ARTIST & INNER JOURNEYER
Born in Alberta, Canada, Kevin Campeau spent his childhood on a farm in the northern prairies where he came to discover a love for drawing, writing and shapeshifting into the different forms within his imagination. After graduating from high school he moved to Alberta's Rocky Mountains, seeking adventure and a new landscape. It was here that he was overtaken by a sudden illness which left him nearly completely paralyzed.
After his physical recovery he moved to Quebec in Eastern Canada. Catalyzed by his experience, it was there that he began to focus reflectively into his creative process while seeking methods for spiritual inner healing. He took up meditation, which led him deeper into the practice of inner journeying (first learned in childhood) as well as automatic drawing and writing. These practices began to interweave and function as a unit. As he would meditate into his inner landscapes, inspired by vivid dreams or simply from what was arising in the moment, he would encounter archetypal spiritual guides and dialogue with them, recording these dialogues in writing and drawing.
In 2012 the artist attended The Visions in the Mischtechnik Seminar in Italy, following a calling to learn painting and expand his ability to share images of his inner experiences. He then attended The Vienna Academy of Visionary Art from its inception, becoming the first graduate of its 3 year program in June of 2016. During this time he studied under nearly all of the current members of the Visionary Guild. He also began to share his experiences with self-healing, co-leading a number of workshops that transmit different aspects of his personal healing and creative practice.
In the summer of 2017 the artist co-taught The Visions in the Mischtechnik Seminar in Italy – 5 years after having been a student there. He is continuing to offer more workshops on inner journeying, automatic drawing and his own painting technique as well as offering one-on-one and group inner journeying sessions and private art lessons.
Kevin Campeau is currently based in Vienna, Austria.
