Taming Monkey Mind

Acrylic and varnish on canvas, 2017

"Taming Monkey Mind" was inspired by today's society, the society of restlessness. Our mind is occupied by so many subjects and activities. We think so much about the past and worry so much about the future. We are similar to monkeys who jump from branch to branch, unable to be still for long.

We forget about the "Present"..."The right here, right now moment"

My work explores the way a relationship between meditation and painting can lead to a better state of mind.
