Visionary art is art that purports to transcend the physical world and portray a wider vision of awareness including spiritual or mystical themes, or is based in such experiences.
Both trained and self-taught (or outsider) artists have, and continue to create visionary works. Many well known visionary artists have drawn inspiration from psychedelic drug experience, although this is not a prerequisite.
Contemporary visionary artists count Hieronymous Bosch and William Blake amongst their antecedents. Symbolism, Surrealism and Psychedelic art are also direct precursors to contemporary visionary art. The Vienna School of Fantastic Realism, which includes Ernst Fuchs and Aric Brauer, is also to be considered an important technical and philosophical catalyst in its strong influence upon the contemporary visionary culture.
