What it means to be an artist – On AudioGyan

I got an email the other day from Kedar Nimkar asking to speak to me. He wanted to do a podcast related to my work. I said sure and then googled the site Audiogyan. And truth be told I got lost in listening to a few podcasts immediately.  There is a rich tapestry of podcasts […]

Keynote Speaker – Legacy School Bangalore

Earlier this month on Saturday, September 16, 2017, I had the honour of delivering the keynote address at Chiaroscuro – Legacy School’s 5th Annual Inter-School Art Competition. It is both a competition and a festival that celebrates Art and Design and brings together budding artists and industry experts. Over the years this unique event has […]

Learnings – The Fusion Projects

August 2017. It’s exactly one year since we launched The Fusion Projects. It seemed a good time to write this post. To commemorate, to celebrate and to share a few learnings with you all. I was all of 19 when I asked to work as an apprentice in a very famous artists studio in Delhi. […]

My friend – Jaytirth Ahya

Jaytirth Ahya. Charming smile. Smart brain. An affable young man. He is the founder of The Experience Company – parent to The Road Trip Experience and The Beach House project. Both of which are companies that design experiences for you. But that seems a rather tame explanation for what these companies do. If you just […]

My friend – Tanya Gupta

Tanya Gupta. Young. Carefree and very opinionated. In a good way. Knows her mind and is not afraid to speak it. I met Tanya at the Beach House Project in march this year at an idyllic week long residency in Fort Kochi. You can read about that trip here. Late nights over good music and […]

My friend – Shreyans Jain

Shreyans Jain. Super achiever. Warm hearted. And really nice. I met Shreyans briefly in Kochi but that conversation over lunch at Pepper House was enough to show me insight into a young man who had a firm head on his shoulders and a very savy idea on how to make money and change some lives […]

My friend – Amit Bhardwaj

Amit Bhardwaj. Tenacious. Focused. In for the long haul. 6Degree.  At one of our first conversations Amit and I got into a long drawn out argument on how to grow our businesses. Over the course of three nights and very vociferous conversations, we finally found an equilibrium. Amit is one of those rare souls who […]

My friend – Manas Kunder

Manas Kunder. Artist. Illustrator. Unassuming. Mad. On a Madtrip. Manas is that guy who I would be happy to spend hours discussing art and life with. Somehow everything about him is calm and non threatening. His art and way of thinking is so different from mine and yet… his sketch book gives me insight into […]

My friend – Rishi Kartik

Rishi Kartik. Quiet. Unassuming. Wild card! Musician and Film Maker. My introduction to Rishi was unassuming and of no seeming significance. He came across as a young man still trying to find himself. Till the introductions happened. And he told us of his history. That first evening with all of us sitting together late into […]
