Jiten Thukral and Sumir Tagra work collaboratively in a wide variety of media including painting, sculpture, and installation, video, graphic and product design, web sites, music and fashion. Their vivid, colourful work typically exhibits a whimsical fascination with consumerism blurring the lines between fine art and popular culture, product placement and exhibition design, yet always through a distinctly Indian lens.
The result is a harmonious and beautiful clash of sorts that fuses the current influx of the Western mainstream with India’s deep-rooted cultural heritage.
