Folk SciFi is my series of works where I am exploring ‘Indo-Futurism’ .I have tried to reimagine characters from native traditions and mythology in a Science fiction environment out of my childhood memory – which is either real or constructed. The folk tales and myths from my native[Southern part of India] are older than thousands of years. These stories are passed on by generations to generations with different versions over the years. As an artist I am adding my own version from my own experiences to these age old stories and minting them to the blockchain for the first time in history. Each of these illustrations depict a unique story which is pointing towards the culture and history of my land ,its people and its geography. All these illustrations are depicted with a tinge of ‘magical realism’ by introducing the elements of 90s SciFi Pop culture as part of the narrative.
