Dear friends, I would like to share something really positive I have seen happening in this lockdown time. My Elaura family artist Sabir, who stays in slums in Mumbai almost next to the railway track, is teaching painting to the kids nearby slum. These kids have nothing new to learn, no school going on, no alternate arrangements for coping up with the syllabus of the current year like my kids having online schooling now. This person is doing all this despite major health issues like a complete failure of one kidney and struggling to save another one. Posting his outstanding abstract painting work here and few of his workshop images with these kids.
Happy to share this article written by me on the subject ‘ Relevance of Art in Architecture’ and published in JOURNAL OF THE INDIAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS- issue 03-04. Looking forward to knowing your views.
