Another recent art find has been the work of Isaac Abrams. I was very pleased to run across Isaac's website as I find his flowing, bubbly psychedelic artwork to be somewhat similar to my own work at times. Mind you, Isaac is a far better painter than I could hope to be at the moment 8)
Isaac was born and raised in the New York area. He is a self-taught artist with an academic background in literature, history, science and psychology. He founded the first gallery of Psychedelic Art in the world in 1965.
He began working as a self-taught painter in the beginning of 1966 and then worked as a sculptor in the 1970's. During the 1980s he also began extensive work as an animation artist.
Abrams was the former owner of Coda Gallery. The Coda Gallery was noted for its introduction of Psychedelic Art into the mainstream of American media consciousness. He studied in Austria under the tutelage of Ernst Fuchs whose school and method of painting runs in an unbroken line of students and teachers from Albrecht Durer to the present.
He begins his work with a series of loosely conceived juxtapositions and then discovers in those juxtapositions the metaphysical and cosmic concepts which are so often expressed in his art. Right on !
