Our paintings honour the Japanese aesthetic Wabi-Sabi. Wabi-Sabi accentuates originality, appreciates both the flourishing and withering of life and objects alike, and celebrates imperfections that make us human and unique. The element of modern minimalism and "imperfect, yet perfectly beautiful" within this philosophy underpins all of our work.
Utilizing combinations of oil paint, acrylic paint, liquid foundation and sumi ink, we create paintings based on quiet observations of our inner desires and spirituality. Our meditation through art has provided us (and our collectors) a way to honour the Wabi-Sabi aesthetic and reflect on mental well-being through an introspective approach.
As artists-of-colour, we believe in art that is inclusive, positive and accessible. In my young student years living in Paris, I could not afford to visit museums and galleries as often as I had hoped to. Hence, it has always been our hope to play a part in increasing the accessibility of art, and to support the uprising of Wabi-Sabi within contemporary artwork.
