The show was opened by Sheila Dixit (Chief Minister, Delhi) and was curated by Divya Nirula.

The exhibition was on for two days, and was greeted with an amazing response. Gratitude towards all those who took time out to come see and showered affection on the art. THANKS.

About the book,
it's getting edited, the announcements can only be made once we submit it,
so hopefully that will happen soon as well.

THANKS again for bearing the crazy casual postings of an artist and returning for more.
Also a big BOW down to all the amazing art out there, keep it coming:)

first stop on your balog! nice

Marcelo Vignali said...

Wow, your works are amazing. When I saw the size of the door I thought to myself, "That painting must be close to ten feet." Then I read the caption, 10 FEET! Very impressive, not only because of the size, but because it is difficult to maintain control over the composition and proportions when art gets that big. Congratulations on your entry into the exhibit, and congratulations on the wonderful art.

Marcos Mateu said...

I really, really enjoyed this. The humor works brilliantly, and the animation is much better than I had imagined. The way you have “blended” (hehe) it all together makes this look like a solid, whole product, as good as any Pixar short. Probably better. But then again: That’s my opinion.
