In the second week we will focus on bringing our paintings to completion in colour, balancing the natural or realistic expression with the supernatural or symbolic elements.

Kuba Ambrose

Born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, Kuba Ambrose is a painter working predominately in the area of visionary/mystic art. Much of Kuba’s art is inspired by dreams and visions as well as seed passages of truth from the various major spiritual traditions.

‘My art is an attempt to unify and harmonize the seemingly opposing forces within, to arrive at a balance and stillness. The paintings are a sort of log book of my inner journeys and of the search for deeper meaning.. Often I’ll begin an artwork with a key phrase or central theme and later that is expanded upon through the play of the imagination’.

Kuba studied painting at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and later travelled to Europe to study the technique of oil and egg tempera painting. Kuba lives on the outskirts of Vienna, Austria where he currently teaches at the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art.

Vera Atlantia

The art of Vera Atlantia reflects our intimate connection to Source and the deepening experience of spiritual awakening. Inspired equally by words and images, this Austrian-born artist has explored both art and writing as a life-long pursuit into self-inquiry, healing and the inner world of the soul. In particular, the vision journey, meditation and writing have led her into deeper dimensions of consciousness and the imagination.

Painting became a source of deep inner healing for her, when personal loss revealed art as a tool for transformation. Such healing, she discovered, finds remarkable support through creative expression. These profound experiences lead her to the study of Painting Therapy at the Institut für Mal- und Gestaltungstherapie in Vienna.

In 2013, Vera Atlantia has initiated a regular painting workshop called Seelenmaler (Soul Painter) in Vienna, which emphasizes art-making as a tool for self-inquiry and discovery. Vera Atlantia is currently teaching at The Vienna Academy of Visionary Art.
