Bongostyle Maa Durga slaying Mahishasur ( buffalo demon) #bongostyletattoo is a custom tailored tattoo style that i have been developing for the past few years.the design style is a melting pot of influences and inspirations from various East Indian (mainly West Bengal and neighboring states) folk art and some contemporary artforms.the subject matter ranges from story telling to purely ornamental.i try to showcase either CONFLICT or COEXISTENCE in my designs , often taking inspiration from  events described in various mythological scriptures and verses and stories that i have grown up hearing.This particular backpiece is a special one because as a Bengali , Maa Durga and her image in form of giant 30 foot clay idols to late great Jamini Roy s paintings , has been a constant source of power and inspiration , even to a lifelong atheist like myself, for Durga is not a goddess for us , she is one of us, part of the family , a culmination of everything that is good in us and everything

In theory, a person as a social being surrounded by other individuals should not experience this feeling. Is it the result of the appearance of social networks and online life for show, or the fact that we have much more information about the world and people that we want to get away from this? For me personally, this has become the main feeling of life and creativity. I didn’t draw, and I thought that I didn’t know how to do it, until I was at one moment at the bottom of the darkest, most drawn and dreary loneliness. Before that, I tried to close the disconnect with the world, communicating with people who were doing something of what I thought, I was never given and never will be. But if it happens that these very people are knocking the soil out from under your feet, then you, like Alice, are flying to the bottom of the same dreary rabbit hole. And that made me who I am now. The more you delve into knowledge, the less you want to communicate with most people and the more necessary it becomes to build your own world. One of my favorite artists, Victor Pivovarov, a representative of Moscow conceptualism, a landmark in unofficial Soviet and then Russian art, in 1975 produced a series of “Projects for a lonely person” that roughly describe a “perfectly lonely” person. I also decided to make a series of illustrations to the philosophical aspects of the consideration of this concept. Still, I'm also a kind of Moscow conceptualist. The second image I will attach the work of Pivovarov.Based on the generalized picture, we can distinguish four images of loneliness: cosmic, cultural, social, interpersonal.So N1:Cosmic loneliness is a person’s experience of his remoteness from the “all-encompassing” essence, which nature, cosmos, and the world can seem to be; God, the "highest mind" '; human history. This refers to the state of mind of a person who realizes that his “life program” remains unrealized, that his personality is not noticed by society, that he has not left “his mark on history”.“ - Everything you say is contradictory. You can't have been in one place and another at the same time. Of all those lives, which one is the right one?- Each of these lives is the right one! Every path is the right path. Everything could have been anything else and it would have just as much meaning.”– Mr. NobodyThank you Daniel for the trust and complete freedom with your idea! “The mindset of how I see myself has changed, from “being” to “becoming” as I know I’m not limited to whatever I am right now. I’d like to be reminded that I can always be a better version of myself if I keep working on it, while I’m in peace with my current state.” Project was done a few months back while I was visiting home in Hungary.

I have been torn between the decision of excelling in this physical reality, and doing everything in my power to make my time here on Earth truly incredible. Or to dedicate my life to the exploration of the universe found within, however this would result in excluding myself off to the world around me. After trying the latter for a year I came to the realisation that I need to find a balance, I discovered that love is at the core of both paths but one cannot work without the other, there is a symbiosis at work. I need to find a way to do both…”– ElliotThank you Elliot for the beautiful thoughts, your trust and complete freedom with your idea!
