King Felix II from the series King Felix, 80 X 80 acrylic on linen [Poznań 2012]

 

 

 

 

 

KING FELIX is the codename by which the main character of the novel Valis communicates with God. As the alter ego of Philip K. Dick himself, he coexists in the novel with the author, who included in the text part of the exegesis revealed to him in mystical dreams during the 70s.

The novel Valis made a huge impression on me. The painting King Felix II is a metaphor of waiting for divine communication.
