Want to do up your bedroom or living room? How about decorating your space while providing daily meals to the underprivileged across the country?
Say hello to The Plated Project - an initiative that uses art to fight hunger by joining hands with artists across the world to create one-of-a-kind art plates and sell them, the proceeds of which go to charity to feed the lesser privileged sections of society - mentally and physically challenged kids, migrant workers, malnourished, daily wage earners, sex workers and their kids and other causes and NGOs that they're associated with.
They work on different themes - childhood, memories, nostalgia, daughters, hope, cartoons, gaming and more - every month on the basis of which artists interpret the same in their unique style. Each artwork is then digitally printed on ceramic plates as limited edition art. And don't even get us started on how stunning each piece is. 'Where The Streets Have No Name', 'Shared Happiness', 'Daughters', 'Game Nights' and 'King Of Ludo' are a few personal favourites.
I also loved 'Timeless Tales' that depicts a grandmother narrate fairy tales to her grand daughter. 'The Flower Seller' and 'Turning The Tide' depict how the pandemic (an 'invisible enemy') has turned the lives of a flower seller and a boatman upside down while 'a Vivid Dream' shows how a couple of kids weave stories through valleys and jungles to escape from boredom.
Each piece comes with a display stand, a wall hook and an info card. All of them are priced at INR ,1450. So, keep them on the desk or put them up on your wall - the choice is yours. They actually make for great gifts too!
