Inspired by timeless Mughal monuments in India and fascinated by the way simple geometry was used to create infinite patterns this collection of hand painted prints plays on the various elements of architecture- the construction as well as the surface designs. Juxtaposing geometric designs with organic floral shapes, the patterns fit together like tiles. Focusing on the transformation of 2D patterns to 3D forms and vice versa this projects attempts to sample traditional art in a contemporary fashion. The patterns created are inspired by traditional Mughal motifs but are treated with various techniques and mediums such as laser cutting, stenciling and gold foil printing in order to create a range of designs that work together as a whole as well as on an individual level.
