I happened to visit the Kochi Muziris Biennale this year. Although my inclination to art is confined to my fascination towards Vincent Van Gogh and my love for graffiti, the experience of this visit gave me an insight on an artist’s perspective of art. All the art installations were unique, with a clear stamp of contemporary thinking paired with simplicity in them.
Here is a glimpse of what I witnessed at the Biennale - Some pictures and some tidbits :)

Picture 1 – A perfect view of the Fort as it meets the Arabian Sea with grace. It was a fine sunny day, beautiful skies and a lot of fishes swimming into eternity.

Picture 2 – At first, just like any other art-blind person would react, I was puzzled at this installation. From a distance, it just seemed like a big, round, blue wall-hanging. A closer look revealed a single meticulously knit, crumpled blue cloth which formed a perfect circle.

Picture 3 – I was transported to a different dimension when I stepped into this sepia-colored space. The lighting, an old boat, and thousands of old photographs lying on the floor gave this space a totally eerie aura.  I couldn’t get my eyes off the Asian woman in Picture 4spellbinding art work by Dinh Q Le.

Picture 5 – Although, I didn’t quite get the science behind the installation, I made sure I captured the movement as a GIF. J

Picture 6 – I am always charmed by shapes and designs in windows and constructions. French windows are amazing! This one here is not French but I love it nonetheless

Picture 7 – A Swastik Swiss Army Knife with all the accessories you need by Biju Joze

Picture 8 – Artha by Prasanth Pandey – an installation made from blood sample blades (At first look, I was amazed but after knowing these are blood samples, I did squirm a bit)


Picture 9 – The Life of Stars by Lindy Lee – An amazing metal spill installation that caught my attention

Picture 10 – This is one of the best of all the installations I saw in this Biennale. It was more like a theme-park experience where Ryota Kuwakubo's Lost#12 showed us the play with light and shadow. A must-see!

Picture 11 – This piece here gathered a lot of crowd as it was placed outside and the water was whirl pooling in a great pace. I have tried to capture a GIF out of it.

Picture 12 – Awed and Amazed! That was how I was when I looked though this mirror reflecting installation.

That's all folks! :)

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.

Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

'Yo-Yo' Tribe - A Meme

OK. Time for some fun, folks! Walk down the streets of any city, you are sure to find weirdos of all kinds. I am not being judgmental here, but trust me, there are a bunch of people who think of themselves as the coolest tribe on earth and the cool-ness is defined by their hair-dos and hair styles.  Let me give you some examples here...

Beginning the meme with a Zen-like look. I should admit that this look is more 'yogic' than weird. But only until he doesn't untie that bun on top! I name them the Zen tribe! :D
This style screams attention; attention from railroad signals to be specific. There are so many parallel tracks for trains to ply! The Awesome Railroad Tribe!

Well, well, I only get to see between my strands of hair and this is called 'Looking- through-the-hair-look'. "Are you smiling? winking? blushing? I don't have a clue!"

"Fine, I am growing a pine forest in my head and yes, it is fall time and some trees are starting to change color. I be…

Ever Yours, Vincent.

Never in a thousand years did I think I would be obsessed with a late, delusional psycho who was also an exceptional artist and a noteworthy character with a peculiar interest for romance.
My affair started around 8 years back; a time when I had started writing and blogging for the first time. I visited this pop-up museum of contemporary art which showcased Vincent Van Gogh’s choicest documentaries. Many of his famous paintings were also on display. That was the day I fell in love, with his art, with the way he loved, with the way he expressed himself before he fell into life’s inevitable trap.
The beautiful yellowish hues that dominated his paintings, the sunflowers, the potato eaters and the starry night which comes alive in my dreams every night. Those letters he wrote his brother Theo with care, love and a pinch of attitude. That unconditional brotherly love, that aimless love he showed his friend and mentor Gauguin, that love he showed the random women he saw and painted, that lo…
