'TWENTY for TWENTY', The Portret Project, New Delhi 2015

Our urban neighborhood is full of faces; known and unknown. The significant issues associated to urban reality like identity, migration, adaptability, and transformation are part of this existence. The urban visual culture includes a large volume of cinema posters which are highly influential on our day-to-day life and also an appropriate metaphor for urban existence. The overlaid layers of images resulting in a constant alteration of identity and the element of abstraction they bring in as a natural occurrence are often intriguing and surreal. A further fragmentation and re-assembling of these images using the interlocking shapes, transforms the overall image of portraits into another level of thought-provoking visual experience.
