Japanese artist Mario Tauchi invites you to join a transcendental trip through the deepest and magical parts of the artist s brain with his incredible MarioMandalas, 108 free-floating cosmic forms in white space.

Discover the magic of nature in art too, as before you swim organic creations inspired by sea urchins, mushrooms, corals and anemones.
This book can appeal to nearly anyone with an interest in art either as a technique or as a finished work, and to adults and children alike, as the MarioMandalas return generous award regardless of technical ability. Perforated pages mean that after or before a work is finished it can be taken out and put up on the wall. Children will be transfixed, and adults too, when they start to colour in, all ages will be creatively encouraged in this artistic collaboration.
Psychiatrist Carl Jung saw the mandala as a representation of the unconscious self, and believed his paintings of mandalas enabled him to identify emotional states and disorders and work towards wholeness in personality. For Jung, this identification of the id, and its transience, was a fundamental tool in his understanding of personality. Dynamically, this volume of MarioMandalas goes beyond a passive recognition of the intricate mandala designs, leading readers to develop their own interpretation of their personality and contribute towards the entity of the mandala form.
Once a mandala has been coloured in and detached from the book, each becomes a unique work of art that has been created in its own colors and design. The final mandala is thus a creation of personal interaction with the artist, and a wider connection with the universal language of color and shape through the unconscious. Beautiful and mesmerising everyone should discover the wonders of the MarioMandala Coloring Book.
