At Ambivalent works we want to deliver art to confuse, arouse, awaken, and disturb a change in you. We believe art isn’t just about superficial decoration, but has the power to capture snapshots of different realities and map a way toward news ways of thinking and being in the world. We seek to create art that helps turn your mind from an enemy into a friend.
