A Visionary Art workshop and Ayahuasca Retreat in the Amazon Rainforest

Pablo Amaringo is one of the world’s great visionary artists. He is renowned for his highly complex, colourful and intricate paintings inspired by his visions from when he was an Ayahuasca shaman. He trained as a curandero or healer in the Amazon, healing himself and others from the age of ten, but gave this up in 1977 to become a full-time painter and art teacher at the Usko-Ayar School of Amazonian Art which he founded. His book, Ayahuasca Visions: The Religious Iconography of a Peruvian Shaman, co-authored with Luis Eduardo Luna, brought his work and the rich mythology of the Amazon to a wide public in the West.

    Very nice artwork indeed, i would really love to know the deep meaning of this art, since this is inspired of his visions and i do know that every detail of it has a significance. It’s a magnificent work of art i must say.
