Fine Arts Galleries
Experience the power of psychedelic art forms at galleries across Boom
Compelling visual representations depict scenes that unravel within the mind's eye. Such is the art of sharing the seemingly inexpressible, yet one that has been practised by a wealth of different cultures conveying the richness of their centuries-old traditions.
Feel a glandular tingle as your neurons mirror the depiction of a medicinal vision. Step into a Virtual Reality Pod and be hurled into the walk-in version of a pharmaceutical fractal. Encounter brushstrokes and pixels that infuse your mind with an alien elixir of thoughts and emotions.
As a global gathering of the psychedelic scene, Boom is inspired by countless seminal artists, both traditional and contemporary. In return, a rich creative resonance occurs inside this congregation: a phenomenon that traditionally finds expression in a series of live painting sessions.
Brand new concepts for displaying visual arts across Boomland beckon in 2022. Visionary art itself has been one of the core components of the festival since 2002, and Boom has contributed to its dissemination in festival culture. Following this era, we now explore the connection between art and its relation to the sacred and the Anthropocene, entering as we do, a new phase showcasing fine arts at Boom. Expect several art galleries at Boom 2022 and contemplate a rich series of visual artists from different walks of life.
The program is continuously updated as we journey closer towards the festival dates.
(Selfie sticks, mobile phones and national flags are not transcendental or psychedelic at all. Just the opposite. They represent the dark side of the Anthropocene, as they disrupt the flow of Here & Now and interfere with the state of Oneness.)
