WELCOME TO BLK.CAT.BONE!

 

My name is Aaqil Ka. I’m an artist based in Brooklyn, New York. My intention here is to share my work and the processes of creating such work both in technique and reasoning. I also hope to share what I learn as I explore my widely varying interests as an artist, and as a human –everything from nature, culture, technology to social issues…
