Official homepage of MIND TRIP STUDIO, founded by mixed-media artist Galen Olson.

Galen found inspiration from space and astronomy, and ran with the idea of building his own universe through various styles of paintings. His art reflects the imagination of the unknown, his love of planet Earth, and the love and pain he has felt throughout his existence. Galen loves to work with mixed media, but used his platform with "Galen's Workshop" to practice other styles of art creation through experimentation. Growing up in Vancouver, Washington, he attended the Vancouver School of Arts and Academics, and experimented with many forms of art, including music, theatre, and dance. Over time, he discovered his passion for filmmaking and photography. He graduated in 2008 and attended the Art Institute of Portland for film and video. Ultimately, he could not afford to continue on with his courses, and fell on hard luck after a serious of creative failures. Taking a break for several years, he later started up again in 2016, focusing on his visual art skills. This is when he discovered his love for art all over again. He created "Galen's Workshop" (formally "The Workshop") in 2020 during the pandemic as a way to mix his love of creating art with his skills and passion for video making and editing. Six seasons later, he is still at it!

GALEN'S WORKSHOP, currently in its sixth season, is an online art-creation series on YouTube, Instagram,

and Tik Tok. The series documents the creation of Galen's work from start to finish through fast motion.


THE COSMIC DESIGN SHOW is Galen's new show premiering January 2023,

mixing his love of sci-fi and space astronomy with art creation and pressure challenges.
