A fine idea for my next trip. I would have to recommend a book of Magritte's works. Most of his paintings look like he was tripping when he did'em. He's the one with the guy in the business suit with an apple in front of his face.

Funny you should mention it, there's this really nice Magritte book I've been wanting to buy for a while, and I was thinking how cool it would be too look at tripping.

There is this one book at this crazy art antique store that is AMAZING! Its called Metamorphosis. It is the coolest shit ever. Its like a fantasy book with all these breathtaking drug induced pictures and then it has a story that goes along with it. The story is cool because it has no purpose or plot its just a whole bunch of words that are written beautifully in calligraphy on the side. I want it so much but it costs 75 dollars :frown: *sigh* ahh well Fuzzy can dream.

Magritte's works are the best... he has a surreal style that will mess with your sence of reality... it could freak you out if you don't like this feeling. but if you do it's a great thing to look at while tripin'.

I have to agree with BeastMaster...

I think Rene Magitte is the best surreal artist ever....screw Dali. Looking at his work while tripping is the greatest thing...my last acid trip I got online and found some of his stuff...not only were the visuals great, but the feeling I got when I looked at them made me feel like he made that peice of work just so I could look at it when I'm tripping...to sum it up it was just
the shit.

If you want to try something freaky just look at some of Giger's works, very freaky yet damn cool

Patrick LeNestour: The Mystery of Things

any collections of abdul mati klarwein are amazing...
the photograhs accompanying jane english's translation of _tao te ching_ are simply vibratory...

For some real art to look at while you're trippin I suggest ANYTHING by Vassily Kandinsky.....It'll leave you speechless. Not to mention he was synesthetic by birth.

Does anyone know the name of the artist who did the the painting "Gaia"? It's like a tree with half of it all green and animals and the other half factories and pollution. I actually don't like that painting but it's the only one I could remeber the name of.

I was looking at the book yesterday and it was amazing, but I can't remember his name. He did lots of sort of anatomical/spiritual drawings...lots of skinless people having sex with lotus flowers and stuff...well they werne't having sex with lotus flowers they were having sex with eachother and their consciousness was connected to lotus flowers and stuff....it was really cool, but I didn't have $30 bucks for it.
