Who are they?
While playing in the soil of Hapur, Uttar Pradesh during the first seventeen years of my life, he remained connected with essentials of a simple lifestyle- moving on the streets, meeting simple people and mingling with art and nature. After his schooling, the big city Delhi initiated me into college life at St. Stephen's College - a life full of adventure, activities, exploration and what not. One unifying thread which ran and still runs through my soul and lifestyle is art. His family bloodline and my mother's artistic brilliance sparked off my interest in the world of fine arts. In school and more vehemently in college, the exposure to different art forms related to literature, activities in college societies, or simply painting for leisure gave me ample opportunity to invest in art, writing, theatre and social work- not just in performative aspect but in organization too.
Internships with organisations like Happy Hands Foundation and Potli - A Bag of Wonders helped me connect to a larger artistic world where I learned and taught two Indian Traditional folk art- Jadoo Patua and Warli-to kids, adults and teachers. More recently, travelling and exploration have become indispensable to my daily routine, whether it is simply a walk around university campus, Delhi Streets and markets or National Gallery of Modern Art meeting new people with their interesting tales and jokes, along with gathering some informational acumen.
His interests lie in experimenting with art and himself in a serious yet fun manner, widening my horizon of personal and societal understanding and commitment.
As an art enthusiast, his knowledge of art ensued from childhood experience, literature and formal training under Indian traditional master artists. This has helped me delve deeper into art and appreciate it better. The informal jokes and interpretations of the street art he has gathered will make the walk enjoyable and informative! Studying English Literature at St. Stephen's College, an art enthusiast who has explored art through painting, teaching and simply walking around Delhi! An active member of The Fine Arts Society of St. Stephen's. Work experience at Potli- A Bag of Wonders; and at Happy Hands Foundation- wherein got trained in 'Jadoo Patua' and 'Warli' and further taught them for an year. A person who sees art everywhere!
