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.
