ARTE ARCANA Now shipping


‘Arte Divina’ highlighted divinity and the holy act of creativity. ‘Arte Arcana’ focus on the dark side of the arts from whatever philosophical source artists draw their inspiration. Speaking across cultures and traditions is difficult to say what can be considered "dark". We invite artists to share their visions, interpretations, critiques, thoughts and discussions.

Totengefl Åster by Simon Bossert
Do not imagine that art or anything else is other than high magic! - is a system of holy hieroglyph. The artist, the initiate, thus frames his mysteries. The rest of the world scoff, or seek to understand, or pretend to understand; some few obtain the truth. ― Aleister Crowley
Satan by Daniele Valeriani
