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!

A bond with the Rhino!

November 17th, 2010

Well the second painting in the series is completed. As I mentioned its inspired by the Rhino Circle (or ‘Genda’ Circle, genda meaning rhino in Hindi… as its popularly known as..) Its quite amazing to see this sculpture about 12-15 feet horizontally and height about 8Add Image to 10 feet. After, completing the painting last evening, I happened to go to, that side of the city and I saw this sculpture and I realised I have developed a personal bond with it :-) I guess thats the power of re-creation! he he
About my painting, I have posted 3 images of the stages. The unique metal parts have interesting shapes, I dispersed these shapes around the central coherent form of the rhino which I painted in white. The actual image as in the photographs is blackish green. Earlier I painted it in green, with highlights in glittering green. But then after I repeatedly looked at it, I realised that the green was clashing with the other colors, so I changed it to white . As the intention in this painting is mostly to give the subtle variations in color, I thought to make it a little colorful…
