“Our mission is to bring greater awareness to the Beauty of our World.”

Founded in 1995 by author, painter, and award-winning filmmaker, D. A. Metrov, Lightmasters Arts & Entertainment is dedicated to creating art—film, literature, and paintings—that raise awareness of the beauty in our world. We believe that heightened awareness of beauty leads to a greater appreciation of our environment. Greater appreciation of our environment inspires more action to preserve and protect it. More positive action leads to less destruction, less waste, less toxicity, less disease, less expense, the sum of which results in GREATER PEACE, HEALTH, & PROSPERITY FOR ALL.

“Novel Cancer Recovery Method—Antidote for Armageddon?”

SANTA BARBARA, CA (March 28, 2017) — Eight years ago, artist/author, D. A. Metrov, diagnosed with a rare and highly aggressive prostate cancer, was given less than a month to live—even with treatment. Now, happy, thriving, and fit, his unique recovery principles are being widely adapted as the family-oriented “NU Sustainability Project for Achieving Maximum Health of Mind, Body, & Planet.”

According to Metrov, eldest of nine from sleepy Ontario, CA, who went on to garner acclaim as celebrity portrait artist, Hollywood screenwriter, and novelist, “Massive doses of chemo and radiation temporarily saved my life. Still, I faced threat of recurrence and potentially lethal side-effects. I became a health expert to save my life. Since I’m still here eight years later, I’m going to go out on a limb and deduce I must have gotten something right… something that can hopefully help others.”

The sustainability project began with Metrov’s SAGA OF NU (the first Instagram eco-novel), whose protagonist, the Creature NU, traverses America to find out what’s gone wrong. Metrov’s Creature encounters lifestyle diseases, carcinogens in the environment, food toxicity, information deluge, heightened stress, fear, deceit, and corruption. His solution? “Fix yourselves, one person at a time, and the world will follow,” says the Creature. “Your reality will always be a reflection of your mind.” The timely online narrative quickly garnered an army of sustainability-minded youth and their organic/vegan moms.

In his new publication, BOOK OF NU - 10 Simple Habits to Literally Save Yourself & Your Planet, the author offers a succinct breakdown of his principles for integrated health. “The environments of our inner and outer eco-systems are inextricably bound, therefore must be nurtured as a whole,” says Metrov.

Dr. Patricia Bragg, legendary health pioneer, and maker of Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, is a huge fan. “BOOK OF NU is wonderful! Everyone can learn something. I want the whole world to read it!” Recently lauded by Katy Perry as “her Health Queen,” Dr. Bragg is considered the Grand Dame of the Modern-Day Health & Nutrition Movement. (left: Bragg with Metrov)

Metrov adds, “What we’re seeing in the world today, particularly in government, are the last, desperate attempts to save a dying system. But evolution won’t be stopped. We’re transitioning from fear to a love-based society… shifting back to a matriarchal approach to life, restoring harmony with Nature and each other.”

Metrov Contemporary Arts, home of the NU Sustainability Project, employs local artists and student interns to produce NU teaching materials as well as museum quality fine art paintings & sculpture. Our Mission: To Teach the 10 Principles for Sustainable Mind, Body, & Planet to Young People Worldwide. Learn more about NU Sustainability Project and BOOK OF NU at: www.DoYouNU.com.

ANATOMY OF A WEREWOLF (with vintage photographs from the ’70′s) (Biographies & Memoirs)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: This book is a departure from Metrov’s usual steampunk-fantasy novels. It is essentially a very unusual type of memoir from his life in New York City and Los Angeles in the 1970′s. It interweaves three separate story lines: 1) Diary entries from his work as a maintenance man in a Mexican ghetto building 2) Reflections of his previous life as an artist and screenwriter 3) His screenplay for a werewolf movie. Film critic, Brad Stevens sums it up nicely in his "Forward" below...

Description: Four frightened steam-driven, robotic dolls—a dancer, a clown, a Spartan warrior, and a Tibetan monk—go on a quest to rescue their creator, genius inventor, Thaddeus Pennybrook, who’s being held hostage by criminals. Traveling through a strange and threatening world, the dolls’ hardships teach them not only how to survive, but what it means to be a humanoid. By fulfilling their impossible mission, they inadvertently renew their creator’s lease on life.
MACHINE OF GOD (Illustrated with Leonardo’s own drawings) (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: MACHINE OF GOD chronicles the little-known journey of Leonardo da Vinci’s Macchina Fantastica, the ingenious trade vessel he designed and built for King Louis XI of France which, against all odds, traversed the land, sea, and air between Naples and Paris, only to fall into a pile of ashes within a mile of its destination. This rollicking, yet intelligent yarn will appeal to boys (of all ages), and the women who love them.

“What you seek you shall never find.
For when the Gods made man,
They kept immortality to themselves.
Fill your belly.
Day and night make merry.
Let Days be full of joy.
Love the child who holds your hand.
Let your wife delight in your embrace.
For these alone are the concerns of man.”
