lazy grafik



Type: Illustration + Literature
Location: -
Status: WIP
Collaborators: -


I always found myself indulge into public art installations ever since architecture school. This was primarily because of my obsession with creating art that could be physically touched and interacted with. Unlike exquisite art pieces in galleries.
My art-work always spoke about the journey of creation and fabrication. But missed out on telling the story of feeling.

Lazy grafik is a way of expressing my gratitude towards people and work that make me smile. They make me feel.
Whilst exploring different graphic styles, going out of my stubborn comfort zone to try out different possibilities of illustrations.
It is named Lazy grafik, because the process to make every piece  battled the lazy state of mind during the COVID-19 lockdown.

These illustrations hope to archive all the thoughts and feeling during the lockdown of 2020, in form of my first book.

What to do when you have nothing to do?
Do something!

The floating vipassana kitties are chillin with their halo on.
Being in the present.
Not worrying about everything that’s going on.
Just accepting it as it comes.
While the baby plants bloom in the summer time.
And two huge blots of LSD suspended on the ceiling, with a time machine in place of a clock.

Inspired from the works of shix chix/experimental illustrations.
The illustration style is a tribute to the bautiful work of paika.org, featuring some of my favourite elements.
They make me smile.

How can space make you feel?
A thought experiment inspired from the conversations of Juhani Pallasmaa and Peter Zumthor. This is my first attempt to dig into my memories and recognise spaces that make me feel.


The place featured here is Studio 823, one of the most welcoming, comfortable and warm spaces attached in my memory. Full of books, models, plants, cats, dogs, coffee and everything you could wish for in a work place.

I express my gratitude towards Sam, Sid, Faizan and Priyanka Pablo, who are responsible for most of my growth, learning and moulding here.

This place is home.

Priyanka Pablo’s hand drawn analog illustrations inspired this graphiqe.
There are many mistakes in it, but all glitches are part of the memories made here.

What is imagination to you?
The space in your brains

I grew up listening to Scott Mescudi’s Melodic Humms and Psychadelic synths. The musique made me feel dreamy and dazed.
The potential of how much your brains can imagine can be accelarated by substance. Mr.Rager.

Once you have that realisation of your inner power, you can distort reality and your thoughts into whatever you want.
The trick to trip within reality, is through art. Through emotions. Through feelings. Through Expression.

Vini’s been guiding me through this.

I remeber touch.
I need something more
