic director, Phillip Nangle, his mbira music teacher and his next boss Gordon Campbell, a very rich man, founder of the Accademy of Everything his Possible. Thank to Gordon he could be part of an important exhibition in Paris in the 2011 about one of his best friends, the great Brion Gysin, at the Gallerie de France, Rue de la Verrerie. He met through Gordon a lot of interesting and important people, in London, Paris and Ireland, his homeplace. A big step back in the Beat Generation he can say.
During this period he started to create personal exhibitions in his hometown Salerno; it was a successful time for his career and he began to establish himself as a professional artist.
In the 2013, after his last exhibition he decided to move to London again, this time city by city. Completely in the red, moneyless, he became a squatter, and he dedicated several months to the anarchist movement of squatting and riqualification of buildings and lands. After great adventures he hich-hicked to Salerno to get graduateed, at the same high school he abandoned some years earlier, at the age of 23. During this period back home, he started to play mbira/karimba, to manage the olive oil production and to write his first book ‘Ipse Dixit’, although he kept on painting on canvas with more and more passion.
After his successful last exhibition in Palazzo Pinto, Salerno, along Gianni Paglioli, a very important astro-photographer, he decided to join the Academy of fine art in Rome where he is attempting at the sculpture course now. His wish is to improve more his ambition and perspective through the multi-disciplinar lifestyle he is experimenting and to give the benefits of these special attitudes.
His art is born from a path of life he is doing … We live in a great illusion, and what he feels he expresses it by painting …. When he painta he feels he is in the painting because it is an expression of us always .. It’s the most beautiful emotion that we terrestrial humans can perceive..
