This week’s MotD theme: Mandalas – Hand Drawn
UK artist and designer, Neeka Nagar, of DesignsbyNN.com, hand drew her interesting and unique take on the traditional Yin Yang symbol using pen and ink on black card stock. Very cool! I like how she added the spiral flairs on the right to balance out the minimalness of the left side and the extreme patterned details on the right.
About Neeka from her about page:
I started Designsbynn in November 2013, my goal was to share my love for henna inspired art and develop as a henna and design artist. I love to create henna patterns on a variety of mediums; whether it be on paper or applying it to the skin, no one piece is the same. …
I take inspiration from the world and my surroundings as do all artists, I look to nature and architecture for inspiration and all of these things touch my heart and flow through into every design I create. However most of the inspiration behind my designs comes from my Asian culture. The bold, striking patterns and colours of sari’s and the intricate details in Asian jewellery has a history spanning thousands of years, hopefully I can add my little bit to that history.
About this week’s theme:
This week’s theme focuses on different mandalas and mandala artists posted in the facebook group: Mandalas – Hand Drawn. With so many wonderful pieces to choose from, it makes my job of picking ones to showcase it bit more challenging. I may have to do this theme again. – Maureen 🙂
Inspiration for Today
“For there to be harmony and peace, everything must be balanced. And for there to be balance, there must be equality. And where there is equality, there will be justice. And where justice is honored and preserved, there will always be truth. Eliminate the concept of division by class, skills, race, income, and nationality. We are all equals with a common pulse to survive. Every human requires food and water. Every human has a dream and desire to be happy. Every human responds to love, suffering and pain. Every human bleeds the same color and occupies the same world. Let us recognize that we are all part of each other. We are all human. We are all one.”
