Evolian Art

Hereby an outing into the world of art.

Personally, I both like (1) abstract art and (2) art depicting everyday reality. As for abstract art Julius Evola made some memorable pictures in this vein.

In his youth up and until 1921 Evola was active as a painter, as an abstract artist. He’s not a major figure of this art movement (that of Kandinsky, Klee, Balla, Picabia) but he was indeed a part of it, making some noteable contribitions. My personal favorite Evola paintings are ”Paesaggio interiore, apertura del diaframma,” ”Five o’clock tea” (see pic) and ”La libra s’infiamma e le piramidi”. Evola meant that ”art is egoism and freedom,” a spiritual way of expressing yourself, a way of going into a trance and transcend the limitations of the individual.
