Rangda and Barong
Inspired from the traditional Balinese mythology, the demon queen warrior; in Indian context Durga and the monster Barong. These two masks represent the eternal battle between good and evil. The good goddess is ferociously strong which is necessary to keep the monster suppressed.
Across a lot of cultures around the world, wall motifs / masks are commonly observed. They sometimes represent mythical creatures, beings, stories about Gods etc. I am fascinated with mythologies around the world. Stories that put us in an inferior light. Makes us believe that there are beings more powerful than us, much more capable, much more idealistic and pure. They depict the villains more evil and selfish than we can possibly imagine. With this they make us humble, introspective and makes us believe in magic of some kind. I take some iconic original forms and modify them into a style of my own. To recreate the stories in a contemporary setting.
