Cosmic Art may not be the most common term around, but it makes sense to me. Cosmic art is often that which is classified as science fiction or fantasy. But science fiction seems to imply something scientific, like robots or traveling in space. And fantasy seems too unreal, based on the creatures and places of fairy tales, wonderful though they are. So cosmic art seems to be something a little different.
You see, the cosmos is always something a bit more than just the physical universe, even though some might think that is all there is. The cosmos includes the realm of mind, of thought, of consciousness, of spirit. So while cosmic art often includes images of space like suns, moons, planets and such, it also often involves the realm of thought or imagination, perhaps dreams, as well. And it often has that spiritual connection, with content that seems to have eternal existence in a realm that is not just physical.
Whether that makes sense or not, why not just check it out! Here I've collected some examples of cosmic art that I enjoy, and hope others will too. Many are based on amazing monuments or structures that are mysterious and fascinating in their own right; these artists just take their essence a step further into a new realm.
