David Arkenstone Barnett - Artist - Ufologist - Lecturer - Atlantian
David Arkenstone Barnett is a professional photographer, painter, lecturer and singer. David lives in Kaiapoi, just north of Christchurch, New Zealand. David is originally from London, England and from an early age was submerged in the spiritual world through his parents. They all immigrated to NZ in the 80’s. David is predominantly known in NZ for his work in Ufology, a path that opened to him over 33 years ago whilst serving in the NZ Navy where the ship he served on had a unique close encounter with a USO (Unidentified Submerged Object) out in the Pacific Ocean, an experience which had a profound effect on David and ultimately his direction in life, which has been one of self-discovery, personal development and research.
Alongside his passion for Ufology, David has been researching the fabled city of Atlantis and has come up with a profoundly new hypothesis on this legendary civilization which incredibly, includes New Zealand. He now regularly lectures on this subject which is an insightful, succinct, and informative presentation explaining both scientifically and spiritually what Atlantis was, its purpose, its current location and what became of it. In his lectures he explains what is occurring on our planet right now and in the future from an energy and harmonic perspective, and how Atlantis is once again rising.
As well as lecturing, David professionally paints and exhibits his artwork in both galleries and regional exhibitions throughout the year. As an artist, his artwork reflects many of his Atlantean beliefs and can be seen as being a major influence over his range of paintings known as the 'Atlantis Rising', ‘Constellation’ and ‘Shining Ones’ series. These are David’s experiences, and this is his story.
