The exhibition will visit Shillong, Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkata, Puducherry, Mysore, Nagpur and Jaipur.

On a never-ending journey in search of an ideal place, we find joy and meaning along the way.

Sometime in late 2006 I bought a Moleskine journal and a small selection of Tombow pens from a store on Tottenham Court Road in London. Nearly ten years later I rediscovered these supplies at the back of a drawer in my Bangalore studio and felt bad I had never used them – there and then I started working, and from the first few quick and spontaneous drawings this series took shape.

See the full series of 27 drawings here.
