    vernacular art led to Tainan on the southern west coast and eventually to visionary artist Hung Tung Orpha ned at the age of three Hung Tung was raised by his uncle and grandfather In his youth he worked as a shepherd and later as a fisherman He spent much time at his local Taoist temple it is said he served as a medium there and was a shaman Suddenly at the age of 50 Hung Tung isolated himself and began painting passionately obsessively to the exclusion of all other work Hung Tung s earliest paintings are imbued with a great sense of spontaneity Simple markings seem to come from his own private revelations supernatural beings peering out from blotches of paint As he began his self training he filled notebooks with images and calligraphy that was not readable but functioned pictorially Nonetheless he finished each of these compositions with his seal just like a traditional Chinese painting Hung Tung s first painted scrolls were mounted on the back wall of a famous temple Hung Tung took the classic scroll of Chinese painting and turned it into a surface for his relentlessly exuberant expressions of the natural and supernatural world His

    Sacramento State College visiting psychology professor Dr Tarmo Pasto who sensing they were exceptional put them safely away in storage Years later Chicago artist Jim Nutt teaching at the college in the late 1960s found the works and spearheaded the first exhibition of Ramirez work leading to its representation by Phyllis Kind Gallery and attention from the greater art world Born in the Los Altos region of Jalisco Mexico Ramirez lived there until he was about 30 Scenes memories and dreams from that culture seemingly confront the viewer Los Altos is ranchland and it is no surprise that horses and their trappings are shown in such detail Hunting was a survival activity the area was thick with deer and other game animals Mexican folk Catholicism permeates this art from apocalyptic imagery to allegories of animal Madonna and child The art of Martín Ramírez is monumental Ranging in size from a few inches to nine feet in height the effect of his drawings on the viewer is enormous Drawn in by the proscenium he has set up one is mesmerized by the lines colors and characters he has assembled there A master fabulist his stories include images of the natural world

    as they draw a humbling constraint The purpose of talismans is to rid the human body of the demonic spirits that are causing physical or mental problems The cleric Gedewon born in the province of Bagemdir Ethiopia led a nomadic life until he settled in Addis Ababa the country s capitol Versed in the art of qené rhetorical poetry as well as esoteric sciences including herbal healing and ancient languages he was a gifted man Aggressive and combative this temperament suited his role as a conduit for banishing evil spirits His talismans are remarkable speaking both of sacred knowledge cosmology and his unique visionary world view It is only in his talismans that the topography of Ethiopia is incorporated into his design made with Gedewon s own technique of colored ink drawing on industrial made paper These talismans are perceived by Ethiopians as beyond the flat and static Multidimensional they are dynamic creations with spatial and directional attributes Bad spirits inhabiting the patient gaze upon the talisman through the eyes of that individual They begin a battle with the positive forces angels incantations and numerology among them of the talisman Entering and exiting through openings in the maze like drawing
