ABOUT MEERA ART FOUNDATION
The Meera Art Foundation is a non-profit and common interest foundation that was founded by Svagito Liebermeister after Meera left her body unexpectedly in a tragic accident in February 2017.
The purpose of this foundation is to preserve the art and paintings of Meera Hashimoto for future generations, to make her work available through exhibitions all over the world and to support artists, who work in the field of meditative art.
Meera was a very unique individual, a painter and artist since early childhood on one hand and an art therapist on the other, who could help people to find themselves and their own authentic creative expression in life. She had an immense love for beauty and for people and not only did she create thousands of paintings in various styles in her long career, she also created and was part of many art communities since 1976 and was conducting painting courses and art therapy trainings all over the world.
After coming to the enlightened Master Osho in 1976, her way of painting changed drastically and many of Osho’s books are illustrated with her artwork.
GUARDIANS OF MEERA ART FOUNDATION
Meera left with us so many gifts and her paintings are an expression of her joy and love for Osho and meditation. She would be most satisfied if they could bring a glimpse of happiness and silence into the hearts of those who look at them. This and the discoveries she made while working with people, is her legacy and all those who are part of and support this foundation are keeping this vision alive.
“ I feel Meera put into practise Osho’s message of living one’s life joyfully, totally and passionately. In my view she translated Osho’s message of joy, silence and love into visual art, which is why her paintings are so alive, multidimensional and give you a taste of no mind. They need to be preserved for the future humanity.”
„Stay well and happy“ have been Meera’s last words to me. Being well and happy always was Meera's approach – for her own life including her beloved and friends, as well for the participants of her groups and trainings. She never compromised here – any situation where wellness or happiness were missing she dropped. I am thankful for the friendship and the privilege of organizing Meera’s Ibiza Painting Trainings more than 12 years and assisting for several painting groups in Europe. Well-being and happiness create freedom and inner peace. For this I will put my love and energy into managing events and directing the adminstration of the Meera Art Foundation.
Angela is our Creative Marketeer. This website was made by her with love and the intention of supporting those who wish to experience freedom, meditation and the joy of creativity through Meera's legacy.
"It has been my pleasure and privilege to work with Meera and to learn from her infectious spontaneity and joy for life. The courses she created have touched and changed my life and the biggest gift I received was the mirror of what it truly means to live life with totality and the freedom of self expression without fear or self-censoring... "
It is with deep appreciation of Premendra's love of Meera and her Art that we are able to offer you Meera's work in print. In his words, "It took me considerable time to find out how to translate the subtle vibrations, the energetic details, the depths of the colours, the complex play of light and shade into print technological know-how, so as to come as close as possible to the original". The close friendship between Premendra and Meera goes back many years. For him, Meera’s art is directly connected to Osho, for in her entire oeuvre she expresses Osho’s vision.
