GANESH: God of New Beginnings, Success and Wisdom. The Remover of Obstacles.

SilverStreetz unleashes another large, painted panel tapping into Hindu religion. 


SilverStreetz mentions, "In this piece 'GANESH', I really wanted the viewers to get a true sense of energy and flow. Everything in this piece is moving with vibrant colors along with it.  Ganesh is the remover of obstacles and with that mythology you can create any story you want out of it which is why I love it so much".


While waiting out the Covid quarantine, SilverStreetz took to the streets of the LA Arts District.  Using the back drop of Hauser & Wirth he was able to capture some incredible shots of his latest piece.



After creating a fully rendered Photoshop version of his piece 'GANESH', he was compelled to bring it to life with acrylics on a 4' x 8' hard board.  The same size and framing as his last piece, BALI.  When asked if there was any significance to the colorful background he employed, SilverStreetz says, "For me, the colorful streams surrounding him are his energy and consciousness as he battles the obstacles with his golden crown and dagger".

Exploration Of Indonesian Roots And Culture X SilverStreetz

Los Angeles -- SilverStreetz unleashes his most vibrant and color saturated 4' x 8' to date.  "BALI", is a mural depicting three Barong Fish which drip in bright acrylic blues, screaming yellows, and loud purples, reds, and greens.  The piece is painted on 1/4" hardboard and framed by black stained redwood.



This piece marks SilverStreetz's first exploration into his Indonesian roots and culture.  As he puts it, "Bali", "is supposed to give viewers a little insight into Indonesian culture as well as Hindu faith.  Bali, which is a province of Indonesia, is like a 'Hindu hub'. This is where I found inspiration for one of their Gods, the Barong Fish -- which is the prominent figure in this piece."




SilverStreetz has become synonymous with bright and playful hues.  "Bali" is undeniable proof of his attention to bold and vivid color.  "The Barong Fish is king of the spirits and leader of the hosts of good.  This is why I put the most traditional and most vibrant Barong Fish at the top, as he's leading the good," says SilverStreeetz.  "Although the top Barong Fish is the most vibrant, I wanted this piece to be vibrant as a whole and I wanted all the characters to have one similar skin color; blue. I thought blue would be a great color because it symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence and intelligence, which in essence, are all traits the 'good' must have."
