Why I do what I do

This website will give you a glimpse into my work as an artist,  community builder and activist. I have been negotiating the world through the lens of a creative entrepreneur for the last two decades. It's been a wonderful journey with a lot of learning and collaborating with people I deeply respect.
In the coming years, I believe that creative thinkers will be crucial to document, stitch, hold and present the world. We are at the very edge of collapse on one side, and of a future that can spin out into unimaginable wonders on the other. I believe we can get to the happier side by working together!

AN EXHIBITION OF DRAWINGS CURATED BY GIRIDHAR KASNIS

Girls, I am interested and excited to go see this show. I thought we could use this blog also to post in things of interest that are happening in the art scene in the cities that we live in. Especially those that we go to. I will also post in my thoughts on the show once Ive been there.

The opening for this one is tmrw. I hope that the next curated show of this type has my drawings in it :)

Review:
Very quickly – I think the idea of the show was super interesting. I do believe that it might have been more educational (if that is a criteria) to have had a small sample that explains the work style of the artist exhibited. Ie. that perhaps even a small print of a painting by the artists whose drawing was on display. This would have made for a more inside-the-head-of-the-artist thing.
The other thing I felt was that some of the artists represented were not really into the drawing aspect of things. Perhaps less structured works could have been selected.
