International art book “Excellent Art – Exzellente Kunst”

Relaxation with art and poetry

The art book presents 31 artists from 19 countries around the globe. Most of them are award winning artists and finalists, others adequate guest artists. Readers are encouraged to choose any of the artworks in this book and, using the instructions for meditative art observation, deeply and consciously connect with it to experience the unique form of art-induced relaxation emblematic of the “Enter into Art” concept. Based on the visible, specific side of paintings and sculptures, art lovers are invited to try out this stimulating method of connecting with the artworks themselves. To accompany this excellent selection of paintings, some first-class international haiku poems are presented alongside them. Both original versions and English translations of the poems are included – reading poetry in a foreign language allows us to perceive its characteristic color tones, increasing its intercultural effect. The art and poetry pages give artists the opportunity to present their artwork in combination with their own poetry.
