EXPERIMENTAL INTERDISCIPLINARY ART MOVEMENT (2012-2016)


Out of a deep urge, observing the general world’s decline and the growing need to leave a trace though ArtArtpilgrims was born. Being an artist and a pilgrim seeking the quest of life since a revelation I had, aged four, I for years played with the idea of going with the flow against the stream, at my own risk and conviction, thinking that "how else could one challenge modern enslavement all of us are still involved with today" - which our collective ignorance allows in the name of "progress"...

Artpilgrims grew on me since 2011 during my Art pilgrimages, where I noticed what was great and eternal, versus what was missing and ephemeral. The need behind Artpilgrims became obvious in autumn 2012 after haven met Satish Kumar, an "Earth Pilgrim", deep-ecologist and disciple of Mahatma Gandhi.


"It (also) became an "undeniable imperative", when the fruit of scientific brain studies, confirmed in an interview of Dalia Zaidel that "interdisciplinary art is indeed the secret to peace & new vision in cultural evolution". - 

Dr Philipp Romero MD, NYC, Founder of the Smart Peace Prize


Inspired by today's challenges and those of various artists of all times, visualising and serving the awakening of harmony, we consecrate our Art to Life, rather than our Life to Art. Gradually freeing ourselves and our surroundings from the chains of old patterns; re-embracing our universal identity within a constantly renewed attitude of integrity towards mother Nature and faith towards the Spirit orchestrating our lives.-
