Are you looking for me? I am in the next seat.
My shoulder is against yours.
you will not find me in the stupas, not in Indian shrine
rooms, nor in synagogues, nor in cathedrals:
not in masses, nor kirtans, not in legs winding
around your own neck, nor in eating nothing but vegetables.

When you really look for me, you will see me instantly –
you will find me in the tiniest house of time.

Kabir says: Student, tell me, what is God?
He is the breath inside the breath.

“The river that flows in you also flows in me.”

- Kabir

Moonassi’s black-and-white images are simple yet powerful, created as an homage of sorts to the negative space commonly seen in oriental art. At the same time, his images also channel the Buddhist philosophy of “emptiness”. Unlike Western culture, the Buddhist idea of “emptiness” doesn’t hold any negative connotations, but instead represents infinite possibilities and an “awakened mind.” Moonassi’s minimal style allows his art to be easily accessible to a wide audience. Yet, the alluring sense of mystery that his surreal world gives off beckons them to look beyond the surface of his art.

Do good to others, all honours are thine;

The Divinity above will reward you for sure.

Alas, innumerable are those that know not

This simple path to the Divine;

And they slip down, ever and ever.
