I was asked to come up with a concept to be painted on a 40 foot wall that represented dreams. I did this by making the most prominent element of the art piece mandalas surrounded by various flowers and patterns representing creativity. The mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol representing the universe. The circular designs symbolizes the idea that life is never ending and everything is connected. The mandala also represents spiritual journey within the individual viewer. Mandalas are meant to remove irritating thoughts and allow the creative mind to run free as well as relaxation. This Mural was painted by Patrick Barwinski and I over the course of 3 days. We painted this live during an event and It took a total of 32 hours to execute this massive piece!
