the exhibit

2020 was the year like no other. It’s been almost impossible to keep up with the news, and every sharp turn that’s happened, whether it be on an international, national, or personal level. As the new year is upon us, there are still many question marks as to what is to come, what will happen next.

RuiningMagazines

Conceived in 2016, RuiningMagazines a.k.a Zahra Baldiwala, started off with a few Instagram posts of old ripped up magazines. As the posts grew in number, Zahra decided to venture into exploring the digital space that she primarily finds herself in now.

With a Master in Fashion Brand Management and a year and a half of experience in the fashion and retail space, Zahra found solace in creating art after a long day. A couple of life-changing freelance projects later, she decided to leave fashion behind and make her passion into a livelihood. Zahra has worked on projects for the music festival Neon East Fest, The Ikat Story, various indie musicians, as well as Vh1 India where she currently works as an Assistant Producer.

Her love for scissors, glue, and creating conglomerations, is paired with the desire to carve a niche for herself in the design world. As a self-taught artist, it has been interesting to see RuiningMagazines evolve into the brand it is today.

Kim Kaul

Kim Kaul is a painter and a poet who lives and works in Mumbai. Her work plays with the idea of self: how, in this vast landscape of our emotion, can we understand why we feel the things we do, and how they manifest into our behaviour? As someone who has experienced mental illness, she has spent a vast majority of her time being intimately aware of her emotional responses. Through her work, she aims to dissect the emotions we encounter through our environments and experiences and make sense of them from an intimate, personal perspective.

Keya

Keya Singh (b. Mumbai, 1995) is a visual artist focusing on video and performance art. She is currently studying Fine Art and Experimental Media at Prague College (Prague, Czech Republic). She has exhibited her work at several galleries as well as performed at performance and new media art festivals around the Czech Republic.

“My identity is an amalgam of the culture I come from, the people that raised me, the content I consume as an adult, and my present environment. Isolating myself in a foreign land has given me the time to reflect on my past and present while trying to project myself into a possible future. What does it really mean to ‘belong’? Can we find joy in the unfamiliar? My work itself, and my motives for creating it serve as focal points in my understanding of who I am” says Keya.

Cards For A Cause

Cards For A Cause, a design-led social initiative created by online art platform The Artlet Poetry and creative agency Cliq, founders Nidhi Shah and Rhea Patel have made it their mission to raise funds out of collaborative art.

The project comprises 55 artists-made playing cards, each capturing a different mood of the pandemic. Hailing from nooks and corners of India, all the artists from this project have created a unique piece of artwork that’s as comforting as it is beautiful. All the proceeds from this initiative go towards COVID relief funds. For every deck you buy, you feed 10 meals to those affected adversely by the pandemic. The project has so far distributed over 5000+ meals and aims to continue to donate more.

Reach out to the creators on Instagram at @theartletpoetry, @nidhlet, @wecliq, & @rheatpatel.
