Spirit Element: Air£ 95.00 – £ 990.00 BUY
Air belongs to a series of 5 paintings in art-ma’s collection, each relating to one of the classical elements: Fire, Water, Earth, Air and Space. This collection created by Ovidiu Kloska, is a compilation of abstract paintings, featuring heavy textures in rich colours, resulting in contemporary artwork that is both fascinating and dramatic.
Air is a symbol of our soul, divinity, breath and strength and consciousness. Although the elements are significant across many cultures, in the Upanishad, an ancient scripture from Hinduism, it refers to the elements being used for spiritual growth.
“From Atman (your inner self) did space come into being;
from space, air; from air, fire;
from fire, the waters; from the waters, the earth;
from the earth, plants; from plants, food;
and from food, man…”
– Taittirīya Upaniṣhad
In this painting the big brush strokes of Acrylic in shades of blue, brown, yellow and green sweep across the canvas like the wind, creating a beautiful piece of artwork in Kloska’s series of the five elements.

Sleeping Angel£ 95.00 – £ 400.00 BUY
This artwork by Italian artist Pietro Di Giovannantonio symbolises the belief common to different faiths, that we are never alone, there is always a guardian angel beside us – watching over us and protecting us.
Central to the painting is a sleeping angel, who is dressed in heavenly white and looks serene and calm. A golden ring of divine light surrounds the angel, who appears to be floating through the sky, as if in a dream.
This piece symbolises this intimate bond that our guardian angels share with us as they lead us to the path of righteousness. This guardian angel has descended onto earth from heaven above to protect its believer from evil and generate good and fruitful thoughts.

Aum The Primordial Vibration£ 75.00 – £ 600.00 BUY
The universal sound of AUM is the primordial sound of the Universe. It’s the sound that reverberates in the entire cosmos and in every cell of our body. It is believed to be the sound present at the beginning of the universe from which all creation spawned
The symbol has spiritual meaning across all Indian religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and Sikhism. The three phonetic components of AUM correspond to the three stages of cosmic creation, and when it is read or said, it celebrates the creative powers of the universe. When taken letter by letter, A-U-M represents the divine energy (Shakti) united in its three elementary aspects: Brahma Shakti (creation), Vishnu Shakti (preservation) and Shiva Shakti (liberation, and/or destruction). The letter ‘A’ represents the waking state, ‘U’ the dream state and ‘M’ the unconscious state.
The large curve at the bottom of the symbol represents the state of awakening; the middle curve is the dream state; and the upper curve denotes the state of deep sleep. The crescent shape at the top represents Maya (illusion), which prevents us from reaching our goal – the highest state of bliss. The dot signifies the fourth state of self-consciousness, Turiya. Turiya is the state of liberation, peace and bliss, when one truly connects with the Divine.
Here, the AUM symbol is represented by the artist using a technique called fragmentation.
