beautiful thoughts & creations by various people

Street to Pop Culture

with one comment

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.

  1. Hello Nisha Ji,

    Interesting technique I see here. A combination of digital and traditional. I am personally not very much into computers…use it only for Karela Split, but I am amazed to see that beautiful artwork like this can be done using computers.

    Very nice – my good wishes to Sohan Jakher.

    Gorakh Nath.
