Kavla – The Crow

Abhijit Kalan graduated from Sir J.J. Institute of Applied Art and majored in photography. He loves reading, writing in Marathi, doodling, travelling and meeting random people to strike good conversations.

While in school, he was nick named Kavla (crow in Marathi). During one of his college assignments, when asked to create an identity design for himself, Abhijit designed a crow. This was the start to his series of crow illustrations, a project  where he decided to complete a series of 100 crow illustrations. He is on his 87th at the moment, each representing a part of himself.

Here are a few of his insanely cool crow illustrations:





Abhijit has worked for renowned advertising agencies like DDB Mudra , Ogilvy & Rediffusion Y&R. He also works as a freelance advertising photographer and does stock photography for India Picture, Visage Images & Shot India.

    I know Abhijit since college. Being one of the closest buddies, I know how he has always been experimental and passionate about photography. But later, out of nowhere, he started illustrating these crows which were really interesting! The way he could expand this ‘self-expressing’ project to almost 100 crows is definitely commendable. Curious to know what else we should look out for!

    All the Best ‘Anna’ as few of us lovingly call him 🙂
