In 2004, American artist Maria Thomas and her companion Rick Roberts developed a self-help art therapy through the new art form with graffiti-style called “Zentangle”. As the name suggests, the activity of creating these “tangles” (short for Zentangle) has become a “zen” activity, or “yoga for the mind”. It increases focus and creativity, and helps release and relaxation through drawing.
