Finding Expression Naturally!
Abhishek Bairwan follows a simple creative process – listening to his heart. He starts out with a doodle in his sketchbook, looking at things around him. He simply begins with basic lines here and there, followed by a few ‘live’ drawings of people in trains or buses, trying to capture their moods. He then moves on to more abstracts forms of drawing, like mixed emotions, following which he chooses and brings the doodle/sketch to life by adding colour and texture.
Vh1 10 years Anniversary.
Done for Vh1 as a Facebook cover photo for their 10-year anniversary in India.
Abhishek has never really been one who has followed trends; he feels it take away the ability to solve a problem through a personal and unique creative process. So, trends don’t really affect his work. He avoids even looking at references before starting any work.
The subject of work, and the execution, are rather important aspects to him. Both of these go hand-in- hand, just like a good magic trick. Things around him play a very important part as influences.
Abhishek finds a lot of influence in every moment – like an amazing land of feelings, expressions and infinite stories. He picks one story that strikes him, and starts working on it – that’s his way to go.
