“Follow Your Bliss” Paintings by Phurba Namgay
I’m a huge fan of the work of Joseph Campbell, mythologist and general wiseman . In his writings, much is made of dreams and archetypes. George Lucas, of Star Wars fame, credits Campbell with inspiring many of the characters in the films. I highly recommend the video series by Bill Moyers regarding Campbell’s book, The Power of Myth.
Bhutanese artist, Phurba Namgay fires off the same themes in his amazing paintings. Rockets, he says, remind him of mythical dragons (fire breathing I assume!). I’m ready for take-off.

My dad worked at the space center in Florida email@example.com the early 60s. I was known as a Space Coast Kid. As a child I use to see John Glen and Gus Grissom jogging up and down Cocoa Beach and at school they took us outside to watch every space shot so these paintings are very cool to me
