by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Centered around meditation and prayer, his surreal artworks integrate masks and musical instruments to create a ritualistic atmosphere. Long hair, textiles and threads connect the various forms in his work, melding shapes with ease like dipping one’s toes in a cool pool of still liquid. Take a look at some of Horoiwa’s paintings below.
