Psychedelic Art






I've always thought the images produced in this form of art are fascinating because of the amazing creativity and imagination involved. Everyone has a different perception of what is going on or what is supposedly symbolized in the artwork.


What do you see? Random colors or random unconnected images or maybe just a mess and splashes of color here and there?

Some art has humor within it for some viewers. That same humor might not be seen by those who choose not to see it. But it's all a matter of perception and opinion.


What is this? What is happening here? You choose what you want to see.

Pretty wild shit going on with this one. But that's just my opinion. Do you have an opinion?


A world of possibilities await everyone, both in art and in life. Some wait too long, thinking those possibilities will come to them, while others rush forward, without a thought. Then there are those who quietly observe and study before making their opinions or stepping toward those possibilities and grasping them with either hands or their minds.

Who is to say what is right, wrong, familiar or unfamiliar, beautiful or distasteful, moral or immoral? The answer is: You are the one to say.

I love it. My favorites are Larry Carlson and Alex Grey.

Hi Kelly,
Fascinating and yes very visual topic. Of course, like any form of art, it's subject to our perceptions and interpretations. I do like this kind of stuff. Maybe not on my walls, but I like it nonetheless.
Anyway, the naked babe in the top photo has put me right off my thinking process. See you dude, I'm off to fantasy land...:-)

THE SNEE said...

Way to highlight creative souls Kelly! It's easy to get lost in all of them!

middle child said...

These are cool because you can look and look and still not really "see" everything.

Like much in life, it's all subject to our perception.

Interesting pieces of art :)

LilPixi said...

I heart psychedelic art.

I fart psychedelic art.

I love art in general.

In the first one, I see more going on than I can make sense of, which is the thing about psychedelic art.

The Jerry one is just whackin' me out for many reasons.

2nd to last one seems like it focuses on chakras. It's really cool.

Last one has always been a favorite of mine.

Is the naked woman being tortured in the first picture? I am opposed to such practices unless the woman is enjoying it. The last picture gets my vote for having no demons or ugly fuckers in it.

Kelly said...

Static- I like their work, too. Sometime this art can draw you in, if it is done well enough. I think it takes a very creative mind. Take care, dude.

Kelly said...

klahanie- You got that right, man. It truly is all in the eye of the beholder. we all see what we want to see. I love this type of art, too. I've got a couple psychedelic posters hanging up in my computer room, here. I would have more here and there throughout my place but I've got shitloads of other pics and art covering all my walls now. Ha ha. My wife digs American Indian paintings, especially.

Have fun with the naked babe in Fantasy Land. Don't let her sneak away with your wallet while you're asleep. Take care, Gary, mi amigo.

Kelly said...

THE SNEE- The more positive creativity and open-mindedness, the better, I always say. And yeah, it is easy to get lost in them. Take care, Rebecca. Stay warm.

Kelly said...

middle child- It's so true what you say. I think if people take a good look at a lot of this art, they would find joy in seeing things they wouldn't have seen before with just a glance. Take care, middle child.

Kelly said...

Wendy aka Quillfeather- I agree with both statements you made. I think people will see what they want to see in art and in life. Take good care, Wendy and thanks for visiting my blog. Don't be a stranger. :-)

Kelly said...

LilPixi- Hell, you probably belch and poop art, too. Hahaha. I figured you were pretty artsy. I know how you feel about it (art). I love it, too. I'm the same way. Even as a kid and in high school, I was always drawing or creating stuff- from pottery to painting. These days, I just like looking at it and appreciating it.

Yeah, the first one is very complex. I think they're worshiping Jerry Garcia in the second. I didn't connect chakras to the second last one. I don't know enough about the subject. Glad you enjoyed them, LilPixi. Have a great day!

Kelly said...

Gorilla Bananas- I think she's just bound up, waiting for you to do with her as you wish. Go easy on her. It's her first time, you lusty simian, you.

The Wolf said...

Okay here is what I see in those pictures

1.Alien turkey from another dimension peeing in a lake

2. Demonic deer shooting lasers out of their eyes to kill smurfs

3.Kermit the frog giving a hand job for crack

4. Satan

5. Satan

6. I think it's Satan

Kelly said...

The Wolf- Kermit giving a hand job for crack? LMAO big time. Yes, of course, the last 3 are of Satan. Who else could it be but the Master of Chuckles & Sorrow. Weeeeeee!

Lana Gramlich said...

I just love the pretty colors, personally. ;) *L*

Kelly said...

Lana- I know what you mean. ;)

Rafael Clarkstein said...

Once I took shit on canvas. The people of Kazakhstan call it art. I don't know what to call it, so I call it Shit on Canvas.

Kelly said...

Rafael Clarkstein- Sounds catchy. I once fapped and spewed in the cake batter before baking a cake for a friend. Afterwards, I put frosting and candles on it. Not sure what to call my creation, I finally named it "Happy Birthday, Motherfucker"

Greg said...

Hey Kelly, artwork is a matter of perception and interpretation, as my wife is an artist I know this too well.

These pictures have alot going on in them and they sort of draw you into look at what's going on. I like that.

Kelly said...

Greg- I certainly agree with you on that. Interesting that your wife is an artist. That's cool. My wife is good with numbers. I'm the artsy one of the two of us.

Yeah, they do draw you in. I think the best art does that to people. Take care, dude.

Rafael Clarkstein said...

Kelly, is this how all Americans treat friends? I think I don't like this very much.

Kelly said...

Rafael- Yeah, but gift giving is just so mundane. This method shows you're willing to go the extra mile and that you care (a lot).

Because that's what friends are fooorrr. Sing along now!
