A collection of NFT & non-NFT digital art available for purchase via various platforms.
ELEMENTAL NFT SERIES
This series of elemental mandala collages were created during a time filled with emotional turmoil. Inspired by a Buddhist meditation practice called Metta Bhavana (Loving Kindness); I embarked on the creation of these four collages, with the objective of transmuting through creative practice, this unskillful yet natural emotional state of mind, into love, kindness and forgiveness – for the self and the other. In researching Buddhist iconography and associated symbolic meaning, homage was payed to the source of this Metta practice, by incorporating the five Buddhas with their associated correlational properties:
Akshobhya = Blue = Water = Dawn
Ratnasambhava = Yellow = Earth = Noon
Amitabha = Red = Fire = Sunset
Amoghasiddhi = Green = Air = Midnight.
Vairochana = White = Space = Timeless
** The 5th Buddha is incorporated around the circumference of the four collages.
Available via ASYNC as a time-based NFT slideshow rotation synced to the associated 4 quarters of the day.
THIS IS NOT A TEST NFT SERIES
This collection of NFT’s is comprised of a series of 198 still frames extracted from a live-stream VJ performance by VJ Mandala, called ‘This is not a test.. v11’. These performances were a part of a whole series of live-streams created during the viscous Melbourne lockdowns of 2021.
Hand selected images were extracted via editing software for their compositional uniqueness as stand alone images, images that would normally be somewhat undetectable whilst watching original animated streams. No further adjustments have been made to images – they are as they were originally generated.

The entire ‘This is Not a Test’ and other NFT collections are available via Opensea.

SPECMAN NFT SERIES
These AVJ music video NFT’s are taken from a 1hr live-stream event which was a collaboration between Paul Derons (Spectralias aka Enclave) and Adem Jaffers (VJ Mandala). Paul was located in his comfy apartment in St Kilda, streaming his live performance via Mixcloud. The audio stream was picked up via browser in Coburg by VJ Mandala where visuals were mixed to sound then streamed back out onto the Machine fbk page.
