‘Surrealist reality’ by Kinga Britschgi

-(Artículo en construcción)-

About Kinga Britschgi, in her own words.

Kinga Britschgi is a Hungarian artist living in the United States. She is best known for her magical digital images that always have some dark surrealistic elements. She was born in Nagyatád, Hungary and moved to the U.S. in 1995. She has a degree in Fine Arts (graphic design), TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), and Elementary Education.

Her works were published in numerous professional publications and in 2013 Adobe chose her as one of the artists in their ‘New Creatives’ campaign.

She lives with her husband and son in Boise, Idaho.

– I earned a degree in Elementary Education, including Art Education and also in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. For a long time I had a very hard time deciding which direction I wanted to take. In Hungary, it seemed to be teaching English and some art, in the United States, it is mainly art with some teaching.

I try to make art a daily ritual or at least a daily engagement. Although I usually define myself as a collage-painter and block printer, I have mainly four areas of interest: collages (in a broad sense; as I am also attracted to assemblage, bricollage and such things), block printing, artist books and computer graphics.

I create my pieces from “found objects.” Mainly old ephemera, books, charms, photos, nature’s treasures, fabric and a lot of other sources. I also have innumerable rubber stamps. I am a “metallic” fan: gold, copper, silver, bronze.

Lately I have returned to some of my old college routines: oil paintings, some watercolor and pencil drawings. My favourite and always returning motif is the female nude in many, many forms.

As I also write (unfortunately much less lately than I used to) I often use my writings as a starting and/or inspiring point. I create either a ‘visual writing chunk’ (when the actual words, their physical appearance, have vital parts in the finished piece) or merely an illustration for the chosen sentences.

Recently, while I was drawing for one of my newer collages, I stopped and started to think: why do I not draw/paint a ‘whole-story’ picture? (You know: women are sitting in a sun-lit forest chatting; little cottage on a river bank or even a portrait; you know what I am talking about.) Why do I feel the urge of pasting bits and pieces to / at / below / above / through my seemingly unfinished drawings / paintings and finish them in this way, creating a collage? It is not because I could not paint or draw an ‘epic’ picture, I guess. It is because I do not think in a linear way, and because I always want to express much more than I ever could in any other ‘linear‘ form. I am not saying other directions are wrong; what I mean is, that for the ultimate and only way of my self-expression is the collage form with its unbelievable freedom.

I am a very slow artist; in this context it means that although collage seems to be a very improvisational form, for me it is a very, very serious, bittersweet battle: when I finish my piece I can tell you exactly why I have chosen a certain piece of paper or why I attached that label or why I positioned that rusty piece of metal just there. What I mean is, yes, even if I hate this term, my pieces do have some message; on the other hand I am the last person who expects anyone to ‘go for’ this message. But it is extremely important for me to create purposefully; to know what I do and why exactly I do that in that certain piece. I do believe that in this way I create something that is worth looking at, ‘deeper‘ than a decoupage (“a surface decoration“). And I do believe that even if my ‘message’ cannot be discovered sometimes, the piece can put up with time for a long while and please people as it is being born out of a painful but extremely joyful creative process.

I do not like the term, “fast and easy to make.” I think it is always very hard to make something meaningful and in a lot of cases it is a long and frustrating process. But this is exactly what is most beautiful about being an artist.

In the future, I am planning to go back to school and study printing and book arts.

More about ‘Kingabrit’

I am a Hungarian artist having been living in the U.S. since 1995. Although my art degree is graphic design I work in both traditional and digital media. Apart from magazine covers and cd covers my works appeared in several professional magazines. I like to create magical worlds in my pictures and my specialty is creating surrealist photo manipulations / photo collages with a touch of fantasy; I call them ‘surrealist reality’. I sometimes design digital collage elements that my clients can mix-and-match to make their own art pieces.

Corporate & personal print designs (posters, flyers, invitations, brochures), book- and cd-covers, packaging, digital illustrations, and digital fine art. Ten plus years of experience in the creative field.

If you are interested in hiring me for a graphic design job visit my website ( kingabrit.wix.com/kinga “Contact” tab) or simply send me a note here. Please allow me a few days to respond.

I am a professional graphic designer and digital artist working in both traditional and digital media. My specialities are print designs, illustrations, and surreal digital fine art. I love creating corporate and personal flyers, brochures, cards, direct mail pieces (mailers), signage, magazine ads, and banners. I am also designing eye-catching book- and cd-covers.

I do have a very specific and unique way of seeing the world around me, so my designs, although always very professional and effective, stand out of the mainstream designs helping my clients a great deal to achieve their business goal. My clients include Adobe, Sydney Theatre School (Australia), The College of Idaho, Olibet (Belgium), and numerous small businesses and individuals.

Pranava – Deep Chant and Yantra Meditation

Pranava – Deep chant and yantra meditation – Natural Aum / Om

Del canal YouTube ‘AwakenTheWorldFilm‘ un vídeo con cantos para la meditación Pranava.

….

[ Publicado el 2 ene. 2013

The recording can be purchased at http://www.spiritlegend.com.

A high definition (1080P) MP4 version of Pranava can be purchased for download at:

http://www.innerworldsmovie.com/index…

Pranava is the original vibration of the universe that is dancing your life into being. If you feel a resonance calling you back to your inner nature, to the Source of creation, then you have the seed of dharma or wisdom. To re-establish the balance between the inner and outer worlds is what the Buddha called the middle way, and what Aristotle called the Golden Mean, what Lao Tsu called the silent balance between Yin and Yang.

The animation and deep voice chanting was done by Daniel Schmidt and female voice by Eva Dametto. Also check out the documentary “Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds” at http://www.innerworldsmovie.com.

For those asking how yantra and mantra meditation works… A yantra or mantra is a tool or mechanism for awakening inner energy and consciousness simultaneously. The mantra is simply the audible form of the visual yantra- the two are not separate; it is only our senses that filter the vibratory world. Simply be fully present and conscious, while at the same time removing all resistance to the phenomena you experience (gross and subtle sensations, visuals, sounds, thoughts, emotions, etc.). Do not try to DO anything, think anything or make anything happen, but observe reality as it actually is with a still and unmoving mind. This combination of presence and surrender to what IS, is the essence of meditation.

Pranava was created as part of the film Inner Worlds Outer Worlds. Frequently asked questions about the film and Pranava:

1) Where can I get a particular song or the soundtrack?

A: Much of the music is available for purchase at http://www.spiritlegend.com on various CD’s. We will be coming out with a special Inner Worlds compilation in the Summer of 2013. The track “Om Shreen Hreem” is found under “Yoga” in a CD called “Universal Mother”.

2) Can I download the film and upload it to my own Youtube Channel?

A: We whole-heartedly encourage everyone to share the existing Youtube links with their friends, embed on their website, or to create screenings for their community. I’m afraid we cannot allow you to re-upload the film to your own channel for the following reasons:

a) The content itself is copyrighted and is owned by REM Publishing Ltd. Some of the video clips in the film are licensed under certain agreements and cannot be distributed or controlled by third parties.

b) Several individuals have already tried to re-upload the film and to monetize their channel and/or make a profit from selling the film without our permission, or simply to try to build subscribers for their own channel. We don’t always know what people’s true motivation is (and sometimes neither do they).

c) Our channel contains closed captions in many languages and we don’t want versions of the film floating around without these professional translations.

d) When users subscribe to the AwakenTheWorldFilm channel we can provide people future films as we release them. This is just the first of many films and our second is already in the works.

e) Our channel also provides links to our website and Facebook page and the opportunity for people to donate to the Awaken the World initiative. Money/ support is needed to make these films, and while we make them available for free, we really appreciate when people donate, offer translation skills or other support.

If you add the existing Youtube links to a playlist you can still share the film with your friends and viewers and still have it as part of your channel, just do not upload your own version. We greatly appreciate people who feel so strongly about the content that they want to share and spread the film, and hope that you will continue to do so.

3) Where can I find a screening/ workshop/ meditation retreat etc.

A: Current information is available on the Inner Worlds Facebook page:

Samadhi film update

[ 19 diciembre 2016, 15:19 ]

There have been many inquiries about the film lately as we are nearing the end of 2016 and I just want to provide you all with an update. It has been a continuous exercise in “letting go” as I have had to drop my own expectations and mentally imposed deadlines. That being said it has been a busy, productive year and things are really coming together.

I am starting to see a final finished film getting ready to be born into the world within a few months. This is necessarily coinciding with the evolution of my own meditation practice and ever-deepening experience of Samadhi.

I feel that it is no accident that this ancient teaching is coming back into the world at a time of much turmoil, and the potential for mass awakening has never been more potent on planet Earth. All attention and dedication is being given to this birthing process, so rest assured that it will arrive when the greater poetry of the universe deems fit.

Thank you for your patience and I will provide further updates in the new year.

“If a man wishes to be sure of the road he treads on, he must close his eyes and walk in the dark.”

St. John of the Cross.
