BHNY Hanuman

This is one of several murals in Be Here Now Yoga & Wellness, a yoga studio in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Washington, DC. The owners requested three Hindu gods - Ganesha, Shiva, and Hanuman, and a tree of life, all inspired by the style of Gustav Klimt. To design each god's mural, I researched Klimt's artwork as well as Hindu iconography and stories. Please scroll to see an info sheet about these details.

The Hanuman mural is composed in a very direct play off of Klimt's Beethoven Frieze, a mural painted in honor of Beethoven at the 14th Vienna Secessionist Exhibition. Parts of it are very famous, though the whole piece is difficult to find pictures of. Essentially, I've painted a mural honoring Klimt via his mural honoring Beethoven, which depicts Hanuman honoring Rama and Sita.
