Nehira Jupiter is a classically trained artist using paint, photography and the written word
to explore and make visible the invisible strings of intelligence that weave life together.
She has had mystical experiences and unusual encounters with death
since childhood. At 15 years old, a near death experience solidified her knowing that
there is far more to life, to consciousness, than what we experience with our physical senses.

What if Art is a doorway to greater receptivity to life itself? What if different Artists create different Doorways to step through and engage the observer with new ways of being?
Art has the power to illuminate the way inward, transcend the throttle of time and act as a bridge for universal language to penetrate the mind and inspire revelation in the viewer. Powerful art is at the heart of most cultures. Compelling art awakens something deep inside of us whether universal or personal. Masterful art can revolutionize the collective vision of society.
A scoresheet is to music what art is to the soul; I see myself as a semi-conductor to the mystical and magical. The visual feedback or artifacts that result from my meditative creative process act as a recording of my conversation with the driving force of the cosmos, God, Infinity, or whatever one wishes to call the source of energy within each of us which compels us to thrive. Intentional artistry is part of my yogic path and my wish to leave this world a better, more connected place than I found it with the far-reaching help of the artifacts I leave behind.
THE MISSION OF ART
I am part of an ever-evolving, multifaceted global network of visionaries from all walks of life, known yet largely unknown, whose primary mission in this life is to elevate society and humanity’s interaction with life on Earth by being as harmonious as possible through our day-to-day efforts and the artistic creations we labor into manifestation. We are being the change we wish to see in the world and inspiring others to do the same. I believe, in spite of the sheer chaos of our times, this is one of the most exciting times to be a human on Planet eARTh.
Currently I shoot with a Nikon Z5 using a minimalist two lens kit: the Nikkor 85mm f1.8 plus Tamron's 17-35 f2.8.
Any special effects are created in camera using optical prisms only. Multiple exposures are produced in Photoshop with minimal editing but every once in a while I get lucky with a great in-camera multiple exposure.
Past favorite cameras include Nikon's D750 and my first camera, Canon's D60. I long for more Sigma ART glass...
