“My art should captivate the viewer so that he can get lost in the vast horizons of the present.”

Surrounded by the majestic mountains of the Austrian Alps Simon Hafele was born in 1985 in the western part of Tyrol. Being raised in the small community of ladies Simon found inspiration in the picturesque beauty of the fundamental elements of nature. As a child he couldn’t keep his hands off crayons, which would mark the early onset of his mission: to show the world his very own perception of the complexities of life in a bright and colourful way.

Royaledelic is a visual time travel. The key elements i use to build the bridge through time are rococo elements combined with the patterns that originates in the absolute moment. A visual journey through space and time. Ultimately, it's not about the past. The past is necessary to define us in the present. The present creates truth and the future is the canvas for the dreams.

What started as a vague yet undeniable hunch became clearer when Simon started to attend Elbigenalp, a carving school where he spent 4 years continuing to explore his artistic pathway. By delving into different craft techniques and by expanding his skills in various fields Simon sealed his own fate—he would follow the calling of his soul and devote his life to art.

This is my tribute to the bees. An important part of our ecosystem, which is largely responsible for the balance in nature. The same balance that is needed to create harmony of a vision. A bee colony is perfectly organized and resembles a "superorganism" with its own collective intelligence - and different personalities. I tried to capture the beauty of this fascinating organism. The echo of the sound of vibrating bee wings, the architectural nature of the hexagonal honeycombs. If you look close, nature reveal itself as the most intelligent organism of all.

After having found his artistic roots in the solid Tyrolean mountains, Simon gave in to the natural desire to grow and travelled to India, Cambodia, Nepal, Thailand and Laos for longer periods of time. There he could not only satisfy his interest in art history but he also found the kind of inspiration, which would turn out to be vital for his evolving. Numerous experiments with different types of colours and light preceded his unique style—a visual language that translates the in-between, the transcendental experience of (yet) non-existing worlds into intriguing paintings with bright and often fluorescent colours, leaving behind an unmistakable trace of recognition.

Simon’s art is an invitation for the viewer to access alternate realms and otherworldly dimensions.

Soon Simon’s work received the well-earned attention and got exhibited in the »Galerie Theodor von Hörmann«, the »Old Fire Station Gallery« or the »Wholesale Gallery of the Imster Bergl«, to name a few. He joined the foundation »Freigeischt« and the »Atelier Sonnberg«, both providing him with opportunities not only to build an artistic network and to exhibit his works but also to deepen his practice.

I will not let myself, nor my art, down on the spectrum of political or elite thoughts. The layers I aim at are way above that and deal with consciousness and the highest emotion of all: LOVE.

Just when Simon was about to become Psy-Pix life brought on some difficulties, which in retrospective were necessary to present an opportunity for transformation. What seemed like a last resort by the time, turned out to be a game changer. A friend asked Simon if he would like to decorate one of his music festivals, a task to which the artist applied his skills and practice in a natural manner. Due to the major success of the connection between Simon’s art and music many more followed, including events in Vienna, London, Zurich and Munich. In 2015 »Vision Scientist« was born, a project dedicated to creating huge ceiling designs for festivals, and soon there were bookings lining up from the most famous Psytrance festivals in the world, like »Antaris Project« in Berlin—Germany, »ReSPect Festival« in Brazil, »UNITY Festival« in Israel, »Kosmos Festival« in Finland and many more.

God Particle is my insight into the metaphysical world of quantum mechanics, or at least my interpretation of it. A snapshot of eternity, where unconscious space becomes the canvas of consciousness. My analysis of the components of our universe and therefore also the earth and man. The secret element of life which reveals itself behind the event horizon.

The emotions I want to pass on with my paintings are also the only trigger behind them, why people might identify with my paintings.

is my interpretation of the source of creation and the mechanism behind it. The center of the painting should represent the source itself where everything originates and expands. The sweeping lines across the painting symbolize the program language, a key element that defines the vision. If you look through the eys of creation, consciousness starts to evolve. Creating opportunity for complexity where vision and geometry originates through all the different layers of perception.
