There’s a whole week or tarot art coming up! This one is a kicker of a way to start things off:
Found this set of Majors a few nights ago and got completely caught up in the lines and details. I love how the artist has created something very unusual and deeply symbolic with not many colours or large areas of shading.
The metallic pens on the black background are the perfect medium for the themes the artist uses (I think I see a lot of magickal? Gnostic? references) and the way he chooses to portray the figures. Showing structured musculature (almost as if the skin has bee stripped away) in combination with the areas of intricate detail – eg. wing feathers, facial decorative marks etc – makes the figures seem otherworldy and “worthy” of holding Arcane knowledge. The could be angels or demons or creatures we’ve never encountered before, but they are definitely powerful.
View all 22 Majors in the artist’s gallery, along with many other pieces (zodiac, elements, spirits, dreams etc.) that are equally hypnotic. Go NOW!
