Sidhartta was born and raised in a multicultural family of artists in Costa Rica. His mother is Costa Rican, his father is from El Salvador and his grandmother was a Japanese Buddhist (hence, his name). His family immigrated to Costa Rica during El Salvador's decade-long civil war. Sidhartta loves art and the work he does specifically, because he feels it is a great way to stay creative. Through art, he finds new ways to see and understand life. His current goals are to learn how to turn his waste products into art. This is what you see in his new collection of spray paint bottle lamps. You can find Sidhartta's work in high-end galleries as well as on the streets of San Jose.
