Guilford’s stenciled paintings are based on the mandala, a sacred art form significant in Buddhism and Hinduism. Employing graffiti, pop culture, spiritual imagery and political symbolism, his work is a means of self-examination and an exploration of what humans believe, value and hold sacred, both individually and collectively.
