MUKTA WAD­HWA

Su­bodh Kerkar’s Chicken Caf­real is a truly en­joy­able work of con­tem­po­rary In­dian art. The sculp­ture is a ma­jes­tic rooster made of truck tyres. It is part of a se­ries that deals with the ocean as a medium of in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal cul­tural dif­fu­sion. The se­ries de­picts fruits, plants and cuisines that reached the shores of Goa through the ocean. Chicken Caf­real has fine de­tail­ing and work­man­ship, and it ex­u­ber­ates the joy and pas­sion that Kerkar cre­ated it with. I also en­joy fol­low­ing the work of cal­lig­ra­phy artist Nikheel Aphale, par­tic­u­larly the whim­si­cal cal­li­graphic forms he cre­ates with pan­cake bat­ter.
