Mookntaka (MOO-kin-tah-kah) is a Brooklyn-based artist duo by Mark Zlotsky and Karyn Lao. It combines their names through the voice of their two-year-old niece: Mook (Uncle Mark) and Taka (Auntie Karyn).
Mark is an artist with an architectural background who infuses design with humor. Karyn is a fiber artist who believes that we are like pompoms — many pieces connected by a common thread. Together, they experiment and produce playful, unusual objects.
Mookntaka personifies the whimsical lens they investigate their surroundings with. It serves as a reminder to find joy in unexpected places and to embrace the silliness and curiosity of our inner child.
