    I've read his book, what is really interesting is that if you believe it he had no formal anatomy studies whatsoever and basically had visions of his entire first series of paintings while on acid. I tend to believe this. One of the paintings not pictured here depicts some sort of strange afterlife that I've actually experienced before while tripping.

    Unlike many of the "psychedelic" paintings of seen, his tend to closely mimic many visual effects of LSD and ayahuasca.

    Try to keep your "E-Beef" down to a minimum, it doesnt have anything to do with this thread.
