From surrealism to daily objects, it’s amazing what inspires a creator to conjure up a mystical world within his or her artworks.
Just as amazing are the illustrations of Svabhu Kohli, a visual artist based in a tiny village in Goa.
With the natural world playing as his inspiration, the 26-year-old artist remains fascinated with its mechanics—a facet that one keeps finding embedded in each of his works.
While deeply concerned with the looming threats to the ecology, he also showcases in his art aspirations of the world he wishes to inhabit.
Spending most of his time reading, exploring and studying ecosystems and habitats, Svabhu incorporates his observations into the illustrations, leading viewers to a dream-like trance and sometimes, on a path of finding themselves.
“The plan was always to be creatively involved and expand my thought process by gaining a range of experiences. I want to tell stories, reflect and bring forward my ideas using these tools”, he says.
Enter the beautiful world crafted by Svabhu, and be enthralled with the vivid and intricate detailing that has gone behind the process:
