The artistic style ‘Cosmic Impressionism’ has been around for some time and continues to grow in popularity. Not meant as a technically accurate depiction, it offers the viewer an impressionistic experience inspired by the wonders of space. In her latest column, Nicole Stott showcases this style and the beautiful work of three artists.

Ifeel blessed to have had the opportunity to spend some time living and working in space, to paint in space, and now to share my spaceflight experience through my artwork. I’m also thankful to be able to communicate a love of space and art and science through my regular column here in ROOM. I feel like I’m actually living a ‘Space for Art’ life.

In this issue I’m focusing on a particular style of the space art genre called ‘Cosmic Impressionism’ (aka swirly space art) that has been around for quite a long time and seems to be growing in popularity.
