Welcome to my world of art and spirituality, where I had the honor of collaborating with a talented tattoo artist to bring a celestial masterpiece to life. I am the artist behind the Mandala Mural Project that now adorns the ceiling of this unique tattoo studio. This is the story of how we turned a square, plant-filled room into a sacred haven for art and spiritual connection.
We believe that architecture is never neutral but rather carries heavy implications of racial and gender dynamics,’ say Cisem Saglam and Nancy ai, co-designers of this collaborative project titled ‘Meditations on the Harem’. Together, the designers have filled a plain room with interior detailing of stylized mandalas. The transformed room is intended as a space of cultural importance and as a place to initiate conversations on architecture’s influence on social and gender norms.
