My studio is the great North Coast forests of California; gone are the large scale, candlelit paintings from the Obi Cave. These days, the work is called Trail Painting, and they are small, and they are colorful, and they represent joyful transmissions funneled from my own private, wild-place antenna. The latest work, entitled “The New Sasquatch” will be released May 1st at www.coyoteandthunder.com and atwww.obikaufmann.com.
specializing in what the owner calls “Satanic Psychedelia”…at least one vein. Here is this year’s design for the Trappist’s annual “Kerstbier” festival. You can still get the Tshirt at the Trappist in Old Oakland.

I think the wild parts of the world are the most interesting. While I do believe cities, as social system of protection and systemic domesticity may harbor wild souls, I find in myself and the close friends I have gathered around me, different, vital needs that that can only be fed by wilderness, vastness, beauty and the perfume of the forest or the desert. -Obi Kaufmann
