The concept of the evil eye exists in many cultures across the world. In so many ways it is so main stream that it might even be erroneous to call it a superstition! A lot of research later I realize Warding off the evil eye is a big thing. It is on cars and trucks, on new houses and old, outside shops, even in the thickly kohled eyes of innocent children. How could I not paint it?
What started out as very graphic art on kettles and trunks soon found itself on canvas. The entire ‘nimboo mirchi series’ on canvas was my cross over, albeit in a small way onto canvas a few years ago with a more refined fine art approach to a theme that had been a constant in my life the last few years and still continues to be.
