Description

Note from the artist:

Drawn on a vintage paper from 1930, this one is for the brave hearts that dared to love - love against all odds. Sometimes you just have to be fearless and stand up for your heart. Just because you are different does not meant you cannot be together. You have to get out there and claim your space in the sun. He tells her - they can do it. He gives her the strength to fight their battles.

  • ABOUT Bakula Nayak

    A self-confessed stubborn romantic, Bakula Nayak noses out the magic stifled in the everyday, and elevates the mundane into something bright, dreamy and unique through her art.

    With an undergraduate degree in architecture and an MS in Communication Design from Pratt Institute, Manhattan, Bakula began her career at a fragrance house in New York. Following this, she pulled a long stint in retail package design with global brands such as L’oreal, Mikasa and Ralph Lauren, before moving back to her hometown in Bangalore.

    Bakula’s passion for collecting vintage paper, fused with her love for imagining the life stories of people who owned them, translates into tangible works of art. She breathes new life into the now forgotten pieces of beauty by illustrating on them. Gorgeously aged vintage papers form the perfect canvas to interpret the realities of Bakula’s world. Her remarkable pen and ink drawings and illustrations, jam-packed with funny, delightful and eccentric characters – hatted birds, diving penguins, fish with pirate eye-patches, sleeping cats, and dancing flamingos – are both vintage and contemporary, new and old, timeless and unique.

    An unfinished inventory of her daydreaming and her love affair with all things vintage - her work reflects her longing for romance, aesthetics, poetry and seduction in everything. In her latest series, Bakula Nayak pays tribute to love in all its forms – not just romantic love, but the love of parents, love for things, her own love for tea, love for the family, friends, the earth, gardens and more. She also taken inspiration from the ancient Indian poet Kalidasa’s poem about love, Ritusamhara, interpreting the love between newly married lovers across different seasons in the year.
