Takeaway Art


The original works are all there but for those looking for some mementos from the India Art Fair, there is quite a lot to take home. If a stall handled by Art Mall has art material and supplies at a discount, at the Vadhera Bookstore, apart from books, one can check out postcards of Atul Dodiya's works (Rs 500 for a set of 24). An aluminum teapot painted with the work of a street artist (Rs 1,800) can add some kitsch to your kitchen, and wall clocks with the works of Arpita Singh and SH Raza (Rs 1,250) will serve a dual purpose. There are also silk cushion covers with prints of Manjit Bawa's bulls and MF Husain's horses (Rs 1,000 each). The stall by Quirk Box, meanwhile, is truly quirky and pop. An antique teak chair with motifs of animals on the upholstery (Rs 8,500) could refurbish your house, while you may dress up your iPad with a neon sleeve for Rs 1,800. The Kochi Biennale stall, meanwhile, is in support of the event that is battling a paucity of funds. A T-Shirt here costs Rs 800, a mug with an illustration of Fort Kochi comes for Rs 350, while a biennale bag will set you back by Rs 850.
