Poetry, Art and the rest...

This week Kochi saw the second edition of Poetry Installation in the acclaimed Durbar Hall Art Gallery. It had four poets - Tensin Tsundue, CIni Mathew John, Rafeeq Ahmed and Ajessh Dasan - whose poetry were recited along side their amazing installations and with incredible sound effects. It was organized by Vinod Krishna, a movie-maker and writer, and his team.

You can read about it in detail in the article I wrote for The News Minute here. Hope you like it.



It's been weeks I have been doing some sketches and a few mixed media works. I am on a personal retreat right now...working out on an idea-painting for an upcoming exhibition(s). This is something I worked from Wyanne's online class as a breather. I must say that her videos are awesome and they always, without fail, inspire me... so here's to Wyanne.


It's been a pretty good week because I could focus on art alone...whether that be writing, art, music or movies.

I came across an Online Retreat - Woman Unleashed by Amber Kuileimailani Bonnici. It sounds like an awesome program. In case you are interested, you can check out the link here.

So, how was your week, friends?

Whatever art is called...

Soul searching
Soul stirring
Soul pacifying
I experience it at many levels
One way or the other

Perhaps everything comes
Under one roof
At some point or the other
Be it ordinary or surreal


The best way
Is to let in and
Let go
Deep into it
Without much
Consideration (read thought)

Sketch2- HuesnShades

Just for the fun of it
Even as a prayer


And embrace what you get
In return


For your surrender
Total surrender


It could even be mundane objects
Or meditative patterns
Or something deeper...
