Have you ever seen an incredible painting at a festival and wished you could wear it? Well, now you can! A bevvy of your favorite visionary artists are printing their works on super sick clothing and accessories for girls and guys.

Visionary art is art that purports to transcend the physical world and portray a wider vision of awareness including spiritual or mystical themes, or is based in such experiences. Notable names in the genre include Android Jones and Alex & Allyson Grey. Visionary art is widespread in the transformational festival community because they share central themes – spirituality, consciousness, connectivity and personal transformation –  and is sometimes created in front of live audiences, often on a stage accompanied by musical performances.

Who wouldn't want to be a walking piece of art every day? We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites to make those dreams come true.

When asked why she chose to put her art on clothing, Amanda said, “Because it is exciting to see the art come alive in ways it can't when just hanging on a wall. To see how much it uplifts and inspires people gives me great joy, and it's an excuse to hang out with my friends that make this all happen with me."

She continued, "The inspiration is to contribute to a growing community of people [who] understand that everything is connected. When you wear something you claim allegiance with it. These clothes are about a lust for the vibrancy and magic of life!”

“The idea of painting on jackets came to me because I have always looked at a blank canvas and not known what to paint," said Jess Steidler. "I realized one day how much I love jackets and how much just one piece of clothing can take your style to the next level. I pulled out one of my jackets and decided to paint! It was a dream come true and I fell in love.”

In a sea of printed tanks, tees and leggings, Noa Knafo takes it to the next level by printing her stunning works of art on vegan boots! Each piece has a beautiful description of the art piece it matches.

“The Gate Of Knowledge symbolizes the opening of the gate to new dimensions of knowledge — those moments in time of sudden insight and intuition,” reads the description that goes with the boots above.

She also prints on an incredible array of clothing as well. The description on the swim trunks above read, “Each of us has our own walls and masks to protect ourselves from the things we fear in the world. Try to peel back these layers to present your true self to the world – your true reflection.”
