I dont really like to use this word kitsch to describe my work. But the press has done quite a job in naming it such. So I am going with the flow here
It started with one kettle-The kiss kettle. And then I was hooked. My mind was full of a multitude of ideas just waiting to be painted.I could not get them out fast enough. Each piece is an individual, one of a kind piece. And each has a story or a specific thought attached to it. I repeat a theme but never the same piece.
People have always told me to put a kaala teeka on my kidsthats where the idea of the Nazar batoo kettle was born. Singh is King kettle was born out of the fact that I am half a sardarni married to a sardar, my son wears a singh is king t-shirt bought from Amritsar, the movie came out, and I conducted a session for Bangalore Walks on Sikhism for their Living faiths of India walk. The Levitate balti was the result of my talking to a friend who owns a store called Levitate..
