Cities and designers have a long history of shaping & influencing each other. Be the sprawling modern metropolises or places steeped in ancient history – every city has its own unique voice and unmistakable identity that affect the work of the artists living there or visiting it.

BOMBAY SPESHUL

From the time we set up shop in Bandra – we have collected quite a variety of artwork that articulates the dynamic love-hate relationship one has with this City of Dreams. From exploring the congestion with Beast Within, paying homage to old Bollywood posters with Bombay, rendering a minimalist list of all things Mumbai to celebrating the stalwart citizens with Bombaywale, we have got a very interesting cross-section of what this city means to our Artist. Other favourites include, The 3rd Dimension that abstracts being a couple in love on Marine Drive, Tiffin Towers that creates an apt metaphor using the dabba & highrises and Phono Sapiens that creates a pattern inspired by Mumbai locals.
