Featured Artist: Sebastian Wahl
We’ve been meaning to feature Sebastian Wahl’s crazy collages for months now and since he has a dual solo show (with fellow artist Justin Lovato) opening up – it seems a perfect time. They collaborated on the outstanding piece above together for the exhibition card, we’re just loving the way it makes one’s eyes go all jelly-welly.
Colorful and swirling, eye-candy mysticism forms the basis for his imagery – mused by sacred geometry and shamanic visions. Sebastian channels these inspirations into the form of psychedelic landscapes, iconic, mandalic and spiritual mayhem.
