Bubi Canal’s ‘Special Moment’ series looks to tribalism for its visual inspiration. The image series captures the artist’s sculptural creations that are made from a mix of plastic and wood materials

Measuring 18" by 24" in size, Bubi Canal’s lambda portrait prints entrance their viewer with a range of sculptural elements that resemble traditional tribal totems and symbols.

The subjects of the artist’s image series sport tribal-themed headdresses and jewelry pieces that are made from discarded toys and other found elements. These sculptural creations are showcased in a palette of vivid hues and explore the theme of sentiment.

These re-purposed and seemingly meaningless items are given a new life and transformed into pieces of idols for a modern generation. Stats for Symbolic Tribalism Captures Trending: Older & Mild
