Kaliptus (Born April 16, 1984 in Lisbon, Portugal) is a NY/NJ graduate artist from SVA with a BFA in animation and an MFA in computer art. He uses painting, film, motion graphics, animation, stop-motion, video-mixing, multimedia, interactive arts, installations and more to express ideas that are usually surreal, visionary and vital to the philosophies and understandings of the human consciousness. Kaliptus has been commissioned to work on projects for Alex Grey, Marvel, Stephen King, DC Comics, Black Tide, MTV, Prudential Center, Zoomdout, Shpongle, Sneaux, Orange County Choppers, American Choppers, and more. He is currently living in New Jersey and is a busy, self-employed freelance artist, working on a wide variety of projects from his home studio. Intrigued by his self-expression and his mind-bending creativity, I reached out to him to elaborate more on his intuitive driven creations. Kaliptus speaks about his upbringing, motivation, visions, messages, goals, bridging “the intuitive brain and the technical brain to create works of art that reveal the Transpersonal Realms of Mind”, the creative process, alignment, consciousness, and Light-Tech!
