Exploring Bicycle Day: A Psychedelic Journey

Exploring Bicycle Day: A Psychedelic Journey

We are wishing you a Happy Bicycle Day!

April 19th, marks a pivotal moment in psychedelic history: the intentional ingestion of LSD by Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann in 1943. What started as a scientific mishap led to a transformative bicycle ride through Basel, sparking a cultural revolution.

Hofmann's accidental trip catalyzed the counterculture movement of the 1960s, influencing art, music, and philosophy. I mean hey - who hasn't felt a little inspired after taking a little LSD. 

As we celebrate Bicycle Day, let's take a look at some of the great psychedelic artists we have collaborated with in the past:

1. John Speaker (@johnspeakerart)

John Speaker's art is a symphony of colors and shapes, weaving together elements of sacred geometry and visionary motifs. His intricate designs draw viewers into a world of infinite possibilities, where the boundaries between the physical and spiritual dissolve. With a background in both fine art and graphic design, John brings a meticulous attention to detail to his work, creating pieces that are as intellectually stimulating as they are visually captivating. Collaborating with John has been a transformative experience, as his art challenges us to expand our perceptions and embrace the interconnectedness of all things.

In conclusion, the artists we've had the pleasure of collaborating with at Grassroots California are not just creators, but visionaries. Their art challenges us to question the nature of reality, to explore the depths of our own consciousness, and to embrace the beauty and wonder of the world around us. We are honored to have worked with Ellie Paisley, Android Jones, Aaron Brooks, Chris Dyer, and John Speaker, and we look forward to continuing to support and celebrate their incredible talents in the years to come
