Here’s some news, I am in the midst of upgrading my blog….and technology-challenged that I am, I require all the help I get. Luckily my tech-savvy family and friends are willing to help me out.

Bringing forth the lives of street vendors here are few works out of Sohan Jakhar’s series called ”Vendorism”. Drawing inspiration from the splendidly frescoed havelis or mansions of Shekhavati(a region north of Jaipur) Sohan creates beautiful backgrounds which he modernizes using pastel colours from pop culture. The foreground on the other hand speaks of a completely different world of roadside bazaars that he creates by taking photographs, digitally modifying them and then painting them on the canvas. The finished work totally left me speechless.
Sohan has had many solo and group shows around the world. His work was also exhibited at Sotheby’s, New York, which is one of the world’s premier auction houses. To enjoy more of his awesome work click here.

I believe in recycling and try to do my bit wherever possible. Recycling conserves resources, saves energy, helps protect the environment and reduces landfills….why wouldn’t you want to recycle?! It is only recently though that I came across the term Upcycling. Upcycling is using waste and converting it into something of better quality or value.
Initiated by designer Nupur Goenka ”Lets” is an eco-friendly company that saves dying objects and gives them a new life. Here are a few of their handmade, one-of-a-kind bags and laptop covers that are durable, water-resistant & easy to clean. 100% made of left overs the materials used to create these bags are plastic of old billboard signs and sarees & leather bits from factory wastes.
