A multi media event with art, live music and video. This event will showcase the digital artwork of Adi Da Samraj, combining hand-drawn and painted forms as well as photographs into compositions. Adi Da Samraj (1939 - 2008) created art for over 40 years with a single intention: the visual communication of truth, and the means to draw the viewer beyond separateness into the paradox of "indivisible unity". Since emerging on the international art scene at the 2007 Venice Biennale, Adi Da's art has consistently drawn broad critical acclaim.

“It is a rare artist that can convey, convincingly, being face to face with the source of Being. Adi Da’s ever-changing images become all-pervasive ‘big screen’ experiences, perceptually riveting, indeed, sometimes excruciatingly intense, but always balanced and even sublime sensory experiences.” - Donald Kuspit, Critic, Professor of Art History and Philosophy, State University of New York

“[Adi Da's] pursuit of the spiritual paths found in early abstraction, from Kandinsky to Mondrian, and [his] translation of that pursuit into the digital age, restore a transcendental spirituality to the materialism of the machine aesthetic." - Peter Weibel, Director, ZKM, Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany

“True art heals. True art restores equanimity.
Art must regenerate the sense of wellbeing.
That is its true purpose.”
- Adi Da Samraj
