Joerael has developed a visual and conceptual vocabulary from his direct experience as a yoga practitioner/teacher, activist, traveler, graffiti writer, street artist and as a Texan . Elliott’s intentions as a narrative artist and a teacher of Yoga is to create non-reductive works that cultivate a contemplative space of liberty through living symbolism and the creative unconscious.
