Sons of Satya (2006)

Jet Martinez, Kelly Ording, Clarion Alley, 2014

“Sons of Satya”, the elephants piece, was one of Kelly and I’s first collabos.  Painted around the time of our marriage, the piece depicts Indian wedding elephants strolling through the jungle.   This mural is more of an exercise in collaboration than a deeply conceptual piece. The piece is a celebration of love and an attempt to create something lush, rich and beautiful in a context (the alley) which, at the time it was painted , was quite the opposite.
