Ashwin Jose / Digital Art Alchemist

Ashwin is a multidisciplinary visual artist with a diverse work history in art, design, and animation. His unique Indian heritage combined with a love of western art and media influences inform his artistic process.

Deeply interested in internal transformation, symbolism, and mythology; he is moved to create art that speaks to the inner dimensions of the human experience. He is curious about technology and how artists can adopt it to spread their message. 

 

Artist's Statement

Ashwin Jose (originally hailing from Kerala, India) makes drawings, paintings, and media art. By applying symbolism and visual metaphors Jose creates work that generates diverse meanings. The dichotomy of associations and meanings creates conflict and paintings become the impressions created on the psyche. 

His works demonstrate how life extends beyond our own subjective limits and often paints the picture of the inner transformative journey we have to undertake-- from the depths of the unconsciousness ego to the complete unification with the Self.

This journey is wrought with challenges and dualities we continually construct between Self and Other, between our own ‘bestial’ and ‘civilized’ selves. By demonstrating the omnipresent lingering of the ‘eternal observer’, he tries to dynamically engage the audience to acknowledge their own inner creator and be in complete acceptance of emotional and psychic pain. 

He believes paintings should evoke emotion and should instigate self-inquiry into the nature of forms that develops through differing interpretations. The awareness to see these patterns without being trapped in them is the nature of transformation.

Ashwin Jose currently lives and works in Saint Louis, Missouri.
