Sultan spent 18 months creating Wallflowers, an ambitious portfolio that used over 150 colors in the screenprinting process. This labor of love solidifies the importance of flowers to Sultan, who described the portfolio as “a systematic exploration of the profound complexity of invention,” and flowers themselves as a “sign of happiness or hopefulness.”

In the descriptive text published with Wallflowers, Sultan stated that flowers are “symbolic, mystical, decorative, threatening, loving, commemorative, funereal, matrimonial, architectural, metaphoric, cartoon-like, deadly, medicinal, dietetic, hallucinogenic, fashionable, unfashionable, artificial, indicative” and that to him, “art is a human made flower existing as a creative gift to the artist and the viewer. The art is basically a way of feeling one’s way in the world.”
