  • DMT (Dimethyltryptamine) is a substituted tryptamine that occurs in many plants and animals, including humans, and which is both a derivative and a structural analog of tryptamine. DMT is used as a psychedelic drug and prepared by various cultures for ritual purposes as an entheogen.
    DMT has a rapid onset, intense effects, and a relatively short duration of action. For those reasons, DMT was known as the "businessman's trip" during the 1960s in the United States, as a user could access the full depth of a psychedelic experience in considerably less time than with other substances such as LSD or psilocybin mushrooms. DMT can be inhaled, ingested, or injected and its effects depend on the dose, as well as the mode of administration. When inhaled or injected, the effects last a short period of time: about five to 15 minutes. Effects can last three hours or more when orally ingested along with a monoamine oxidase inhibitor, such as the ayahuasca brew of many native Amazonian tribes. DMT can produce vivid "projections" of mystical experiences involving euphoria and dynamic pseudohallucinations of geometric forms. It appears that DMT can induce a state or feeling where the person believes to "communicate with other intelligent lifeforms". High doses of DMT produce a state that involves a sense of "another intelligence" that people sometimes describe as "super-intelligent", but "emotionally detached".

    This is a particular series to which I am personally linked. It expresses in image personal and non-personal experiences of some medicines and psychedelic drugs that surely many of you have tried or in any case heard of at least once. Imagination here has no limits. Performed in 2 or 4 hours, the work begins with a simple drawing that outlines its composition with HB pencil, super light. Inking follows with a Japanese brush or with a fine-line pen. All the works are signed and certified.
