My Art Philiosophy

We want to make create art – short films, cartoons, poems, doodles, master-pieces, hummings, croonings etc. – PERIOD – and this space captures our efforts. Or we hope to get somewhere. Anyone is free to join.

And this should be ‘hatke’ kind of art. Not wimpy ones. For example, when we make cartoons, they should look cartoonish (with exaggerations and high-dose of artificiality). If we make films, they should be hard-hitting. If we make plays, they should be out-of-this world since that is what a theatre-space affords us to do. Of course, all of this should be highly available and not push any propoganda. We might hurt people but we dont care. It is part of the grand plan because anger is the best way to bring out the true hidden pent-up feelings.

Because I believe that it is my right as a human being and my role as an artist to think, create and challenge. The dramatists who I admire are brave.
Art is not necessarily a cosy space, designed to make us feel good about ourselves. It is a place where the most basic human expression – that of the imagination – must be allowed to flourish.

But from the lessons I have learnt, these have to be done using as minimal resources as possible and no minimiler. It should be open. With no expertise needed. After all, we are students in the University of life. We do not want to escape life like that Thoreau guy –
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately. To front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived”

So, lets reboot…
