OUT OF THE ORDINARY

 

HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK?

Simple and ridiculously mundane with a spoonful of wit.

WHAT DOES YOUR ART FOCUS ON?

Our art mainly focuses on the remarkably ordinary things in life that one would presumably often overlook, we take this phenomena and strive to look at it from a different light and giving it the attention it needs. By incorporating simpleeverydaymaterials,onecaneasilyrelate to the familiarity and interpret the piece in their own way, hence appreciating the little things that go unnoticed.
