96 elephants are brutally massacred everyday for their ivory. If poaching continues, elephants could be extinct in 11 years. #UnTusked (@un_tusked ) is an art project to make people aware of the brutality and magnitude of these killings. We want to make sure that the images of this savagery are imprinted on people’s minds so they are compelled to act and give this problem the urgency it deserves. Can our 6” x 4” elephants – that we will be putting all around the world starting with #NYC - help save the real ones? Let's find out together:
*Installing 96 elephant figurines all around NYC, and also in other cities around the world, to spread the message. We hope that the tourists from China will take pictures of these installations and carry home the message with them.
* Asking galleries to exhibit the pictures and the figurines we have created
*Getting people to send postcards to the Chinese Embassy in New York.
THE WORLD YEAR OF PHYSICS
The World Year of Physics: Each letter of the alphabet is a Physics diagram. It took me a couple of light years to finish this. But my love for quantum physics made me do it. In an alternate universe I am a Physicist trying to meet myself in this world. I should stop.
For a brief while I drew and wrote comics for an Indian newspaper. These are some full page selects.
Royal Enfield - Bullet
ART / COPY: Hemant Anant Jain
Royal Enfield's Bullet motorbike has achieved cult status in India. And now slowly catching on in the world. My memories are marked with the gentle thump of its engine and my dad riding it around. I grew up on Louis L'amour westerns and this is a series of posters I made that brought together my love for the wild west and Bullet.
It's a trilogy. Part Tell Sackett, part Billy the Kid, part my dad.
