In a coffee table book no less!

My regular readers will know just how much fun I have at Royal Enfield’s Rider Mania. This last year I went to paint two custom helmets for them and I came back a thousand times richer in the friends I made. Since there were so many people taking pictures/videos and going ‘live’ from the venue […]

New fabric from scraps

Any project involving cloth – whether it be to upholster chairs or make garments or bags – will result in a whole pile comprising of bits and pieces of left over fabric. In the past I have used them to make little charms for the bags I make or even as little tassles for the […]

Sadhu(s) on a plate!

You all know me and re-cycling/ up- cycling! If there is still life left in it – you know I will figure out use for it 🙂 A few years ago (in 2013) I had papered some old melamine plates with pages from my son’s old notebook and then I painted over them. There were […]

It is always a joy and privilege to interact with young minds. I had one such opportunity last month.

I understand there were over […]

It has […]

Trompe l’oeil

Trompe-l’œil (French for “deceive the eye”, is an art technique that uses realistic imagery to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions. I stumbled across artists who use this technique to perfection and after trying my hand at the ‘Chilli Sutra‘ series, I realized something in there could be done […]

Chilli Sutra

My long time readers know I have been painting Nimboo Mirchis for many many years. You all also know that the Kamasutra has featured in my older work on kettles as well. Recently I started a nimboo mirchi painting after a few months and somehow I was just not happy with the way the chillis […]
