Ahaana Festival 2017
The thematic art for Ahaana 2017 has been created by Ninada Kashyap. She is a professional architect who loves art. A graduate of IAAC Barcelona, she has been sketching, painting, and sculpting prolifically since she was five. She has recently made forays into pottery and textile design, and is a professor of design and digital architecture in Pune, India. When she isn't working or making art, she likes to eat dessert.
"Working with Ahaana was a deeply enriching personal experience. The exploration of gender roles and intersectionality in art and theatre made for an amazing inspiration. The use of pen-and-ink with a hint of red was in keeping with Ahaana's ideology of strength and femininity in equal measure." - Ninada
Thank you very much, Ninada Kashyap!
