Sugar Skull

This design was inspired by the Mexican tradition of the sugar skull cookie. The sugar skull is a symbol that not only honours those who have passed but also colourfully represents rebirth. This brain represents a rebirth of creativity, education and optimism.


About The Artist

Emanuel Pavao is an award winning mixed media artist who uses non-conventional material to create artwork that explores conventional subject matter. His work takes a closer look at modern society, urban landscapes, social norms, everyday material and cultural symbols. “I believe that the job of an artist is to point a finger at a question and let the viewer come up with the answer.”
