Art Shaman from Times Square

In September of 2014, through a mutual friend, I met Myztico Campo in his Brooklyn studio. I was very much taken with his paintings. We talked about doing an article for RS.

It is easy to fall into an un-embodied state; it’s easy to lose oneself and to not be aware that oneself has become un-embodied, and not notice until the signs are screaming at you in every direction – especially in this culture. In fact, our culture supports and encourages its citizens to be un-embodied. Thus, becoming Embodied is a revolutionary act of freedom, in this culture of enslavement to socially dysfunctional norms.
