42 Modern Psychedelic Visionary Artists You Need To Know

"The world of psychedelic art has been around for as long as people have been getting high and picking up paintbrushes. Many believe it reached it's popular peak in the late 60's when the hippy movement and flower power was all the go. I guess that is a fair argument. That's not to say that psychedelic and visionary art isn't popular anymore. Far from it - there are thousands of psychedelic and visionary artists around the globe who are creating amazing images using a whole range of interesting techniques.

Here I would like to present what I believe are some  of the leading psychedelic and visionary artists working in the field today. Some of these artists are so technically brilliant in their usage of digital processes that it makes my mind boggle as to how they do it. A number of these names will be instantly familiar to some of you such as artists Alex Grey and Martina Hoffmann while others might be lesser well known so take the time to follow up on them and visit their websites for some amazing visions of the inner mind.

Wow, these pieces are eye-popping. I saw a lot of art like this in the 60s, but these artists have taken it to a whole new level of visionary!

I also associate this sort of art with the 60's but I guess it can come from any era. It's easy to get stuck thinking in a certain way. Thanks for the link.
