carnival & taavi
carnival and taavi are a dynamic artist couple from new york who inspire each other to experiment and create in a variety of art forms. they began their career together with a musical project named “hōi,” which encapsulates the time period when they met and expressed their love through the language of music. after four years of marriage, they decided to start a family and welcomed their first baby. this new life situation brought about different experiences and challenges in their relationship, leading them to shift their creative expression to visual art. they drew inspiration from paintings and photography, discovering new ways to express their deep connection and love for life.
“when we create together, we find peace, excitement, and curiosity about each other. we resolve our differences without the need for a verbal agreement; it's more like a primal way to communicate and express ourselves.”
