You know how the simplicity in certain pieces of art instantly calms you down? That’s not a side effect. Every single brush stroke and colour tint has been deliberately chosen so as to provoke that exact reaction from you. Sucker!
For example- take these paintings from Russian artist Vitaliy Bugara. Designed as mandalas (religious circle art that represents wholeness and universal truth), hypnosis is literally their purpose. Bugara uses complementary colour palettes and basic shapes to create a radial symmetry that makes it easy to focus on the individual pieces of each design, while simultaneously understanding how they all fit together. Like yoga breathing exercises but prettier!
