What Do We Have Here?
Having spent some time in New York, Bakula made her way back home to India to pursue her love for arts and make a living out of it. She paints on vintage documents, like old love letters, bank documents, postcards, stamp paper, bills and legal documents from the early 1900’s. One could even find birds, animals, food and mundane day-to-day objects in her artwork.
Why Vintage Paper?
When asked about the love for vintage, she went on to tell us her love for old things and how she’s been collecting vintage paper since forever. According to her, everything vintage has a beautiful story to tell, so if one can enhance that create something even more magical out of it, then why not?
