Commissioned for East meets West exclusively, six contemporary artists create a visual conception of the combination of the twelve Eastern astrological years and the twelve signs of the Western zodiac. John Abel, Ken Goldman, Analise Rigan, Andre Rushing, Thierry Chatelain, and Stephanie Goldman together created the exquisite art you will find on our website.
The East meets West Collection
Our collection of original paintings by the original East meets West artists include the 144 combined the Eastern and Western, along with portraits of each individual sign. This unique project took over three years to complete and represents a contemporary view of the ingenious talent of the artists viewed through the framework of popular and historic astrology.
It has been a challenge to these visual artists to pique the interest of the patrons of fine art, as well as the general public, through the appeal of this allegorical imagery in astrological personality portraitures.
In addition to the 144 combined signs, our artists created one each of the 12 Eastern Animals and the 12 Western Star Signs. All are of the artwork by the East meets West artists has been reproduced and is available in various books, art & gifts in our Shop. You may contact Ruth Hoffman with enquiries about purchasing the originals.
