One Love Warli Art

Warli Art- Creative Backdrop For Birthday 

One Love from the Indian Tribal Art- Warli. This has been demonstrated by Adivasi since ages. Noe it is quite popular and emerged as one of the forms of art. Artists like Jivya Mashe (Written about him in separate post: Jivya Mashe-Indian Warli Art) really took this art form of Warli to the world and at next level through his many national and international exhibitions. We tried this on 6 feet x 18 feet white clothe for a backdrop during the first birthday of my daughter Venu. Dung is applied on the clothe and then by using white colours the composition is illustrated. Me and my brother enjoyed while making this! This interesting method of preparing Warli is explained on D’source, IIT Bombay Website.

Different States of Mind

State of Mind – Different photographs different states of mind. Immense power of Mind. Sometimes sentimental, slippery like water gel beads! Sometimes enlightened, depicted by Dhwaj- Flag on the Temple! Sometimes ignited like a torch! Very few times disciplined, struggling for everyday! And sometimes creative like a Child. Asking for the Childhood back! In Marathi there is song Lahanpan Dega Deva- God, Please take me back in Childhood!

Padma awards for Design

Need to be thought on what A BALASUBRAMANIAM has said. I strongly support the point he has made in this post!

Design thoughts

Today’s list of Padma awards are out and there is no designer, still, in the list. I blogged about this, last year as well. The government finds it fit to recognise Ajay Devgn’s work as worthy of an award but not any of the design stalwarts, who used design to bring about long-lasting changes in society and the profession. To provoke a discussion on the subject, I present here, my list of Padma awards, deserving for design. This is of course, only the beginning. There may many more that I may have missed.

H Kumar Vyas, Design Educator, Ahmedabad kumarvyasH Kumar Vyas deserves a Padma award for pioneering Design education in this country and giving a distinct Indian touch to the curriculum that was launched at NID, when the design programmes began. He continues to influence and contribute to design education, through his books and research.
