A simple definition of Space art is that it is a form of art associated with outer space. Visualised through their creations, artists have taken us in to space long before space craft landed there.* These artists have been inspired with the ideas and knowledge of the unknown universe that surrounds us.

They are using the cosmos to visualise and promote space travel in unique and beautiful ways.* Every artist appears to have their own stylistic path but all have the power to inspire.

From stars, galaxies, planets, detailed air craft, Space art varies from hard-edged graphic arts realism to fine art abstractionism. Regardless of the style all are truly unique, detailed and breathtaking images that open our eyes to the beauty of the unknown above us.
