Destiny Man

This is my tribute to the mysterious world of remote viewing. Little is known about people with this ability or their endeavours. Remote viewers have been among us since ancient times; their ability has been used by men for such things as predicting a good hunt in pre-historic times (shamans) to locate spies during the cold war (psychic spies of the CIA).

There are many theories about how this people acquire this amazing skill: some say it's a natural gift, other have suggested it's something you can actually train and develop; that in fact any of us have the ability in our frontal lobe; it's just a matter of exercise. It has been even suggested you can awake remote viewing abilities with hallucinogens such as "Haiawaska" or "San Pedro" like Shamans have been doing for millennia.

It is a subject I find extremely interesting and I can't have enough of it... If you're interested, you can start by reading "Supernatural" by Graham Hancock.

I re-made this painting almost from scratch. I was never really satisfied with the original result.

The Anunnaki

Produced for the british band Parramon, "Dead People" is a concept album of mythic proportions. It tells the story of how The Anunnaki, a tyrannic race of reptilians from another planet, dominated the human race in a remote past. They were looked up as gods of course and pyramids were builded for them. There are many versions and theories about why they came; precious minerals, fuel, genetic experiments, even human flesh!   Look for it in the History Channel series "Ancient Aliens".

This is by far one of the most difficult and detailed digital painting I've ever made. I took me about five days just to compose and paint everything. But I previously spent about a week doing research in order to get everything right in it; destroyed buildings, symbolisms, ancient writing, dead trees and toombstones.

There are many symbolisms in this work... lets see how many you are able to spot.
