My main focus lies in appropriating motifs and patterns that are traditional Indian, to commemorate old traditional art and design and make people realize its beauty when looking at it from a new perspective. I am working with motifs from personal cultural backgrounds, Rajasthan and Hyderabad. Elements from the Nizami architecture of Hyderabad (Chowmahalla Palace and Charminar) are blended with motifs from Pichwai paintings, originating from Rajasthan. The lotus motif is chosen as the starting point, as it was common in both aesthetics. The motif is beautifully blended with the iconic mesh windows from the architecture and the cow and peacock motifs from the painting. My work is to be incorporated as pieces of furniture and fashion accessories, to bring aspects of traditional-contemporary India in our daily lives.
