Austin Osman Spare
"Austin Osman Spare was an artist, philosopher and occult magician. Like Aleister Crowley with whom he had a brief association, Spare was a genius in his own time unappreciated and vilified by a society that could little understand him. His was the inspiration that led to the formation of the 'Illuminates of Thanateros' (IOT) in England in the late 1970’s and the practice of what is now known as 'Chaos Magic' " - quote source

I last posted about Spare nearly four years ago and it's about time I posted more of his art. His art is difficult to find and if anyone knows where I can find more, please share the link in the comments, thanks!
