An idea that requires re-thinking

This was an old idea of using textile as the medium for information graphics. May be the idea has already been used by fashion designers or graphic designers but then how about transforming a complete paragraph of information into info-graphics and then putting it on a sleek evening gown.
Might need to rethink again ?

In a span of one and a half years

Showcasing few of the art and craft works i have done during my
one and a half year sabbatical at Guwahati.

Krishna Lila: The mural depicts three significant incidents from Lord Sri Krishna's life - Kaliya Daman (the slaying of the serpent demon), Maha raas lila (the divine act between the lord and his disciples), Dwaraka Mahal (love making with Rukmini and Satyabhama).
The illustration style and patterns are inspired from Madhubani paintings, while the human forms are modified.
