I am a Creator, Dreamer & Traveller, here is a bit about me…..
Favourite design/art piece
La Familia Sagrada -Barcelona. By Architect Gaudi. A marvel. A wonderful mix of Gothic and Art Nouveau. (Photo via:Wallpapersgalaxy) and Andy Warhol | Marilyn Monroe. An inspiration. The reason I am an artist.
Favourite project I’ve worked on.
It’s a tough call. Making 12, 30ft Mixed Media Pop Art inspired works for the Big Cinema worldwide chain and having strong creative liberty was something I thoroughly enjoyed.
Directing (Read, Giving Instructions to) Sachin Tendulkar for a print ad, has got to be an unforgettable experience.
But then again, there’s Quirk Box, my baby.
Undoubtedly New York. The rush in Manhattan is unmatched by any city in the world. Culturally attuned, the ultimate cosmopolitan melting pot, the lifestyle, it has to be NYC.
Favourite weekend destination
I can’t quite call it a weekend destination, but the best quick getaway around my side of the world has to be Goa.
Hard Rock Cafe – Pune
Greek Gyro Stalls – New York
Pasta Mania – Singapore
Favourite design event.
TED Global – Brilliant Minds. Brilliant Ideas. A Brilliant Concept.
