So this piece has been in the making since last year. Technically it was meant to be for Jayshree and Rakesh’s wedding present but it was no-where near ready so it lended itself to becoming their first anniversary present! #NaughtyKhilna!
A little bit about this piece. I had been for a graffiti lesson just before doing this, so was adamant that I wanted to use what I had learnt. My uncle had given us some big storage boxes, recycled from his workplace. Instead of putting them in the recycling bin, I thought why not use it for an art piece. It had a great surface to work on, it’s sturdy and massive! Wayheyyyy!
So I began, spraying away. However, like all my art pieces, I don’t plan and the end result never looks like how I thought about it at the start. It has steered in different directions whether it was moving away from a colour I didn’t like, or adding textures here and splats there. Moving orientation, doing portraits in pin pricks and realising that you can’t see it! Even though it was an awesome idea. All sorts happened.
I had free reign for the most part, apart from the having some photographs in the piece, which I put on in full force, all the sides of the wooden frame. Which I very proudly made myself with a lil help from Mum and Nishal.
Here’s some pictures of the start and inbetween.
Happy 1st Anniversary Jayshree and Rakesh.
May you both, live long and prosper x
Lots of Love
Khilna and the Gang x
