January Featured Art: Four Buddhist Monks Painting

I first spotted this unique art work whilst browsing through the Facebook pages. Instantly my eyes were drawn to the somewhat symmetrical swirls that also depict 4 monks. I have viewed similar styles to this before but only after carefully inspecting every inch of this image did I realise its true beauty.

The style used in this image is referred to as "Energism", which shows the spiritual energy within the scene. Artist Julia Watkins, pioneer of this original style, has beautifully captured what the naked human eye is unable to see; energy.

Immediately I was able to see that the picture was not just a bunch of swirls, but the monks were clearly visible amidst their own colourful auras/energy and what I love most about this is that all of the energy intertwines and connects with the energies of the things and people around; which is very symbolic of the concepts of Chinese martial art "Tai Chi".
