. Mandalas, which evolved from the teachings of ancient Hinduism and Buddhism, are complex representations of spiritual or ritualistic symbols, often representing the totality of the universe. In contemporary times they have become generic terms for any diagram, formation or geometric pattern that can represent the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically which are designed in a geometric, repetitive pattern.
This Portland-based artist creates botanically-inspired mandalas, which he sensitively renders with pen and ink washes. Come view David’s art during his three month-long exhibit in the Eco Hub!
