Visionary Artist: Mugwort
It's a great honour to now introduce Mugwort as the first visionary art international guest for EFF2020, in his first tour to Australia!
Mugwort is a Canadian multimedia artist and designer whose prolific body of work evokes other-worldly, dream-like sensations that illuminate the imagination. His work represents an alchemical distillation of archetypal themes, the crystallisation of abstract sensations and ideals, and a visual narrative that is both impactful and transcendent. His inspirations include avant-garde aesthetics, eastern philosophies, the pursuit of elevated consciousness and dream states. As a self-taught digital artist who is continually engaged by the dynamic potential of digital media, his creative process is characterised by an unconventional synthesis of design methodologies and an array of cutting-edge technologies. Working in a multitude of mediums such as digital painting, illustration, graphic design, audio-visual performance, large-scale installation design and fashion design, he weaves his diverse artistic expressions into a cohesive and deeply captivating metaphysical experience. His work has spread organically to resonate on a global level and has been displayed at galleries and festivals across the world.
‘Mugwort Artemisia is an herb that has been used across the world for thousands of years for the enhancement of dream recollection, the bestowment of spiritual protection and its many profound healing properties. My work is intended to mirror these effects with creative expression; to inspire the imagination, nurture the spirit, and remind us of our infinite nature and potential.’
