I made this image during the annual Kala Ghoda Arts Festival. The scene involves a torched-club juggler doing his thing to the beat of drums in the background. While the fire jugglers were doing their dance and juggling, three artists were portraying them on canvas – Live. The last time i had shot a flare bartender doing his thing, i had got some amazing patterns. With that at the back of my mind, i shot to get patterns in the fire jugglers act.
Kala Ghoda is the undoubted Art District of Mumbai as one gets to feast his or her eyes on the pavement art galleries, a concept which is quite unique in itself. Many a times, if one is lucky, he gets to see the artists in their element.
I came across an artist who i have seen here since the last many years, and he does a complete clone of the photograph he has, with his pencil. The eyes in the potrait seem so lively. Infact it was the eyes which made me stop and notice the artist. You’ll can judge for yourself the level of perfection being displayed in the artwork.
