South Asian Design at Manchester Art Gallery, UK: 19 May 2017 to 27 May 2018

Delighted to have been selected to feature in The South Asian Design Show at Manchester Art Gallery UK, opening 19 May 2017 until 27 May 2018.
The show will feature my Poetic Reverence Wallpaper Series, commissioned especially for the exhibition. For this collection, architectural structures mainly Indian temples were the source of inspiration. This project explores representing these structures and patterns through drawings, challenging scale, space and perspective creating optical illusion & trompe l’oeil designs within space. The collection includes repeat and bespoke large-scaled site-specific wallpaper designs.

The exhibition, spanning the last three centuries, gives a taste of designs and techniques from this incredibly creative, resourceful and culturally diverse part of the world. The exhibition also explores how the region’s traditional crafts are inspiring contemporary art, design and fashion. For more infromation visit Manchester Art Gallery Website.

Video: MA RCA Final Wallpaper Collection


Here is a video I have created show casing my final project at the RCA. For this collection of wallpapers, Indian architectural structures mainly Hindu temples were the source of inspiration. The architecture is full of relief work, craftsmanship and patterns. I am interested in representing these three-dimensional structures and patterns through drawings, creating optical illusion/trompe l'Oeil designs within space.

Fragments of distortion have been added to the real to create a series of ornate wallpaper designs, which challenge scale, space and perspective. The large-scaled print-to-fit site specific wallpaper designs have the potential to be developed into wall paintings and large-scale projections. The collection also  includes repeat pattern wallpaper. Amalgamating Indian architectural patterns within my current western minimalist architectural environment merges different forms of architectural styles. This creates a visual impression and adds to the contrasting nature of my work, and to the optical experience.
