Mulyana is an Indonesian artist whose art practice involves working with the local community to create his large scale knit underwater scenes. Mulyana knits an octopus alter ego and says he chose the octopus because it has many hands and Mulyana would like to be a helping hand to others. Today we will be taking inspiration from Mulyana and creating underwater creatures and habitats of our own using textiles. Work together with a teaching artist or new CMA friend to build your world. How can we help others in the art-making process? How can our squishy soft sculptures represent a welcoming place?
