The problems we face are these knock-offs, unavailability and even when they are available, their ridiculous prices. But what are the reasons behind such a sad state of affairs? What is really stopping us from achieving true collector status?

    Diving into an ocean of melodyThe problem

    There comes a point in everyone’s life when they become wildly fascinated by a particular activity. Most of us would label it as no more than a passive inclination, but for some it may turn out to be the first step towards truly mastering an art form.

    The cause

    However, some perceived obstacle usually stops them from delving further into the subject. Most often than not, the obstacle is lack of information, or the availability of necessary resources and the consequent uncertainty that follows.

  • Samdani Seminars: Art in body steps

    It is an open space. As you walk forward across the balcony, the man who is smothered in grey paint comes alive.

    He is moving around in a circle that he has painted on the floor. There are bags of raw meat next to him.

    “They’re full of chicken livers,” a spectator tells me. The artist, Atish Saha, then goes on to open the bags of meat and tie the pieces to his limbs and hangs them around his neck.

    Transitional wear 101

    The weather, recently has been too crazy to deal with!

TMAG brings you a full-proof guide for this year’s transitional weather, from the cool winter onto the colourful springThe art of layering
