Anpu Varkey
A voyeur, a drifter who is addicted to heights, time travel and insipid barren landscapes. I have sustained painting large scale for over a decade now, but I got into street art very inadvertently. It's been four years now since I've identified the streets as a potentially limitless canvas for exploration. The initial attempts were small scale stencils and wheat pasting, which matured into large scale murals over the past few years.
The themes I have worked on have been incongruent and situational but the cat remains an indispensable form, this adulation is the result of having spent innumerable hours living with one.

Dhruv Sarker
Calcutta had always had much to offer to the world of music. One such artist to be reckoned with, is the 25 year old drummer Dhruv Sarker. Dhruv,owing to his experience from playing at a variety of music festivals,such as Escape Festival, Ragasthan, Weekender or perhaps in lieu of the knowledge he gathered in the course of playing with a number of bands belonging to a vivid range of genres, like Turfe (Ambient Rock), Write In Stereo (Indie Dance/ Punk), The Page (Punk Rock), Ganesh Talkies (Bollywood/Pop), Ifs and Buts (singer-Songwriter/Folk) has been able to develop a style that not only has an innate fineness to it but also has a spectrum of versatility that is positively enjoyable for the listener. What makes this Calcuttan drummer particularly remarkable is the fact that he is self taught. Currently Dhruv awaits his admission to The Institute Of Contemporary Music Performance for a higher Diploma Course. However, the real ingenuity of this artist lies in his ability to have successfully found a balance between perfection and edge, technique and method.

His research and approach is deeply rooted in profound aesthetic and theoretical aspects of ancient Indian Arts and Mythology. Having exposed to the art of comic book making since his early days, Harsh's first graphic novel was published in 2008. Harsh's personal universe of stories is inspired from sublime experiences of his practices.
His approach towards his work is rather ritualistic and meditative.

Rosalind Malik
My name is Payal Rosalind Malik
I live in New Delhi
I draw, paint and like to sing

The most i remember of my younger days was me drawing/painting
I loved to draw expressions
I loved to paint my surroundings
The one and only that gave me happiness without asking

Time went by...
I grew up and with that my experiences..
To an extent where i lost myself
Today I look back and wonder.. Was that really me??

Yes it was..
How sure, how determined I was once upon a time
I thought
How could I let my love go so far away from me...
Could I not bring it back?

And today while I sit and write my introduction to you
I know what I have to do
Go on be me child again
Be me once all over again
Become the love i knew
Being me is who

Sachin Pillai
Sachin has been in Mumbai seven years, having done an initial stint in television where he learnt the basics of the more technical parts of the profession. Ever since then, he's been involved in every aspect of the business with each project he has spearheaded- from shoot to final play-out level mostly editing his own films.
Of late though, after a very fruitful 1 year in advertising as a DA, and 2 years of freelance he has developed a bank of visual styles over the years. Whether it is combining live action and graphics or purely synthesising visual imagery using effects and filters on set. He likes to look at it as developing a mix of old school and current sensibilities.
His first real taste of art in cinema came upon editing the film 'Man Eats Rock' for performance artist Nikhil Chopra and Munir Kabani, around which time he had been experimenting with his own idea of a non-verbal or abstract narrative. He was also deeply involved in a non-mathematical study of experimental feedback with VJ Viktor Furiani.
Sachin's films are best described as fragile in terms of shot-taking, as he likes to look for moments that punctuate states of the mind in cinematic form. Frequently interspersing graphics with live action, the VFX themselves derived in some way from reality.

Sachin Shetty
The brainchild of Mumbai-based audio-visual artist, Sachin Shetty, Drift is a multidisciplinary art project which began as a manifestation of subconscious visions and continues to be an expression in letting go. Sachin, who has a past-life history with Print production, works variously with video, sound, line-based drawings, animation and street art that finds expression at varying scales. His process is mostly an intuitive intersection between mediums, heavily influenced by science fiction, patterns in nature and urban underground culture. Rendered almost exclusively in a monochromatic palette and line-based compositions that have come to be synonymous with Drift, the final works have a hypnotic, meditative quality. Having had a strong presence in the Indian street art scene, Drift is passionate about using street art to establish deeper connections with people. ôI love street art as a form of expression because itĺs open to everybody who uses the streets as a transition space in their waking momentsö.

Sanjib Roy
Yantr / यंत्र is a Sankrit word which means 'Machine'. Yantr is an Indian Street Artist with a vision to make socio-political issues accessible to the general public through the medium of street art. Yantr's work revolves around the complexity of machines and organic forms, mixed together in his signature eclectic style.
Before becoming an independent artist, he garnered several years of experience in the creative advertising world working as an art director for various ad agencies in India. A travel enthusiast, he has biked extensively through India using his art as a means to initiate debate on issues he is deeply passionate about. He is also interested in land art and makes large scale interventions regularly.

Shankar Barua
Shankar Barua has been many things in life before coming around to his present preoccupations as Managing Trustee of The AeA, in which role he is also Curator of CeC 2015.

Whereas he continues to be some of these things still, his primary goals presently have to do with promoting and empowering creative experimentation & innovation in countries such as India, on the back of the burgeoning evolution and spread of technology.

Shazeb Shaikh
With a focus on experimental practices as a curator, I've been engaged with The Academy of Electronic Arts (The AeA) in New Delhi, India since 2010. Serving as an Executive Trustee and Core Co-Curator with The AeA, I've been part of a growing global multi-disciplinary community of over 3000 cutting-edge artists, scientists and performers.
As an independent curator, I have explored several questions Iĺve had as an individual by finding answers in creating frameworks of inter-disciplinary artistic research and production. Iĺve also been actively involved in public space projects and researching and developing sub-cultural practices in Mumbai, the city I live in. Most of my work is based in spontaneous creation and expression and usually involves fusing new people to create unknown situations and engineering new collective imaginations of beauty and its future.
