Flag of Honor

Sunday Mahaja's avatar Sunday Mahaja

As a proud small town artist, I mostly see myself as a storyteller mainly because I get inspired by peoples story and the world around me, I experiment with various ideas raging from re-depicting historic events and moment, by giving my audience a new perspective to see. I love to play around with discarded metals and given it a new life. FLAG OF HONOR Dedicated to the men and women who have fought and those still fighting in the front line for freedom, justice, and peace; also to those who work for equal rights and justice for all. As an artist, I enjoy exploring every aspect of art. I sometime capture historic moments or events and depict it in my own way to give my viewers a different way to see and interact with the moment. I work primarily with found metals and upcycled materials. For the most part my work tend to hold beauty alongside with humor and functionality. The flag of honor is inspired by the iconic photograph taken by Joe Rosenthal on February 23, 1945, depicting the United State Marines raising the U.S flag on Mount Suribachi. Battle of Iwo Jima, in WW II.
