Category: Edition 2021

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, so they say. But, what about those who are deprived of their sight? Arjun is a little blind boy who sees the world… through his own vision. He is introduced to the art of stencil sketching by his cousin and artist – Ateesh. For those who perceive what is around them only through touch, this technique is another way to capture the beauty of the world.
