Psychedelics and Art

In this article we will try to show you how the psychedelic drugs can affect  art.

No one can deny that art is the ultimate form of expression. An artist’s creativity has no limits, no rules or boundaries.

Graphic designer Brian Pollett aka Pixel-Pusha recently set out to give a visual representation of the effects of drugs. Each day, for 20 days straight, Pollett ingested a different one and sat down to interpret its effects into a digital illustration.

After years of research into the emotional and chemical effects of each drug, Pollett commenced his 20-day experiment, using a drug testing kit to ensure the purity of each substance he was taking. He also always took the drugs in a controlled environment, within the safety of his studio, while listening to his favorite music.

Resulting artworks below are quite interesting and provide a stunning insight into Pollett’s experience:
