Bernart Amygdalah is the artist responsible for the excellent visionary psychedelic images previously used on several magazine covers and various backgrounds including those on this website.
We asked him to tell us a bit about himself:
I was born in Germany in 1963 and was very lucky to spend my youth in the later Hippie-era. Music painting and any kind of mysticism have always been my interests. After years of practicing music, painting and a training to a sculptor, I focused on digital image editing. Now I got the possibility to create images, that I couldn’t manage with hand painting. Inspirations for my images are all world religions, shamanism and the ornamental composition. My tools are Adobe Photoshop, a lot of filters and the world of the fractals. I work in several layers and assemble my artworks out of many fragments. My vision is, to let the invisible appear visible and to break the borders between people. People who influenced me where Ernst Fuchs, Alex Grey, Luke Brown, Marti Klarwein and Robert Venosa.
