Nick Pedersen is an illustrator based out of Brooklyn, New York, USA. Today, EK spotlights Pedersen’s illustration series, “Sumeru”, depicting the road to becoming a Zen Master.

Pedersen has exhibited his work in galleries internationally, including the Museum of Russian Art, The Slingluff Gallery (USA), and Copper Palate Press (USA) among many others.

“Sumeru is a body of work that metaphorically illustrates the mental journey that is undertaken in Zen Buddhist training and practice. In Zen literature, the word ‘land’ is commonly used as a symbol for the ‘mind’, and through a series of photographic montage images I have envisioned an exploration into the depths of this metaphorical ‘mind-world’. The narrative follows a spiritual quest as the storyline symbolically wanders through various states of consciousness and perceptions.”
