The oh-so-overwhelming Indian weddings! If you have been to one you know what I am talking about. It’s a crazy and hectic but an equally fun affair. So, when asked to create something for a couple who were on the verge of completing ten years of married life, I thought what would be better than saying ‘Shaadi Mubarak’ and refreshing their memories of all the little things that make an Indian wedding. Moments later I had the band, glitter, mehendi, flowers, paisleys, peacocks and all other motifs that are so integral to Indian weddings, pouring on this sheet of paper. They seem to love it.

Another set of exploratory photograms and this is what came out of it. Meadow of Shadows, is what a friend likes to call it. I think the title is quite appropriate keeping in mind what I was trying to do while I was creating it. I hope she hangs it up on her wall soon.

Kiss Kiss Stab Stab is what I like to call this Knave of Hearts playing card which was designed for Cocaine‘s 54 Project. The artwork is my combined take on Alice in Wonderland‘s Knave and  Gustav Klimt‘s, The Kiss. It is a collage of analogue photograms created using darkroom processes on photo-sensitive paper.

Above is a photograph of the work in progress b/w photograms. Check out cards by other artists, here.

An Encyclopedia of Bottles is what I contributed to the Sketchbook Project 2012 (conducted by Art House Co-op). This encyclopedia is a result of my obsession with bottles and it reveals a whole new world of experimentation. Forms, shapes, colors, textures and materials are just a few of all the elements that I have tried to explore through this particular work. It was a lot of fun working on this project and it has helped me build a collection of little fun experiments that I would like to take forward in different directions.

This is what a writer friend had to say about me and the book. Take a look at the encyclopedia in progress, here. Find a digitized copy of this book in the Digital Library of Brooklyn Art Library.

This is a project that I have been at for more than a year now. As the name suggests, the project is aimed at the numerous doodles that I create. It began as a daily doodle activity that I would share with my friends over Facebook, but seeing the overwhelming response of people towards my little pieces of fun, I decided to take it forward. My doodle blog, especially dedicated to the whole body of work, is first in the scheme of other things that are going to unfold as a part of this project.

Bruxism, one of the doodles, got published by ArtMalaysia magazine in their December 2010 issue. Another Malaysian tabloid called KOSMO published the same doodle as a part of Project Raksasa Doodles conducted by Squeak Art Asia. Here’s the online article by KOSMO and the blog post by Squeak Art Asia. Also, some of my other works that were featured by  them.
