About the painting: The Urban contemporary style of Craig Anthony Miller has shed another view on the popular deity Lord Ganesh (aka Ganapati). In the past four years, Ganapati: the remover of obstacles and the great lord of success, has become a staple in CAMs paintings. Originally becoming intrigued with the deity after a friends introduction. Out of the many Deities, CAMs connection to Lord Ganesh has become the one image that he still attached to.

Medium: Mixed media, tribal graphic that takes on the inspiration of stained glass. CAM has been painting the image of Lord Ganesh since 2007. It has become a signature of his Brooklyn studio and he has been commissioned numerous times to create the image for personal meditation spaces.

Dimensions: 55″ x 38″ on wood.

Bidding starts at $500 and will commence this evening at 7pm.

About CAM: The art of Brooklyn native, Craig Anthony Miller aka “CAM”, is an exploratory process, mapping shapes into images that repetitively convey messages of strength triumphing over despair. Initially influenced by stained glass art and the street art and graffiti dominating NY’s boroughs, CAM employs his graphic training to create work that explores far, distant lands and tribal warriors stealthily transplanted into layered urban landscapes. For years the ongoing theme known as the “Warrior Within” has since morphed into the popular Hindu Deity, Lord Ganesh, a now major symbolic form of CAM’s work. CAM’s latest incantation of “Be Mindful of Your Ability to Fly” and the term “A Single Dove,” has segued into a new path of “yogic” warriors and the reintroduction of figurative painting in an ever growing popular Yoga community within an urban context. The simple and complex construction of the body is more expressionism over the association /connection to body, mind and spirit.

CAM also has an Etsy store, where you can purchase very cool t-shirts and prints.
