In a nutshell...
It was only a couple of months ago that I turned thirty. And despite myself I couldn't help but feel that I have tipped myself over the peak and now it's a down-slope, and that suddenly I am bestowed with the secrets of intellectual enlightenment. That feel...

Van Gogh's lust for life
I had
the pleasure of watching the movie, Lust for Life , recently. Vincent Van
Gogh's life rolls in front of our eyes with crisp colours and sharp chiaroscuro  all around. I was just amazed that the filmmakers actually
managed to bring out the characterist...

MI GUERNICA
Oil on canvas,
241cm x 135cm

The abstract painting, GUERNICA, by Pablo Picasso is an anti-war statement; it portrayed in abstract form the tragedies and horrors war inflicts upon innocent civilians, and to this date it holds a monumental status among the masterpieces depicting war and its aftermath.
It was hard to not get engulfed by the painting's grandness. And, thus started my own rendition of Guernica. Even as our nation reels back from severe blows of corruption, war, terrorism, domestic violence, rape, it's equally dismaying to see that nothing majorly happens to prevent them. There is an uproar, then debates, then discussions, then mentioning, then whispers, and then people forget and move on. I'm no saint either, for I have my share of drawbacks. But, I believe there is a great deal of power in a piece of art to change the course of history. I remember a quote by Picasso I recently read. He said - Painting is an instrument of war. MI GUERNICA is my effort to make a statement against the horrors that I find in my vicinity.

abstract form the tragedies and horrors war inflicts upon innocent civi...

Art or just a 'Rooster tied to P#is'*
Inside my head, there's been this savage battle between the existence of art in its true sense and the possible invasion of new form of art for quite some time now. It all started when I was told that just good, old painting was not enough to be an accompli...
