Artists: Derek Allison & Dylan Koszegi
Where did you two draw inspiration from to create this piece?
Our inspiration for this piece stems from the love of Earth and life itself. Vivid color refraction is how we perceive life as we know it. Mushrooms and mycology are vital to our ecosystems and insanely beneficial for the human mind, in many ways!
What is the most fun part about collaborating?
Being able to mesh our styles together perfectly in the areas we excel the most. Each day is a surprise as to where our imaginations will go. There is never a dull moment in the studio!
What is your connection to mushrooms?
All of our connections to mushrooms as a whole go very deep. From a young age, we were both blessed to be born in Michigan into some of the best mushroom foraging lands in the country. Dylan would spend much of his free time in nature foraging as a kid, which catalyzed a passion for mycology and nature – while Derek just loves their shape and abundance of color!
