Seeking truth. Seeking reality. Seeking God. Seeking answers. Acquiring knowledge.
Rufus Surrealo has traversed a path that took him on an artistic trek through unintentional shamanistic art, travelling by way of fractal geometry, hallucination, projections, sci-fi, philosophy, science, abstraction, metaphysics, art theory, experimental music, and psychedelic and meditative song writing in the search for enlightenment.
Growing up on a farm south west of Sydney, Rufus wrote music and painted abstract art on the walls of huge old mushroom sheds on the property. With sunflowers at the window and farm animals all around, it may sound idyllic but for Surrealo it was a whole lot more than that. In his search for the truth he encountered a deep vein of ‘fool’s gold’ realities: “enlightening and interesting...You know the story, consciousness expansion, enlightenment, worlds inside of worlds, infinities inside of infinities, universes inside of universes....It's crap. Pleasurable, exciting, enlightening ....fool’s gold...and way too much for one farm boy to handle.” MORE
