Fungi art with Michael Campbell

Depictions of nature are possibly the most primal form of art in human history. From cave paintings to surrealistic paintings from modernism, our art has evolved over the years. Influenced by the psychedelic renaissance and the popularization of mycology by lecturers such as Terence Mckenna and Paul Stamets. Such themes brought new eyes to the scene, people with an artistic vein and interested in more than breeding their own fungi, people that saw the beauty in such specimens and began adapting fungi with their special touch birthing wonderful artworks.

Michael Campbell is one of these cases, after being a professor and a student in the field of art, he fell in love with the beauty of nature and started adapting his artworks to thematics such as religion, nature, and fungi.
