Visionary Art is an artistic movement that reflects the artist’s original interest in the inner world, where fantasy rather than reality becomes the source of creativity. The style is characterized by spontaneous depictions of altered consciousness, religious, meditative contemplation, trance, and flashbacks. The artists of Visionary Art use all means available to them to show what lies beyond the boundaries of vision. They draw what is invisible, and the source of their experience is dreams, trance states, madness, and meditation.
The development of this style goes hand in hand with the spread of Eastern spiritual practices, techniques of penetrating into the depths of the subconscious, and interest in the pagan and pre-written past of nations. The general idea of the artists of Visionary Art is the attitude to painting as a tool, through which the “inner landscape” is reflected. Paintings are some kind of portals, “which will open up infinite possibilities of existence and self-expression.”
Vladimir Shmoylov is a virtuoso artist whose technical perfection and mastery of painting techniques are unmatched. He believes that art is a means on the way to self-knowledge and self-improvement. His paintings are portals that open up infinite possibilities of existence and self-expression.
The Visionary Art Award is an international award that recognizes outstanding artists who have made significant contributions to the development of Visionary Art.
