Bored of mandalas? We just might change your mind

The mandala craze has picked up more than ever, with every artist trying their hand at it at least once. Besides being pleasant to look at (oh the symmetry…), the process of drawing a mandala is calming as well, which makes it the perfect tool in therapy. Mandala as a type of art originated from the spiritual symbol in Hinduism, which represents the universe. So it’s no wonder that there’s a poetic allure to mandalas when you set your eyes on them.

Seasoned artists, though, have taken the art of mandala one step – or maybe a leap – further. Mandalas that are colorful…

And manadalas that break the ordinary confines altogether…

We reserved @bronwynlundberg’s mandalas for last. What a time to be alive.
