Three paintings from Chchin (Cochi) in the southern tip of India where some art students had found antique paper which they used as a canvass to combine old with new. To share what these vibrant young artists did, how they turned thewaterside into a 1960's style happenng, I have included photos of the kids, and how they painted in everything, including trees and rocks. One of the things which fascinates me about third world countries is the way artists use anything and everything to create beauty. It has inspired me to reuse and repurpose all kinds of things. And I am working towards teaching inner city kids here in NY city to do the same.
A note on some of these photos. In my travels to the poorest and most remote parts of the world, it occurred to me that people would never own photos of themselves or their loved ones. So I bring equipment to take photos and print on the spot. That is the suprise and the small photos being held up in some of these photos. Enjoy the art, and photos of the excited young artists.
