Andy Colvin is a West Coast artist, photographer, and writer who has been called "his generation's Charles Fort," due to his intensive documentation of synchronicities in relation to paranormal and conspiracy research (i.e., "synchromysticism" and "synchroconspiracy"). Following in the footsteps of Fortean author John A. Keel, Colvin has blazed a 21st Century trail of investigation into mysteries that have plagued mankind for centuries, such as UFOs, creature entities, magic, and the creative workings of the human mind. Colvin's approach is unique in that it blends a background of genuine paranormal experience with decades of research into parapolitics, art history, media behavior, and social psychology. His understanding of symbology has, at times, allowed Colvin to connect dots that previously escaped attention.
In the 1960s, on a West Virginia backroad, Colvin and his family and friends had encounters with the entity popularly known as "Mothman." Following those encounters, Colvin found that he could draw, sing, and take pictures, and that he had a photographic memory. Colvin was recognized as a prodigy, and was eventually offered a scholarship to Harvard University. While in college, Colvin broke ground in several then-new disciplines, such as guerilla art, performance art, and "shamanic conceptual" art. In the early 1980s, Colvin made a splash in the New York art world by taking on the persona of "Whiz," a master of "collaborative art." This unique approach allowed Colvin to actually work in some manner with several notable artists.
