Thoughts are a power house of action or inaction alike. They stem from seemingly calm shores to sometimes end in a vortex. Young upcoming artist Jayesh Borse uses this strong state of mind as his inspiration and muse for his debut solo exhibition. The exhibition will be held on the 4th to the 15th of September at the gallery. He celebrates them with a flourish. Bold colours, textured thick application, use of roller and knife, and bold brush strokes create a bespoken energy. Layered in, the hues seem to hold a narrative of their own, involving the viewer and taking him deeper into their world.

One needs a lot of seating options in the house at the time of a party — a fact that one always seem to realise right before a big group of company comes a-calling. Therefore, these festive seasons, rather than investing in a bunch of expensive armchairs or worse, pulling out some unattractive folding metal seats, add a few colourful poufs to your pad- just apt for the décor of a Diwali party. Sprinkled here and there, they let off a laid-back casual vibe, take up little space and provide extra seating whenever it is needed. They're also quite on trend at the moment, popping up in well-designed rooms all over the place. They can be used to bring a bang of colour to any room, without replacing the main furniture items, or as an impromptu coffee or side table. The idea behind designing of this collection was to perk up the living spaces by throwing in some playfulness by way of colours, textures, shapes to break away from the monotony, especially for the upcoming festive season.
