Spirit Of The Forest - Canvas Art Print
This canvas is made exclusively for Northern Fire and therefore only a limited number will ever be printed.
Spirit Of The Forest is Villkat Arts' largest acrylic painting on canvas to date! The original painting spans 100 x 100cm and took approximately 80hrs over the course of a year!
For Villkat, this is one of his most significant paintings in the series so far as it was born in a time of strife and was a way of seeking healing. Amongst the imaginary stones, one of the main features is a powerful stag; the spirit of the forest. The stag is a helping source of spiritual connection guided by the illuminated Vegvisir symbol. Originally the forest trees were without leaf and the painting came to a standstill which was a reflection of some personal struggles in life... About 8 months passed before the painting was touched again after some travels and soul searching, Villkat knew there had been some healing. As soon as the brushes touched the canvas again, the trees burst into life with renewal & regrowth. This painting was truly an epic undertaking on many levels.
Villkat says “The process of this painting has taken me on a full circle journey, I started this when I was feeling lost after a difficult time, like feeling lost in Forest that was darkened through a life hardship, then like coming into a clearing and being met by a spirit guide that helped me regain my light again”.
Villkat hopes that this painting can inspire you in some way, connecting with nature and the spiritual aspects of life. Thank you for coming on a journey into this psychedelic realm.
