Desi Art: For the love of god...

Friday, February 26, 2010

If anyone happens to be in the market for fun chic Hindu god art...I have found it. (I know, perhaps a niche market here). Regardless, people need to see Sanjay Patel's fantastic pop art. Sanjay is a Pixar animator based out of California who has taken deity art to a whole new level. He is the mastermind behind the book "The Little Book of Hindu Deities" and has turned dozen of gods and goddesses into fun, colourful and playful characters. Check out his work on Ghee Happy (he does prints, books, t-shirts etc). For any Hindu mommies out there (non-Hindu ones like me love it just as much), how fantastic would these prints look on a kid's wall? Explosion of culture all over your walls. Just fab. Happy friday folks.

I'm guessing this is a fun rendition of the artist himself.
