Monarch pattern mandala, oil on canvas, 20”x20″


1 in stock


These two “Moth” and “Monarch” are experiments with pattern mandala. All digital drawing software has a function called Symmetry axis which allows you to draw a mandala efficiently. I designed these two patterns in software first then painted them on canvas. To me, nothing replaces the feeling of actual oil paint. 😀 As you can see from the name, these are inspired by monarch butterfly and Cecropia Moth.

I painted all edges of the canvas black and installed hardware so it is ready to hang. The painting is protected by a piece of semi transparent glassine paper. I tape it with blue painters’ tape. That is what you see in the photo.

Although I have tried my best to match the color of digital profile and the actual product, the color might still vary depending on different monitor settings. Please be aware of this fact.

I hope you enjoy this series.

Please message me for any question.
Thank you.

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
