Born and raised in the Inland Empire, Lysergic is a psychedelic visionary and graphic illustrator. Influenced by comic books, cartoons, vintage pin ups, and underground cultures such as Hip Hop, Rave, and Punk, he has developed a style that is raw and free with deeper meanings that come from his interest in philosophy, religion, and the study of inner divinity.
As a youth, drawing was his escape from reality and a way to express the mess that was going on in his head. Sticking to what he loves, Lysergic found that the future of art was in digital media, and went on to get a degree in Graphic design. With a new outlet and tools for expression, he combines all his favorite mediums to materialize his visions in effort to reflect the inner experience one has as they pass through the doors of perception, while positively paving a path towards spiritual perfection. These reflections are encompassed within the MELT Monkey symbol that you may see in many of his pieces.
“The MELT Monkey is a symbol statement for who we are as unique individuals that have went within to find ourselves, and returned back as free thinkers that seek positive change in the world. MELT: Minds Evolving Levels of Thought”
