The Temple of Heresy Esoteric Art Collective is a small list of global artists, all ritual magicians, and all with a focus on producing divinely-inspired works.
Being global and mostly online, although we may sometimes work and create together, we do not operate as a traditional art collective.
The aim of the collective is to spotlight and support Temple of Heresy’s collaborators as they work on their own individual forms of artistic expression, as well as when we work on projects together. We also stock some of collective’s material offerings.
This page, the email list, and Temple of Heresy’s social media accounts will be kept updated regularly with activity from the artists listed here—so you can discover their events, stalls, exhibitions, performances and workshops, as well as exciting and enchanting new projects.

Star Sapphire is a San Francisco born and based performer. She loves art and counterculture and allows it to deeply influence her own art and dance.
A thelemite and magician both on and off stage, she uses burlesque as an expression of the divine. She calls this “Stage Magick”, playing up on the name given to illusionary performance and adding the “k” to the end of the word magic, popularised by Crowley to differentiate the two. However, this is real magick in the form of striptease.
