A new curated online art platform that is being launched in Bombay, and which was featured in yesterdays Sunday Midday (Yay! And my drawing was on the cover! See above)
There will be a launch party and art exhibition sometime at the end of September.
I’ve sent some digital prints to sell for the launch exhibition by post. I only hope it gets there in time.
(Crossed finger and toes)
Lots of interesting, young, desi artists who aren’t all total fuddy-duddies. (Is that bad? To say fuddy-duddies. Should I be more politically correct and say traditional artists? My observation of the bigger Indian painters is a tad limited but is as follows: Use shades of browns, be abstract, chuck in a indian woman with a pot. If in doubt, always stick an Indian woman holding pot in your painting. If you object to the pot, replace with child. Indian woman holding child.)
I especially love the street murals of Jas Charanjiva, who was also featured above. Bandra has never looked so interesting as it does now. (Lots of street art, murals, hidden gems. Riddhi took me on a rickshaw street art tour a couple of years ago. Someone should organise those regularly.)
I really never know how to answer these Q&A’s in a proper arty-farty way.
