Ink on wood panel.
Diversity in the words we hear
Window to our past
Each year we form layer by layer
Housing the creatures miscast
Growth divided amongst tempered souls
Lucid vivid contrast
Resilience in each movement
Hope of an enthusiast
Our adventure must have brought us
To the coral reef at long last.
- Emily Minor | MAINĀ
I am Mainā, a Toronto based artist, though I draw my inspiration from the world over. As an artist, I use both painting and poetry to radiate the euphoric madness that is life, lust and love. I lost myself to chaos for many years and through my art, I was found. With this artwork I aspire to help people see the true beauty in the chaos and madness that surrounds us, and to thrive from it. There is much serenity to be discovered in the vividness and intensity of the world's colors.
