Made in a limited edition of 100 linocut prints. Lasts decades. Comes framed, signed and numbered.

I spent all of my childhood Diwalis with my grandparents. Every Diwali morning, my grandma would apply a patch of Geru by the door and create her iconic "Thipkyachi (dotted) Rangoli." She is such a pro at it!

Her best friend, who is South Indian, taught her these beautiful patterns, and as I grew up, she passed some of them on to me. I'm now turning these designs into linocut prints!

I started with the classic aesthetic—drawn in white on the textured base of Geru—and then expanded to using a bunch of other vibrant colours.

Process

This is a relief print hand-made by using the linoleum cut technique. The surface of a linoleum block is carved so that its raised area can be inked and manually transferred to paper. The areas that are cut away remain white. 

Paper

Each artwork is made in a limited edition of hundred pieces. The art is transferred on bespoke cotton paper with archival inks that will last decades. Your print comes uniquely numbered and signed by the artist.
