waone-india2

Waone and AEC better known as Interesni Kazki, are currently travelling in India and creating some new works along the way. Waone recently shared this new mural titled “Visions and sounds of strangeness” painted somewhere around South Cliff, Varkala, Kerala, India.
Known for their surrealist imagery and meaningful works full of symbolism and traditional elements, Ukrainian artists painted this colorful image using many elements from local culture. Created on a local house somewhere in the lush rain forest around temple town of Verkala the piece quickly turned into a sensation among locals. As usual, their narrative work carries many messages carried through fairy-tale like visual language that Interesni Kazki have been known for, but we’ll let you discover those yourself.

Vexta – Kochi – India

This documents the creation of a series of site-specific public street paintings, which flow through from Mattancheery to Fort Kochi. Each piece contains a thematic narrative which can be read in any order.

The paintings build on themes Vexta has been exploring in her work for some time. Conceptually her work explores themes of metamorphosis, transcendence and our interconnectedness with the surrounding environment, through the creation of contemporary, secular works which play with ideas of life /death and the feminine experience.

Travel and the creation of site specific work that reflects the locations that they are made are important in Vexta’s practice and her response to the environment plays a significant part in the process of conceptual development.

Vexta – Trading Places

Brush

Vexta is one of the most interesting artists to come out of Australia. She was picked up by some guy called Banksy to feature in his ‘Cans’ Festival and subsequent film, Exit Through The Gift Shop. Recently, while every other wannabe was shamelessly networking at Miami Basel, Vexta was over on the other side of the world, working hard at India’s first Contemporary Art Biennale.
