OUROBOROS day 16 of 50 Paintings Drew Brophy Nov 10 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.  

You might love ’em, you might hate ’em, but either way, I hope they invoke a feeling for you.

This painting is #16 of 50 in the #50Paintings series.


SIZE:  11″x 14″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Series Archival Canvas Board.

The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.

The Ouroboros often symbolizes self-reflectivity or a cycle, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself.


It’s the same thing as yin and yang.  At it’s essence, it’s positive and negative ions, which is operating the entire universe.  It’s good and bad, light and dark, it’s everything.


I was inspired to paint this symbol after watching the documentary THUNDERBOLTS OF THE GODS last night.  It ties into my studies of the Theory of the Electric Universe.  To understand more about this, watch the documentary.  It’ll melt your mind and maybe create a little enlightenment, too.

This painting study is available for purchase SOLD to Kyle Kniffin, a longtime collector of mine who lives in Sedona, Arizona.  Thanks, Kyle, stoked to send this one to you!

One of my goals with this series is to make original art affordable for those who want it.   If interested in adding tomorrow’s to your collection, please email info@drewbrophy.com or text or call 949-678-8133 asap!

I hope you enjoy this series.  Thanks for reading!
