Salmagundi Black & White Exhibition

Sometimes you just gotta let your imagination run while and create something that's totally imaginative. I wanted to see if I can x-ray a butterfly with exoskeleton shooting out of its body.

So I started with black and white ink drawing of a butterfly and added watercolor of strange bone growth here and there and voila. Exhibited at Salmagundi's Black and White Exhibition. 

Then somehow this became the blueprint for my 3D printed exoskeleton fancy clutch

Original art print on stretched canvas is for sale here on Saatchi Art

UK's Chester Art Fair

I was one of only a handful of finalists selected by VAO to present my art at Chester Art Fair in Chester, UK 2017. The city is an ancient yet beautiful Roman city boasting its own Cathedral and parts of its original Roman wall. I was beyond excited to be presenting my Dukkha II original print there. Even though I didn't win the final top price, I still had a wonderful time as Chester Art Fair truly gave you a sense of a supportive artist community.
