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.

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…

Mandalas that are trippy…

And manadalas that break the ordinary confines altogether…

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

 
If you’re an artist, we hope this post inspired you. And if you’re someone who can’t draw for shit like us? Join us, we can wallow in our mediocrity together.
