Adam One’s work derives from a deep understanding of form and function, and an active interest in the questions of human existence through spiritual evolution. His pieces are born from the subconscious and are extremely chaotic amalgamations of archetypal subjects and stories. Meant to be ever changing and revealing, his pieces beckon one’s mind to question the world around, and to look at everything with a new perspective. Philosophically and Spiritually, Adam finds inspiration in the symbols of Theosophy, Cosmogony, Alchemy, Hermeticism and Gnosticism. It is from this groundwork that he constructs his own view of the cosmos, working ancient concepts into future imaginings.
Mark Joachim is a visionary artist that works with many art mediums. Incorporating symbols and sacred geometry into the vision. Adding earthly elements as well (laser cut wood),metal and crystals. The art has multidimensional healing properties and each piece is unique within itself. Follow his work on Instagram/mighteyesee_
