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.

This here is a poster that I designed and created for a friend who was recently going to embark upon a new and joyful journey in his life. He is someone who is always brimming with life and passion and someone who carves out his own ways in pretty much everything he does. I think the poster does justice to him and his patterns.
