Covenant & MOTIV
I’m MOTIV (Michael Mara), a graphic artist and designer from Victoria, BC, Canada. Born in Victoria and raised on the mainland I’m the son of a Hawaiian reggae musician/army vet and an Irish-Canadian psychologist – which says a lot if you know me.
Covenant Apparel provides an outlet for my experiments in the mystic, the dark, the strange, and the defiant.
I’m inspired by pre-industrial, pre-Christian, pre-colonial art and iconography, street art and graffiti, graphic design, traditional and modern apparel design, and pre-colonial and modern tattoo art.
I’ve been drawing symbols on things I shouldn’t since I was a toddler and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
