MAPS Bulletin Vol XXI No 3: Winter 2011 - Front Cover Image - Psychedelic Art - “Crystalavi,” Oil on Canvas Painting by by Robert Venosa (1976).
40” x 32” / 100 x 80 cm.

Crystalavi was originally entitled “Apotheosis of the Birds” when painted in 1976. It is part of the classic early Venosa period which established his signature style. Most of these works were primarily created in shades of blue and/or earth tones which reflect the colors of his Mediterranean home at the time, Cadaqués, Spain. While deeply immersed in art, spiritual studies, and meditation during this time, Robert Venosa produced work distinguished by its crystalline forms and ethereal, cosmic content. This piece was first reproduced in his monograph Mana’s Mana, Big O publishing, London, 1978.
MAPS Bulletin Vol XXI No 3: Winter 2011 - Back Cover Image - Psychedelic Art - “Salsify”, Limited Edition Chromogenic Development Print by by Robert Buelteman (2006).

Made while in residence at the Santa Fe Institute
Robert Buelteman is a celebrated fine art photographer whose works connect viewer to subject in an emotionally transcendent manner consistent with the traditions of Eastern wisdom and Western revelation. Working exclusively with large sheets of photographic film, the living plant is used as a filter through which high-voltage electricity and fiber-optically- delivered light are passed. The resulting images serve as window on the mystery that life is, and have been compared with pictures of our universe made by the Hubble telescope.

MAPS Bulletin Vol XXI No 3: Winter 2011 - Inside Front Cover Image - Psychedelic Art - 2010 Psychedelic Science Mural by Multiple (Mark Henson, Amanda Sage, Michael Divine, Krystal Smith, and Jeremiah Allen Welch)
In April 2010, our Psychedelic Science in the 21st Century conference brought together members of the MAPS community in an unprecedented show of support. Medical professionals, therapists, scientists, and artists all contributed their unique talents to the event, creating a conference unlike any other. In honor of the artists’ efforts and the collaborative energy of the event, MAPS has produced a Limited Edition Series of the mural painted live during the weekend.
