SIDDARTHA is an emerging hip hop artist. His music roars with thematic sounds and open hearted lyrics that illustrates his grief since his brother’s suicide. Demonstrating the dark realities of mental health, his debut project “Reflections of a Stranger” continues his brother’s memory and brings to light the hardship of losing a loved one. His brand is filled with rich symbolism of his brother’s life and carries homage to his Indian heritage.
When brainstorming ideas, Siddartha was committed to incorporating drawings found in his brother’s journal. Together, we wanted to create something that kept his memory alive and also illustrated the aftermath since his death.
The colors, natural elements and lotus shape all draw inspiration from Indian artwork and drawings from his late brother’s journal.
As we continue painting his cover, we plan to spread small lily pads across the muddy waters and embellish the borders with intricate Indian inspired designs.
His album is set to be released in June 2019.
