A mosaic from the Kif mountains of northern Morocco supplies the foundation for this hypnotic photo-study. The artist reworked the design by dropping and adding colors, then gave the entire work a distressed effect using UV inks. The result is a bohemian feel that recalls vintage Morocco.
For this series, the artist collected wood from older white barns across the United States and carefully selected each piece for a specific image. Given the wood’s age and previous use, it is likely to have irregularities such as knots, stains, or an uneven surface. These imperfections add character and patina to this fine work of art. No piece will look the same - making them truly one of a kinds.
A visionary artist, Parvez Taj creates uniquely evocative works for the wall. Taj freely mixes media, including photography, software, and acrylics, to achieve his bold effects. He works with UV-cured inks and recycled wood, often reclaimed from rural buildings throughout the U.S., to minimize his impact on the environment. Taj was born in Canada and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. His works are entirely made in California.
