About the artist:
Born and raised in Manitou Springs, Co. Muji Rieger began to acquire his arts education at an early age. As a local rapscallion child, he would bother local artists in their studios, offering to assist in exchange for tutelage. In his youth he left home and studied Arabic Calligraphy and sat in seclusion with the Sarwari Qadri Sufi Order. Upon his return to Colorado, Muji co-founded the Knob Hill Urban Arts District as its Executive Director. The images Muji invokes in his work invite comfort to the disturbed and disturb the comfortable with notions ranging from chaos theory to carnal raw emotion. His work highlights and harnesses the cracks and imperfections that exist in nature to create evocative images that appeal not just to the eye, but to the viewer’s primal definition of beauty.
