Shopping for holidays is a terrible affair when you are going through racks and piles of warm clothes meant for the western winters, especially if you are planning to hit the beach this yearly break. Lets face it, we in the tropical countries do not really experience much of winters, apart from the occasional nippy air.… Continue reading Tropical Winter Holiday Look Book

“Everything you can Imagine is Real”
– Pablo Picasso
As life imitates art and art imitates life, much of my imagination is fueled by art and artists around the world. I want much of my life to be art as only art is the proper taste of life. Great artists like Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Pablo Picasso among many others have inspired us to dream and create beyond ourselves. And hence, today being the World Art Day, I have decided to give back and make a minuscule contribution to the vast yet fascinating world of art.
For this project, I collaborated with Hidesign, a company so vested in art and craftsmanship that they have an Exclusive collection of hand painted bags by Artist Amrita Nambiar. The theme was Alice in Wonderland and we set out to create wonderland on my body through just paint and makeup.
I am lucky to be surrounded by talented and creative people in my life, people who can create emotions, arouse passion and transcend reality. I worked with the immensely talented fine art artist, Indumathi Swamy from Bangalore, trying her hand at body paint for the first time, and yet excelling in creating such a mind blowing work of art on my body. All credits goes out to the rest of the crew who made this come alive and assured me of the fact that you can create all that you imagine.
