Mandala Le Lo Lai

"Mandala Le Lo Lai" is the third in a series of Mandala style paintings each based on aspects of Puerto Rican culture. This particular addition to the series focuses on musical instruments that have become tradional throughout the islands history.

Although I am exploring Puerto Rican themes in this current foray into my ancestral culture, my art is heavily influenced by many cultures including Asian, Indian, American Comic, and animation. The use of extensive geometry, and play on symmetry vs asymmetry is an ongoing study into visual aesthetics.
