5x7 inch, drawings on paper, 2017
I feel like I time travel and deeply get involved in the beauty of Indian attire. Every state was so rich in their culture and everything was carved with details. After completing a few drawings, I scanned them and I continued making more Royal People.
But on 29 August 2017, Mumbai was flooded and I was stuck in Lower Parel station. Local transports were completely shut and I decided to walk to a friend’s house. I struggled to cover a two km road in four hours with a bag wrapped in multiple layers. My sketchbook and laptop was in my bag. I kept my bag on top of my head so that I could save it from flooded roads. When I reached home, I saw everything was wet and almost gone. I was sure that all my drawings are spoiled and I can’t do anything with them. After a few days I am seeing an effect which goes perfect with my vintage theme drawings. and here I’ve put a before and after versions of the same drawing.
