Born in Berkeley on the cusp of the water snake and dragon years to two students of The University of California at Berkeley, m1thr0s has been a student of the I Ching, Kabbalah and Tantra for many years.
His art features classical elements and symbols from global occult sources such as the Sephiroth, The Flower of Life, hexagrams, The Pentagram, the Great Seal of Saturn, the Lo Shu Square, Magickal Squares, The Abrahadabra Grid, the Diamond of the Hexagrams, and Astrology.
Some of the elements are born of his own inventions and forays into the analysis of The Body of Light phenomenon and the word Abrahadabra itself which was revealed in The Book of the Law (Liber al vel Legis) in 1904. These symbols are unique and provide the freshest window into the occult since Crowley’s work. The TwinStar, The Four Elemental Worlds, The Tree of Life and Abrahadabra Grid combination, the TwinStar and Abrahadabra Grid combination and the insights they provide are all his discoveries.
The unique and groundbreaking synthesis of astrological, alchemical and hexagrammology elements in The Mutational Alchemy Tarot are all his inventions and provide a rich and fertile ground for the viewer to explore. The art of m1thr0s changes them at a molecular level without them often realizing it (at least, not at first).
m1thr0s is the founder of both The Abrahadabra Institute and the study and practice of Mutational Alchemy. He lives with his minion and two plants in Olympia, WA.
