1 Chakra: NBC – Yamaha
1 Chakra: NBC – Yamaha
I use various elements of consumer culture such as corporate logos and product wrappers to create pattern-based artwork.

I like to set the symbology of corporate culture against the iconography of more traditional belief systems.

Sometimes, I use the form of the circle or mandala to set logos into a sacred or ritualistic context.

I often use traditional or labor-intensive image-making methods to offset the mass-produced nature of the imagery.
