The avatar for the gallery is a work by
Abdul Mati Klarwein

Christian De Boeck, administering the Visionary Art Gallery on Facebook had done an exemplary job of rallying together like-minded artists from around the globe, many of which had been friends for decades.

I am honoured to have been named co-administrator of the gallery, together with Laurence Caruana, Laurie Lipton, Robert Venosa and Oleg Korolev .

WHAT IS VISIONARY ART?

Christian De Boeck posted under the discussion topic What is Visonary Art, Science, Engineering, Technology? (Post #5) an interesting exchange of letters (almost a decade ago) between himself and Alex Grey.

Many thanks Otto!

I really appreciate your helping spread the word and it's great to have you as a new "brother in arms" and friend.

I greatly admire your own work - especially your exquisite drawings – which, besides exciting my senses, invoke nostalgic memories. They are so reminiscent of the early work of the artists of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism that they take me back and induce reminiscences of the early 60’s when I first discovered Ernst Fuchs and the Vienna School through the magazine “Alte und Moderne Kunst” in the library of the Boymans van Beuning Museum in Rotterdam, Holland, when I lived there as a teenager from 1959-1969.

Thank you so much for your kind support and helping reinvigorate my quest, dream and vision to make some small contribution to making our kind of art better known to a wider public.
