Kimo Arbas


J. Kimo Arbas’s works bring together the realms of technology, art and spirit. They mirror his deeply-felt belief in the sentient interconnectedness of the all. They are inspired by the reality of spaces that link conscious beings; their connections through those spaces to each other; continuums between past and future, hidden and revealed, inner and outer worlds.
