For over a quarter century, the art that is Ganeshism, has been a distinct practice. A patient study of Ganesha's iconography and symbolism. It has revolved around an ancient Vedic philosophy of self realization, expressed through an art form that has far reaching cosmic significance.
Unwilling to take 'ownership' of the work, Mahen has lovingly shaped Ganeshism into a movement, centered around Ganesha, with a purpose to communicate, through art, the symbolic character which gives the deep inner meanings to his many forms.
Unfortunately, today, religion is often misunderstood. Most deities have been shorn of their philosophical significance and reduced to mere superstition. Ganeshism, as an art form and movement, attempts to create an inward discussion, to debate, question and meditate on the deep truths represented by the symbols. It aims to dispel the singular concept of the 'favour granting god' and focus instead, on the deity, as a mirror to the soul.
