Kundalini Rising

Kundalini is a term used in spiritual practices, like yoga, to describe the indwelling cosmic or Divine energy that is awakened through awareness and presence. This energy spirals blissfully from the base of the spine, upwards, through the body towards heaven.  It is a purifying fire that opens the practitioner to Divine union, beauty and truth.

Being in the presence of this sinuously unwinding sculptural spiral, you cannot help but feel that you are being inexorably drawn into it, embraced by it, as though it is taking you on its journey to a higher level of consciousness.

Spar Street is an award-winning painter and sculptor. He specializes in painting large canvases in mixed media, with a high emphasis on sensuality, color, and movement. Before becoming an artist, Street was a skier and entrepreneur. He is best known for his work with the Nobel Foundation and the United Nations.

Street combines abstraction, impressionism, and realism into his works on canvas. His multimedia works notably evoke feelings of energy, warmth, sensuality, power, and beauty, and revolve around mostly spiritual themes. Street also employs heavy layering in many of his abstract paintings. Maui art critic Paul Janes-Brown has this to say about Street’s work: “You have to actually come and see the work to appreciate how great an artist this man is…The excitement of his work is extraordinary. The texture of the work transforms it to another place completely.”
