Our Tricycle Talk today is with legendary fine art, tattoo, and graffiti artist Mike Giant, half of the team behind clothing brand Rebel8 and the current Tricycle issue’s featured Buddhist in This Buddhist Life. I had over an hour long conversation with Giant for This Buddhist Life, but as it tends to happen, it was cut to the six-question interview you may or may not have already read (if you haven’t, it’s here). Needless to say, there was a whole lot of Giant that wasn’t captured in the magazine, not to mention his artwork. So here is, for your auditory pleasure, Giant speaking about how Buddhism and mindfulness practice has seeped into the way he creates his art. And enjoy his Buddhist-influenced work below.
